The two sides won their way through to the Peterborough League’s showpiece final in contrasting styles at the weekend.

Netherton cruised to a 5-0 win over Division One team Peterborough Polonia FC - all their goals coming in the second half - while Moulton Harrox saw off Premier Division opponents Whittlesey Athletic 4-3 in a penalty shoot-out after their semi-final ended at 2-2.

A big crowd turned up at The Grange and Netherton boss Jon Harrison said: “The atmosphere was amazing. There were over 150 there. The boys did everything asked of them today. It was a great performance, especially in the second half and there were stand-out performances from Callum Madigan, Ash Jackson, Mark Baines, Dan Fountain, Jack Barron and Chris Hansford.”
