LATEST NEWS: Long wait for glory for City of Peterborough, Bourne Deeping Ladies clinch the title in style with a 17-goal salvo!

City of Peterborough will have to wait until April 14 to confirm their return to the National League.

Bourne Deeping Ladies celebrate their title success in East Division Three North West.

City need to win their final game at lowly Chelmsford to clinch the East Premier A Division title and a National League place for the first time in five years.

City were supposed to travel to Chelmsford last Sunday (March 18), but were beaten back by the weather.

There’s a slim chance City could clinch the title this Sunday (March 25) without playing, but that would require sole challengers St Albans to lose at home to relegation-threatened Spalding. Spalding have three games in which to make up three points on fellow strugglers Ipswich, but they also have a tough game on Saturday, at home to Harleston.
