Jeorgia Carr scored the winning goal for City of Peterborough Ladies at Harleston.

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.
