Netherton United’s domination of the Sunday scene continued as they wrapped up their fifth Premier Division title in a row last weekend.
Netherton required a point from their two remaining games to retain their status as Peterborough Sunday Morning League top dogs.
Both matches were against Parkway, the only team who could catch them, but Netherton needed just one attempt as they won 7-4 at PSL thanks to a late flurry of goals.
Parkway were a goal down and a man down after just 20 minutes as combative midfielder Jack Gowler picked up two early yellow cards from leading referee Michael Dunkley.
But the 10-men were 3-2 ahead midway through the second-half before the speedy Netherton forwards took charge.
Roberto Da Silva (2), Tom Randall (2), Adam Scott, Laureano Da Silva and Harry Fitzjohn scored the Netherton goals with Ian Bradbury (2), Tom Staggs and George Edwards replying for Parkway.
Netherton’s success was a proud moment for Josh Moreman who managed the team for the first time and steered them to 13 wins in 14 league matches.
Moreman plays for Kettering Town and as a contracted player is ineligible for Sunday football.
Netherton have flopped on the cup front though as they’ve already been eliminated from the Hereward Elite Cup.
Ploughman, who have finished third in the Premier Division, continue to look strong and they despatched Division One outfit Parkside 8-1 last weekend.
John Regan claimed a hat-trick for Ploughman and there were rare goals for Harrison brothers Lee and Gavin.
Super-quick striker Jermaine Watson bagged a hat-trick as Premier Decorators pipped PIS 4-3 in the same competition
Parkway were last night (Wednesday) taking on Bretton North End in the PFA Sunday Senior Cup Final. A report can be found on www.peterboroughtoday.co.uk.
