Cambridgeshire Women’s Championship North

So it all comes down to 90 minutes on Sunday in the Cambridgeshire Women’s Championship North, with Ketton Ladies and Wisbech Town Ladies ties at the top of the table on 39 points each having beaten each other once they play for a third and final time in their final game of the season Ketton the hosts this coming Sunday. A home win for Wisbech Town Ladies this Sunday the point awarded against Cardea Ladies who have secured 3rd place in the league. 

Ketton at home were without top scorer Fran Kavanagh as they took on Hungate Rovers Ladies this Sunday. As it was Ketton strong in attack running out comfortable winners to collect the 3 points with a 10-1 win captain Beth Goodman scoring half that tally with 5 to her name, Sascha Smith bagging herself a brace with Danielle Marrison and Lauren McKeever also on the scoresheet. Ketton top on goal difference although whether that is a factor as with last seasons Championship South dead heat I am unsure, a win for either and they are champions.

Also in action on Sunday playing their final game of the season in the Championship North were Pinchbeck United Ladies at home to Wisbech St Mary Ladies contrasting ends to the seasons for both, Wisbech St Mary struggling slipping to the foot of the table.
