Netherton United bounced back from Saturday’s shock PFA Senior Cup defeat by Warboys to reach the semi-finals of the Peterborough League’s President’s Shield competition last night (January 27).
They beat Premier League rivals Whittlesey Athletic 5-0 at The Grange with Lee Clementson leading the way with a hat-trick. His goals came on 12, 57 and 89 minutes.
Tom Flatters also netted with a fluke on 55 minutes and Jezz Goldson-Williams got their fifth goal on 84 minutes.
It was a pretty even game until Flatters’ fluke.
Netherton will now meet Moulton Harrox in the semi-finals.
Manager Jon Harrison said it was the perfect response to Saturday’s 4-0 defeaat by Warboys.
