Cambridge City secured their Vitality Women’s League, Division One South status with a 0-0 draw against Slough.

It has been a difficult campaign for City as they have lost key players to long-term injuries, Covid and relocations, but they have shown strength in depth and character, with the likes of Kara Kilbourn and Amy Brook stepping up to the first team.

City dominated large periods of the game against second-placed Slough, who were restricted to very few entries into the hosts’ circle.

Lucy Chappel, in the City goal, was not called into action once such was the dominance of the hosts.

Charlotte Rye and Kat Petch shared the BDB Pitmans player-of-the-match honours.

Rye has stepped up this season to be a consistent, reliable defender who breaks down play well and constructs it maturely and Petch has developed substantially since she joined us last season and has been able to carry the ball confidently, confronting players.

The draw was enough to see City finish safely in eighth place, with Harleston Magpies’ 4-4 draw with Canterbury meaning they go into the relegation play-off and Trojans 6-0 defeat to Sevenoaks seeing them relegated.
