Mackenzie sacked by Cambridge
Neil Mackenzie
Mackenzie didn't match up to Cambridge's standards
Cambridge midfielder Neil Mackenzie has been sacked by the club due to "persistent misconduct".

Mackenzie arrived at the Abbey Stadium for 40,000 from Stoke City in October 1999.

He was one of three players disciplined by Cambridge for their behaviour at the club's sporting dinner and the 24-year-old is due in court on November 20 for an alleged public order offence.

"The standards of this football club have to be upheld," said Cambridge manager Roy McFarland. "Sadly, Neil has let his standards slip too often which left me with no other course of action.

"I felt Neil had started to produce what we wanted him to produce on the football field and I felt that he was also beginning to become accepted by the supporters. He has only himself to blame."
