The city side needed to beat Ely Crusaders in their final game of the season at the Grange to overhaul Saffron Walden and they managed a 2-1 win to seal top spot by a point.

Netherton also retained their Cambs Women Division One title without dropping a point and the club’s under 14B Division side completed an unbeaten title-winning season with a 6-1 romp against Haddenham. Maddison Parry (2), Elissa Abbott, Eloise Anton, Gabriele Kamoda and Roxanne Munday scored the goals.

Peterborough Northern Star just missed out on adding the Cambs Girls under 18 title to their cup success at the same level. Star needed to win both games of a double header fixture at title rivals Cambridge City to sneak into first place, but they lost 2-0 twice to finish second, nine points behind City.
