There was disappointment for top women’s clubs Peterborough Northern Star Ladies and Peterborough United Ladies as the competitions they are involved in were declared null and void for the 2020-21 season earlier this year with no promotions or relegations

Peterborough Northern Star had just reached the top of the Eastern Region Women’s Premier Division with six wins from eight matches.

Posh were top of the East Midlands Premier Division at the time of the abandonment having won four of their first six fixtures.

That’s two seasons in a row when both clubs have seen promising chances of promotion ruined by the coronavirus crisis.
