It was a case of third time lucky as Sutton Bridge lifted the Spalding Sunday League KO Cup.

It was the club’s third cup final in eight days and they finally got their hands on some silverware after missing out in the Inter-Services Cup and Mont Pell Trophy.

They defeated Gosberton 2-0 at the Sir Halley Stewart Playing Field.

Gosberton had the best of the early exchanges, hitting the woodwork after just a minute.

As the game went on Sutton Bridge got on top and capitalised by scoring through skipper Ben Partridge.

Gosberton also started the second half strongly and with both teams creating chances the result was still in doubt until Matthew Eaton scored to make it safe for The Bridge.

Goalkeeper Daniel Smith came to Bridge’s rescue on a couple of occasions to keep the score at 2-0 and help himself to the Man-of -the-Match award.
