Harvey Henderson, Leo Brando, Sam Fielding and Cameron Hodnett scored for Netherton with Ryley Nicholson-Barfoot on target for Yaxley in normal time.

Netherton will start as favourites having finished joint top of the Midlands Junior Premier League, five points ahead of third-placed Yaxley.

Netherton, who took four points from two league matches against Yaxley, went on to lose to Dereham 1-0 in a play-off for the title at the Grange so they won’t want any more home disappointments.
