Polonia had also won the Division Three play-offs 12 months earlier.

Adrian Mizia opened the scoring three minutes into the second-half before Marcin Stelmach scored twice in the next 20 minutes. Spalding replied through Alistair Morgan.

It was tough on Spalding who had finished third in the table, 16 points clear of Polonia who had suffered six points-worth of deductions during the season.

Oakham United Reserves and Glinton & Northborough were promoted automatically.

The Division Three play-off results are the subject of a Peterborough League investigation after it was discovered Bretton North End and Eye United had fielded ineligible players in a tie won 5-0 by Bretton.
