There was a cracking end to the Peterborough Junior Alliance League cup final programme at Whittlesey over the weekend as a dozen teams battled it out in the younger age groups at Stonald Field.
And club secretary Hazel Burgess was quick to point out how well behaved all the players and spectators were.
She said: “We had two brilliant days of cup finals which were a credit to the clubs involved and to the Junior Alliance League.
“Respect at every game was at its highest from managers to spectators with teams applauding each other when the presentation of trophies was being made.”
Three of the six finals were decied on penalty shoot-outs with Netherton pipping Stamford Young Daniels White 4-3 on spot-kicks in the Under 10 Hereward Cup final, Pinchbeck outshooting One Touch 4-1 in the Under 10 League Cup decider and Deeping Rangers Claret winning the Under 11 League Cup shoot-out against Peterborough Polonia 4-2.
Biggest winners of the day were Peterborough Northern Star Under 9s. They beat Deeping Rangers Blue 4-0 in the Under 9 League Cup final thanks in the main to a hat-trick by Jason James Bointon.
n On the league front, the Under 12 Division Four title race was decided on Sunday on a walkover win.
Wisbech St Mary Purple were awarded the three points when FC Peterborough were unable to fulfuil the one outstanding fixture and that saw them pip Peterborough Thorpe Wood Rangers to the title.
Stamford Red clinched runners-up spot behind Netherton in Under 13 Divisio n One when they beat Spalding Blue 4-1 in the final game.
