Peterborough Northern Star Ladies begin their bid for promotion tonight (September 6).

They’ll be looking for a winning start to the campaign when entertaining Kettering in their opening East Midlands Women’s League Premier Division fixture at the Branch Bros Stadium at Chestnut Avenue (kick-of 7.45pm).

Star, managed by Dean Steward, finished fourth in the table last season, just four points off a promotion place, and they won the League Cup and the Northants County Cup.

This time round they’re setting their sights on the treble - a cup double and promotion back to the FA Women’s Premier League.

They played at that level two seasons ago and are seeking a return to Step 2.
