The final of the Peterborough League’s President Premier Shield promises to be a spicy South Holland derby.

Moulton Harrox and Pinchbeck United won their semi-finals comfortably and will meet in the end-of-season showpiece at Stamford’s Zeeco Stadium on Friday, May 13.

Moulton looked to have the tougher last-four tie but the unbeaten Premier Division leaders controlled the game from start to finish against Netherton United.

They are the only team to take a point from Moulton in the league this season but Netherton fell behind early to an Ollie Maltby goal and Joe Townsend doubled the lead before the break.

Substitute Ben Allen made it 3-0 in the second half and that’s how it finished.

A blistering first-half display saw Pinchbeck through in their semi-final at AFC Stanground.

They scored four times through Ian Dunn, Tony Edwards, Ashley Murrell and Bradley Murrell to ease into the final.

Bradley Murrell scored with a spectacular free-kick.

Meanwhile, Whittlesey Athletic took advantage of Moulton’s cup commitments to join them on 52 points at the top of the Premier Division table.

Holbeach United Reserves lost 1-0 at Peterborough ICA Sports.

Anthony Graves, Connor Pilbeam, Tom Palmer and Daniel Woods scored in Deeping Rangers Reserves’ 4-2 home win over Sawtry.

Joe Dobson, Jobi Froud and Daniel Morris were the men on target in Langtoft United’s predictable 3-0 win over injury-hit Stilton United.

Vikings manager Ryan Hunnings said: “It was a much better performance – we got back to the levels I know we’re capable of.

“Our defence were brilliant, they gave us a great platform to play from.

“Everyone raised their game, I couldn’t fault anyone.

“It was a great squad performance as our subs also contributed when they came on.

“Although saying that I also feel Morris deserves a special mention. He was on another level, he dominated the game and everything came through him.”

Crowland Town made it three wins out of four with a 1-0 victory at bottom club Riverside. James Ellwood got the second-half winner.
