FOOTBALL: We are the champions!
Pinchbeck United picked up the trophy as they were crowned champions.
The Knights confirmed top spot in the ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League Division One thanks to Tuesday night’s 2-2 draw at Thrapston Town.
League chairman John Weeks handed over the silverware to club captain Nick Bishop after the final whistle at Chancery Lane.
Pinchbeck player-boss Ian Dunn said: “It’s a great achievement to win the title.
“We had already celebrated our success on Saturday with a massive win over Potton United and those three points secured promotion.
“We’ve won trophies in the Peterborough and District League but this season we have done it by being the most consistent team.
“We knew we would do well if we put runs together. But we didn’t expect to go 24 games unbeaten!
“We won big games at key times by beating teams who were bang in form. That was probably the biggest factor.
“It wasn’t a very nice way to win it after conceding two goals – but it doesn’t matter. As far as we’re concerned, that’s job done!
“At times it was too easy and we got sloppy in the end. We didn’t do what we have been good at all season.

“We needed a point to take the title and we did that on Tuesday.”
Pinchbeck led 2-0 against 10-man Thrapston but threw away the advantage.
They went ahead though top scorer Ollie Maltby before Danny Wells was dismissed for violent conduct.
Tom Sergeant doubled the lead just before the break but second-half goals by Henry Cade and Cory James earned a point for Thrapston.
