The Priory Parkside Black Under 14 team celebrate their Hunts Cup success.

Priory Parkside Black made the most of their second chance to lift the Hunts Under 14 Cup on Friday night.

Jeff Hill’s lads had suffered penalty shoot-out heartbreak when the final was initially staged in April, but a replay was ordered after it emerged opponents St Neots Youth & Saints Sky fielded an ineligible player.

Priory made the breakthrough in the re-staging at Jubilee Park in Huntingdon when captain Murphy Culkin struck from an acute angle.

Callum Irvine fired St Neots level and they were only denied a second goal by the woodwork.

The match again looked destined to go to penalties until Priory grabbed a dramatic winner. Toby Hill headed in a late corner to clinch trophy glory and sink a Saints team who had pipped them to title glory in the Cambridge Colts League.
