Eunice Huntingdon have completed an honours double . . . and now they can make it a treble.

The Peterborough & District League Division Four champions added the League Shield to their collection with victory in the final last Saturday.

They beat league runners-up Stamford Lions A 5-2 in a showpiece clash staged at the Nene Valley Community Centre in Peterborough.

Marcin Dobrzanski hit an equaliser after Eunice had fallen behind early on. Goalkeeper Filip Majewski then conceded and saved a Lions penalty.

An own goal put Eunice ahead before half-time. A Jakub Sulima brace and a Krzysztof Chojak strike then sealed victory in the second period.
