Eastern Region Women's League - Premier Division.

Peterborough Northern Star 2 : 5 Cambridge City

The respect pre-match handshake signalled the start of the new season

Cambridge City came out on top in their opening league game of the season with a hard fought away win at Peterborough Northern Star. Despite the visitors starting with three new signings and a difficult, uncut pitch to contend with, it was City who settled into the game more quickly and were putting the hosts under pressure early on, creating a couple of half-chances. Peterborough grew into the game as the half progressed and the match gradually became more open with opportunities at both ends. Following a quick counter attack, the home side took the lead after a superb double save by City keeper Tee Mhundury was not enough to prevent the ball falling to a PNS striker at close range. It didn’t take long though for City to respond and they were back on level terms minutes later after a fine run and finish from Laura Mills.

New signing from March Town, Shannon Shaw, marked an impressive debut, finding the top left hand corner with a cracking strike from long range to put the Lilywhites in front and the advantage was further extended from the penalty spot when Carla Penny scored after Mills was tripped in the box. The first half finished 3-1 to the visitors.

The Lilywhites could have made it four soon after the break when they were awarded another penalty, but this time Grace Stanley’s effort was saved by the home keeper and it looked like the missed opportunity could be costly as Peterborough grabbed a second shortly afterwards with a well struck free kick. However, Stanley was able to make up for the penalty miss when she grabbed herself a quick fire brace, cutting in from the left and curling in a right foot shot on both occasions to secure a well deserved away victory for City.

Next up for the Ladies is an FA Cup preliminary round match at Newmarket on Sunday 26th August 3-00pm K.O.


Come and make new friends and play football too

Cambridge City Ladies and Girls FC are delighted to announce, that from Friday September 14th, in conjunction with the FA, they will again be running their very successful weekly 'SSE Wildcats' football sessions for girls aged 5 - 11.
