Disappointed manager Mark Baines has branded Stilton’s snub from the Peterborough League representative team as ‘a massive slap in the face’.

The Premier Division surprise packages didn’t have a player selected for the league party despite occupying a top-six position for most of the season.

Baines believes he has several worthy contenders and is upset they have been overlooked by rep team chief Darren Fogg.

Baines said: “I really don’t see how we have ended up without a single player in the rep squad. It is a massive slap in the face.

“We are through to a county cup final and we could go third in the table if we win our games in hand.

“We’ve had a run of six games without conceding a goal and have two strikers into double-figures.

“There is not a better left-back in the league than Jason Dunn and my right-back Christian Gordon is as pacy and powerful as anyone around here.

“Herbie Panting has been excellent in midfield and Liam Rodden and Craig Smith up front can rip teams apart.

“The lads are all gutted for each other that they have been overlooked and the most disappointing thing is that ‘Foggy’ didn’t even come to watch us play.”
