Pinchbeck United are going up in their first-ever season in the ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League.

The Knights’ promotion was finally confirmed as they beat second-placed Potton United 2-1 at the Sir Halley Stewart Field.

Aaron Eyett put Pinchbeck ahead on 33 minutes but Danny Webb levelled in the second half.

However, with seven minutes left, top scorer Ollie Maltby got the final touch following Andrew Tidswell’s free-kick.

Pinchbeck’s squad and management celebrated at the final whistle and they will be crowned Division One champions with one more point.

They are away to Thrapston Town on Tuesday night.

Meanwhile, Bourne Town beat 10-man Buckingham Town 3-2 at Abbey Lawn.

Zak Munton, Dan Schiavi and Gav Cooke (penalty) were on target for the Wakes.
