Wapping are mid-table in the East Conference, a division below City who are currently bottom of Division One North.

City of Peterborough seconds claimed just a second win of their East Premier Division season, 4-2 over Saffron Walden last Saturday. Former National League player Gareth Andrew, Zak Scotting, first-team regular Ben Newman and Henry Ricketts scored the City goals at Bretton Gate.

City of Peterborough Ladies claimed an excellent East Premier Division point from a 1-1 draw at leaders Bishop’s Stortford last weekend. Jess Broadway struck a second-half equaliser for City against a team that had won eight of their previous nine league games.
