Eynesbury Rovers followed up their Hunts Senior Cup success by enjoying a winning end to the United Counties League Premier Division season yesterday.

Mark Ducket’s men, who captured the county crown in midweek, beat Desborough 2-0 at Hall Road to secure a fifth-placed finish – one position better than they managed in the previous campaign.

Jordan Brown found the net at opposite ends of the first half in the fourth and 40th minutes. His brace helped Rovers to a club-record tally of 119 league goals this season.

Huntingdon ended the Premier Division campaign 10 points adrift at the bottom of the table.

Mark Langillie and James Seymour hit the goals as Town went down 3-2 at Leicester Nirvana in their final fixture yesterday.
