 That wraps up another edition of The Tuesday Round-Up. Nine already! Mentioned as many goal scorers as I could getting everything rounded up is a task in itself, if anyone wants to let me know how their game at the weekend went, I’m always keen to hear your thoughts and of course if you scored a goal and want a mention tell me about it. Well into November now so postponements I fear will be a regular feature. Until the next edition thanks for reading.

    Since when has Peterborough not been in East Anglia?!. You mention Deeping Diamonds – Deeping is 8 miles north of Peterborough!!

      Which Peterborough side are you referring to? At the moment the website focuses on the women’s leagues in East Anglia of which Deeping Diamonds Ladies play in the Cambridgeshire Women’s Premiership. I am aware women’s sides playing in Peterborough and the surrounding area have the option to play in both the FAWPL Midlands Division One and East Midlands Regional Leagues of which Peterborough Northern Star and Riverside Rovers Ladies do and get regular coverage via the websites twitter feed. Peterborough United Ladies play in the Northamptonshire Women’s County League and they are getting overlooked so will try and get them mentioned via twitter more regularly. Thanks for your comment
