The season started strongly with a win away up north against Northumbria ending 2-1, setting the team up for a good season. The next fixture ended in a 1-1 draw against Loughborough who have now completed all 10 fixtures sitting in second place in the league table, the results of this weeks fixture will see them either retaining that spot or falling into 3rd. The fixture following this was another home match where NTU secured a well deserved 1-0 win over Durham. The fourth fixture of the season was the first clash between NTU and Stirling, this now obviously crucial game saw NTU win away to the Stirling side 1-0. On the back of a big win NTU faced Birmingham at home for the 5th fixture, and in a strong display of what the team is capable of, they secured a 3-0 victory to end the first half of the season.

Sadly the second half of the season started with the Boys in Pink picking up the first and only loss of the season so far against Northumbria, who came to seek revenge following a home loss to NTU in a game which ended 1-0 to Northumbria. NTU picked themselves up and travelled down to Loughborough to secure a 2-0 victory. Despite a strong performance after this NTU could only secure a draw away to Durham ending 1-1. The final game before the final fixture against Stirling was away to Birmingham who NTU previously had beaten 3-0, again the boys pulled out a win despite the away disadvantage to set up a home League Title game against Stirling.
