The Lincolnshire boys were pipped 8-7 by Werrington Athletic in a penalty shoot-out in the Peterborough Youth League KO Cup final last month but made up for the disappointment yesterday.

They were up against big Division One title rivals Peterborough Sports in the PFA Cup final at Yaxley and took the honours 2-1.

They went 2-0 up in the first half with goals by Harvey Wirkowski and Joshua Ling and Sports could only pull one goal back in the second half through substitute Kyall Woods.
