Town joint manager Jez Hall said: "We were really pleased with the victory and we have done well to keep Yaxley's dangerous strikers quiet on four occasions.

"We are slightly disappointed with our final league position but what makes up for it are the potential three cup finals coming up.

"Rob Mackney, Will Fordham, Jason King and Dan Pilsworth have been outstanding for us all season."
