Wonderful Wyberton enjoyed a fantastic final week of the season to seal a fantastic record of 22 wins out of 22 as they romped away with the Boston League premier division.

They started the week with a 5-1 home win against Billinghay Athletic, with striker Dan White hitting a hat-trick while Mark Lovelace and Curtis Revell were also on target.

A potentially difficult away trip to Swineshead, who were hoping to be confirmed as runners-up, followed, but the visitors were in no mood to relinquish their 100 per cent record and won 4-2, with scorers Tyrone Chase, Mark Thompson, Nicky Syndercombe and an own goal.

Kirton Town and Old Leake were involved in a ten-goal thriller at Graves Park, with the visitors snatching two late goals to save the day.

They were locked 2-2 at half time before the home side got their noses in front to lead 5-3. A controversial penalty got the visitors back into the game and they salvaged a point with a late equaliser.

Fosdyke needed to win their final game against Nelson by three goals to claim second place in division two. Anything less and Sutterton would be runners-up.

Fosdyke surged into a two-goal lead through a Tom Watson penalty and James Munn. However, Nelson battled back to make it 2-2 after the break. Veteran Marv Jolly made it 3-2, only for Nelson to equalise again.

With time running out, Nicky De Vries blasted the ball home and then the jubilant Jolly thundered in a header to make it 5-3.

With the goal difference now the same as Sutterton’s, the fact that Fosdyke had scored one more goal meant they sealed the runners-up spot.

nHolbeach United U12 completed the league and cup double after a hard-earned victory against old rivals Leverington.

Harry Machin broke clear to coolly fire past the keeper to give Holbeach a 1-0 lead late in the first half.

Leverington equalised after the break and soon took the lead before man-of-the-match Liam Sandall was released to thump home an equaliser. Sandall rifled home another but a late equaliser forced extra time.

Leverington led again in the extra period, but two more Sandall goals clinched the cup for the young Tigers.

nSpalding United U13 lost their final game of the season 2-1 to Deeping Claret.

The young Tulips led at the break through Samuel East, but Deeping came out fighting in the second half and soon levelled.

Both teams battled well to try to get the win but it was Deeping who were victorious.
