Baston Under 13s took the honours against big rivals Stamford in last night’s (May 15) PFA Cup final at the ABAX Stadium.

They emerged comfortable 3-1 winners to make amends for blowing their Peterborough Junior Alliance League Division One title hopes the previous weekend.

And they achieved victory despite having Alton Strachan sent off after 20 minutes for kicking an opponent.

Beck McCarthy gave them the perfect start, scoring in the first minute, before Will Howarth, son of former Posh player Lee, added two more in the second half.

Charlie Willis scored the Stamford equaliser just before half-time and Baston’s Jamie Allen was voted man-of-the-match.

Baston squad: James Roberts, Oliver Tooth, Jamie Allen, Freddie Fraser, Alton Strachan, Harvey Davis, Lewis Duncan, Keelan Walker, Mapalo Mwansa, Adam Blackbird, Ashley Quince, Harrison Pearce, Will Howarth, Beck McCarthy, Bailey Coe.
