Our Opponents

Peterborough Northern Star Football Club was formed in the early 20th Century as a team for the Northam Brickworks in Eye and the Star Brickworks in Peterborough. In the early 1950s they were renamed as Eye United. They joined the United Counties League in 2003, and in 2005 re-adopted their original name of Peterborough Northern Star area. After being successful several times in UCL Division One, they were promoted to the Premier Division in 2010. Three seasons ago they reached the quarter-final of the FA Vase. The Star club website is here, and they have revised their twitter feed here. Their club colours are white shirts and black shorts, and they are managed by the team of Michael Goode and Darren Jarvis.

Star have had an unusual season in that their form on the road has been far better than that at home, where they have lost 7 games. On the road they have won 8 and only lost 1 game. They beat the Diamonds 3-2 at the Dog & Duck last season – report here, but the Diamonds recorded a 4-1 victory in Dogsthorpe earlier this season – report here.
