There was double delight for Netherton United yesterday (April 29) on the latest Peterborough Junior Alliance League Cup Final day.
They won two of the three finals played at Chestnut Avenue with the club’s high-flying Under 14 team romping to a massive 9-0 victory against Whittlesey Juniors Blue in the League Cup decider.
The other Netherton win came in the Under 12 League Cup final but this one was much closer. Here Netherton Wagtails won on a penalty shoot-out against Deeping Rangers Clarets.
In the third cup final - for the Under 14 Hereward Cup - there was a 5-0 win for Malborne Rangers against Glinton and Northborough Amber.
Simon Roberts’ crack Netherton Under 14 side, runaway Division One champions with a 100 per cent record, were as expected far too strong for second-placed Whittlesey Blue and cruised to the league and cup double with goals by Lewis Leeson (4), Lukas Vaickelionis (2) Jakub Nowicki, Makomborero Gromba and man-of-the-match Danyaal Younus.
The Wagtails’ scorer in a 1-1 draw with Deeping Clarets was Danny White, who also picked up the man-of-the-match award. George Frost netted for Deeping and the penalty shoot-out was won 3-2 by the Netherton lads.
