Colts football: Spot-on Saints lift the county crown

Everything pointed to a tight game and that’s exactly how the Hunts Under 14 Cup final turned out.
Near neighbours St Neots Youth & Saints and Priory Parkside arrived at Hall Road, Eynesbury, on Friday night for the county showpiece in possession of identical playing records in Division A of the Cambridge Colts League.
And they remained extremely evenly-matched in a clash which went right down to the wire before Saints prevailed 4-2 from the penalty spot with Cameron Farrow coolly tucking away the decisive kick.
That followed a 1-1 deadlock in which Owen Dunnett had fired them ahead before an unfortunate own goal restored parity.
Both teams then maintained their league title hopes with weekend wins. Callum Irvine and James Parker hit two goals apiece as St Neots saw off Royston Town Hearts 6-1 while an Aaron Hiscock hat-trick helped Priory Parkside bounce back from their final disappointment with a 5-4 win at Cherry Hinton Lions.
In the Hunts Youth League, Huntingdon Rowdies Under 12s wrapped up the Division A title by beating the only team who could have pipped them to the crown. Two Scott Gray goals and other strikes from Joe Cobb, Luke Fox and Archie Rickson secured a 5-0 success at Warboys.
Eynesbury have made two successful raids on St Ives Rangers in the space of four days in that division.
