Brampton manager Wayne Ambler has praised his players for turning a miserable start into a memorable season.
The local lads picked up just one point in their opening eight Kershaw Premier Division games – a run which suggested they might face a fight for Cambs League top-flight survival.
But Brampton, who also lifted the Hunts Intermediate Cup, have transformed their campaign with a series of fine results to leave themselves only two points off a top-six spot with two games to go.
Ambler said: “We’re probably just going to run out of games to squeeze into the top six, but I’m still absolutely delighted with how the lads have performed.
“We had a terrible start to the season, but we turned it around and hopefully the players will all stick around for next season.

“We’ve made progress in terms of the amount of points we’ve picked up and the challenge is to ensure we keep moving forward.
“Availability has been really good and the lads have all done what has been asked of them.

“If we can pick up another couple of signings for next season, then who knows?”
Ambler’s men have been scoring for fun of late, slamming in 18 goals in their past four games.
Three of those have ended in victories, including a 4-1 thumping of Cambridge City Reserves last Saturday when Danny Cain struck twice. Olly Vale and Aaron Wootton hit the other goals.
Brampton face a tasty derby clash against fourth-placed Eaton Socon this Saturday.
