Tom Panton scored the title-clinching goal for Moulton Harrox.

The South Lincs club completed a hat-trick of title wins by drawing 1-1 at home to Whittlesey Athletic at Broad Lane. Harrox also finished top in in 2012-13 and 2015-16.

It was hard work for them yesterday as they finished the match with 10 men after Danny Maddison’s red card for foul and abusive language towards an assistant referee.

Bizarrely that incident took place in the aftermath of a Moulton equaliser from Tom Panton. Maddison took exception to a flag for offside which was overruled by referee James Truman.
