WEEKEND PREVIEW: Relegation decider for Peterborough Town team
Peterborough Town complete their season this weekend with home games against Wellingborough Town in the Northants Premier Division tomorrow (September 17) and Market Deeping in Rutland Division One on Sunday (September 18).
Town can still clinch a top two finish in the Northants Premier Division for the fifth season in a row, but the club could be distracted by the plight of their second team in Division One.
The city side are two places and four points above the relegation zone ahead of their final match which is at next-to-bottom East Haddon.
Town seconds haven’t won since June 25, a run of 11 matches.
Town’s senior side will finish second if they beat relegated Wellingborough and Finedon lose badly at champions Old Northamptonians.
Division Two rivals Baston and Freiston square off in the South Lincs League Cup Final at Bourne CC on Sunday.
It’s a 40-over game at the Abbey Lawns starting at 1pm.
Burghley Park will win promotion from Rutland Division Three by picking up three points from the visit of lowly Long Sutton.
