Following a late pitch inspection on Sunday morning, the Ladies match at AFC Dunstable was called off due to a waterlogged pitch.
Newmarket Town 4 : 2 Cambridge City (Friendly)
The Ladies Development team's home league match against the University suffered the same fate as the Ladies First team fixture, however, a couple of quick phone calls and the management team had soon arranged a trip to the 3g surfaced Bloorie.com stadium to play Newmarket Town Ladies in a friendly. The home side currently play in the Eastern Region Women's Division One League, which is where City hope to be next season, so it was an ideal test for the young Lilywhites. The first half certainly belonged to Newmarket and they went in at half time with a deserved lead. The second period was much more even though with the visitors starting to ask more questions of the home defence. The hosts eventually ran out 4 : 2 winners, which was probably a fair result, but more importantly, the match provided a much needed run out for both sides.
The scorers for City: Yas Crowe and Anna Goggin

Cambridge City 15 : 2 Linton Aztecs
City reaffirmed their intentions for the season with an emphatic win over Linton and made sure they remain in top spot with a much greater goal difference over second placed Glinton - not to mention three games in hand. Goal scoring machine Issy Bryant grabbed herself a 'double-haul' (8), whilst Freya Goddard and Freya Standing each chipped in with a brace. The remaining three goals came from Aino Turunen, Rose Hastings and Amie Fullwood. City kept the pressure on the visitors right until the very end, which just shows how motivated the team are. Katie Prior deservedly picked up the Player of the Match award.

Coton 6 : 3 Cambridge City

Despite taking an early lead, City suffered an unexpected loss to local rivals Coton at Fitzwilliam College sports ground on Saturday morning. This clash was a coming together of two very talented sides - both with an eye on the league title. The victory for the home side means that they have now lessened the gap between them and City to six points, with three games in hand. This win will no doubt be a big boost for Coton, however, City are still very much in with a shout. Providing both teams win all their remaining matches against other teams in the league, City will need to win the reverse home league fixture against Coton to force a play off match. Interesting times ahead. Well done Coton, a deserved victory for you on Saturday.
The scorers for City: Ruby Austin (x2) and Ruby Want
Milton Colts 0 : 2 Cambridge City
City made the short trip to blustery Milton on Saturday morning. A great team effort was rewarded with three league points, thanks to a goal apiece from Madison Shanks and Isobel Hayes. The City defence worked hard and was not breached. The Player of the Match award went to Ellie Whitehead.
Histon Hornets 1 : 2 Cambridge City
With a depleted squad and only seven under 12s available, we had to call on the under 11s squad to help out and two girls duly stepped up, along with Bella Axelsson from the under 13s (who currently plays up a year). This was a tough league game against an organised Histon side. It took 25 minutes for City to finally break the deadlock when Bella put City in front. Bella found the net again in the second half, along with Yasmin Jackson who also scored. Our incredible 'clean sheet run' finally came to an end after a nice finish from a Histon player, but the girls stood firm to claim an important victory against a very good Histon side.
Cambridge City v Coton
The City youngsters played hosts to Coton at Girton recreation field on a cold Saturday morning. Considering that this is the first season playing football for most of the girls, they never cease to amaze. Knowledge of the game, effort, determination, not to mention some lovely examples of skill. The girls from both teams put on a great display of football. In theory, at this level, it is non competitive (that is why we don't publish results) but you are invited to take a look at the photo below. Look at their faces! Well done to both teams - superb.
Both girls show real determination
