Catworth lifted the Hunts Sunday Cup crown – and it could form part of an honours double.

Bert Huff’s men beat Peterborough side ICA Sports 3-2 in the county showpiece staged at Yaxley last Tuesday.

They did the damage in the opening period with Jack Goodall and Alfie Burton striking twice in as many minutes early on.

Aaron Halliday made no mistake when being left with a free header from a corner to extend Catworth’s advantage on the half-hour mark and only a couple of terrific saves from opposition goalkeeper Stuart Afford prevented them going further ahead.

Catworth saw their lead cut by ICA man Jake Sansby’s classy long-range strike midway through the second half and he then created a second goal late on for Jack Briggs.
