Abbey Lawn

The Posh Women welcome fellow promotion hopefuls Loughborough Lightening to Abbey Lawn on Sunday afternoon (2pm).

The Peterborough United Women are enjoying an excellent campaign and as they enter the home straight of the campaign, they are still competing for the one promotion spot out of the FAWNL Division One Midlands ahead of a huge clash with fellow promotion challengers Loughborough Lightening on Sunday at Abbey Lawn, Bourne (2pm). 

Dan Lawlor’s side are one of four clubs who have a chance of finishing as Champions with Sporting Khalsa, Boldmere St Michaels and Loughborough Lightening all vying for top spot. Posh have games in hand on the rest but go into the clash with Lightening in good form following a 6-1 victory over Notts County last time out.  

There will be plenty of entertainment at Abbey Lawn ahead of kick-off with a DJ getting supporters hyped for kick-off, inflatable boom sticks distributed to help create a noisy atmosphere and Women’s mascot Lori will also be in attendance. There will also be half-time entertainment. 

Women’s General Manager Sam Winch said: “The league is incredibly tight at the top of the division and we are very much in the mix, but Sunday’s game with Loughborough Lightening is a big game for us because of the respective positions in the table. 

“The attendances at Abbey Lawn have been excellent throughout the campaign and we know that our supporters can make a huge difference to the team, so we are looking forward to Sunday and hope that those that have often thought about coming down to support, can join us and enjoy an entertaining afternoon. 

“We have a DJ thanks to Nene Valley Entertainments, boom sticks, the players will enter the pitch through a smoke-filled entrance with blue strobe lighting plus plenty more entertainment to be announced, so it is a great time to come down and enjoy an afternoon with us. I have been in the role for only a short time, but there is so much positivity around the club and we have plenty of new ideas and incentives to share with you all.”

Tickets are priced at £5 for adults, £4 for seniors, £3 for under 18s and free for under 12s. Supporters can pay by cash or card on the game.
