Pinchbeck United manager Tom Roberts reflected on a historic win as they remain on course for a quadruple.

They have already picked up the Spalding Sunday League’s Knockout Cup and John Chappell Shield while a 100 per cent record makes them almost certain to retain the championship.

Roberts admitted that any nerves were settled by Josh Ford’s double just before the break against Thurlby United in the Lincolnshire FA Sunday Cup final at Sincil Bank.

He said: “Once we got those goals we could settle down.

“If Tommy Treacher meant to score like that for the first goal then fair play to him.

“We needed an early goal but it went the way you would expect in a cup final with 100 per cent commitment and full-on action.

“Credit to Thurlby but it killed the game when we got our second and third goals. Josh’s record of 57 goals this season speaks for itself.”
