It’s three wins in a row in 2017 for City of Peterborough Ladies.
Goals from player-of-the-match Anna Faux and Jeorgia Carr secured an impressive 2-1 win at Harleston Magpies seconds yesterday (January 28) to secure second spot in East Division One North for another week at least.
Faux opened the scoring in the first-half, but the home side equalised soon after the re-start against the run of play.
But a fine run and pass from Robyn Gribble enabled Carr to go round the home ‘keeper and fire into an empty net to seal a deserved victory.
City now have 32 points and sit five points behind Cambridge City and one point ahead of Dereham, both these teams having a game in hand.
City of Peterborough men gained ground on East Premier A Division leaders Old Loughtonians yesterday. While City were beating bottom club Chelmsford 4-0, Old Loughts were being held to a 2-2 draw by Bedford.
City are now one point off the top with two games in hand. A report will appear here tomorrow (January 30).
