Lord Protector lift trophy
Sunday side follow up on league success with Joe Mansfield Cup triumph
SUNDAY League kings Lord Protector capped a phenomenal campaign by smashing New Inn 5-0 to lift the Joe Mansfield Cup.
Jamie Blackwell and Mark Browne bagged a brace apiece while Ben Squires also scored at Jubilee Park to secure a league and cup double.
It followed on from their triumphant championship-winning season in the St Neots & District Sunday League, which secured them back-to-back titles having reigned supreme in Division One the season before.
Club secretary Bill Small said: “We’re delighted with how we’ve done this season and winning back-to-back titles is something that hasn’t been achieved for some considerable period of time.”
