Wyberton added the BB Insure Willoughby Cup to their Boston and District League Premier Division title as they brought the curtain down on an amazing season.

Having enjoyed a second successive unbeaten league campaign, winning 22 of their 24 matches, Wyberton were always expected to win and they ran out 3-2 victors.

Ben Jaques fired them ahead and, although Woodhall Spa skipper Jason Cooke equalised, it came as no surprise when Curtis Revell made it 2-1.

Man-of-the-match Curtis Yeatman then made the game safe before Chris Holland’s consolation right at the death.

Wyberton have been in such a class of their own that they have decided to leave the Boston and District League to test themselves in the Lincolnshire League.

But their reserves, managed by Steve Favell – brother-in-law of first-team boss Gary Frost – have also enjoyed an amazing campaign and will take their place in the Premier Division after earning promotion from Division One.

Just like the first team, they enjoyed a league and cup double as the club goes from strength to strength.

Frost, and several of the players, have won the Premier Division title three years in a row.

They won the title with Tavern Colts in 2011/12 which led to Frost being asked to take over the helm at Wyberton.

Many of the players followed him and they romped to the title in his first season without dropping a point.

Frost said: “It’s been two excellent years. This season hasn’t gone quite as well as we’ve only done the double whereas last season we did the treble and won every game.

“We need a new challenge, which is why we are changing leagues, and I hope we can again challange for honours.

“I hope to sign some fringe players from Boston United Reserves, Holbeach and Boston Town and hopefully we can keep bringing success to the club.”
