March Town Ladies confirmed second place in the S-Tech North League thanks to a narrow 1-0 success over Wisbech St Mary - and also welcomed back skipper Jade Pointer after the star was hit by a car only two months ago.
In their final league encounter of the season, the two sides played out a cagey but entertaining first half, with the Hares’ defensive line keeping the hosts at bay.
Adele Munday, who has been in fine form for March this term, netted the decisive strike 20 minutes from time, when she arrowed a shot in off the crossbar.
The Hares were also buoyed by the return of skipper Pointer, who only months ago was fighting for her life after being hit by a car.
March’s manager, Gary Davis, was delighted to see Pointer return to the pitch just two months after such a life-changing injury.
He said: “It was fantastic to see our skipper back and playing the sport she loves for the team she loves. Jade is a great example to us all, about how to get on with life and not let setbacks, however major, bring you down.
“Some of the players were worried about her before the game, but it was like she was never away.
