FOOTBALL: Moulton Harrox aim to finish on a high
Moulton Harrox are aiming to add two more trophies at the end of another successful season.
The first team will take on Netherton United tonight in the PFA Senior Cup final at Peterborough United’s ABAX Stadium.
Moulton’s reserves meet Stamford Belvedere in the PFA Challenge Cup final at Yaxley tomorrow. Both games will kick off at 8pm.
Moulton finished six points behind Netherton at the top of the ChromaSport & Trophies Peterborough and District League.
Assistant manager Paul Crowson said: “They are our bogey side but we’ll be doing our best to beat them.
“We’ve met three times this season and at least the results are getting better!
“Netherton won 6-1 in the President Premier Shield at the end of February.
“Then we played twice in a few days in April which proved the difference between us in the league table.
“We gave them too much respect in the away game but they scored three times in the final 15 minutes.
“We lost 2-1 at home to a rather dubious second goal which means Netherton are the only team to beat us at Broad Lane this season.
“We are looking forward to tonight’s final and, overall, the club have done very well considering that we don’t pay the players.
“The reserves didn’t lose a game in Division One to retain the title.
“Last weekend they won the Chairman Championship Shield final against Wittering Harriers.
“Obviously, they can’t get promoted because the first team are in the top flight but those players would not look out of place.”
Martin Sandall (2), Declan Earth and substitute Ryan Wheeler were on target for the reserves.
Moulton completed their Premier Division campaign with a 2-0 home win against Stamford Lions thanks to goals from Ian Bradbury and Louis Steadman.
Bobby Patterson is serving a three-match ban for his red card in the Lincolnshire FA Junior Cup final win against Coningsby.
Ashley Coddington is also missing from the heart of Molulton's defence.
Squad: Wilding, Bradbury, Cawthorne, Earth, Farrell, Groves, Johnson, King, Kisla, Lambe-Hyner, Maddison, McGuire, Parry, Steadman, Townsend, Watkin.
