PRIORY U10L wrapped up a perfect season with a 4-0 over Priory C, making it 16 wins from 16 games. Both teams competed well, but Priory L just had the edge, and their superior finishing saw them run out victors. The goals came from Josh Unwin, who hit a hat-trick, and Matthew Law.

CLINICAL finishing saw St Ives Whites to a 9-1 win over Bluntisham White that was closer than the scoreline suggested.
