Godmanchester Rovers’ battle for a runners-up finish has gone down to the final day of the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division season.

The local lads were beaten 3-0 by runaway champions Norwich United at Bearscroft Lane last night (Wednesday) in their penultimate league fixture.

Rovers remain second in the standings ahead of the visit of Hadleigh on Saturday. They have a one-point cushion over third-placed Stanway who face Thetford in their final fixture.

Rovers co-boss Nev Nania said: “It goes without saying we would have liked to have had second place wrapped up sooner, but we are still in a good position.

“Stanway need to win their final game to have any hope of finishing above us as we have a vastly superior goal difference, but we’re only focusing on our own game.

“We are guaranteed the club’s best-ever finish at this level and would like to secure it in style with a win.”

Frontman James Hall, who left Rovers for higher-level St Ives Town during the season, was drafted back in for the midweek loss against table-toppers Norwich United.
