Milton Keynes City Ladies are on course to win the Thames Valley Counties League crown at the first attempt after a 6-2 win over Headington.

Sitting proudly at the top of the Division One table with four games to play, City have won 11 of their 12 fixtures so far this season – a year after they dominated the third tier of the league.

So impressive were they in their Division Three title win last season, that the City ladies were promoted two divisions.

Their success, winning all 12 league games, also led to a second City side taking to the field in Division Two North.

The young City Diamonds are still just finding their feet, but the first-team continue to go from strength to strength, currently one point ahead of Carterton Town, but with two games in hand.

And with the league title almost in the bag, City could make it a double on Sunday when they take on Wycombe in the League Cup final.

“We’ve only lost one game in two the seasons we’ve been going, but it’s really annoyed us,” said City captain Laura Geyton.

“That was to Carterton in March – our first match back after the bad weather. But it’s OK because we beat them at their place on the first day of the season.

“Everyone is really looking forward to the final. We have a coach booked to take us and supporters down there, so it should be a good day.

“If we win the league we’ll go up to the Southern Region division and might need more players. So anyone interested should get in touch.”
