Huntingdon Town lifted a piece of silverware last night.
Bob Warby’s side beat a Cambridge City reserve outfit 3-0 to win the Mayor’s Cup at Jubilee Park.
Jordan Brockett struck twice and new signing Addie Staffieri hit the other goal as Town continued a pleasing pre-season.
They have won all three summer friendlies so far as they prepare for the new United Counties League Premier Division after receiving a relegation reprieve.
St Ives Town and St Neots Town both enjoyed smooth successes against lower-level opponents on Tuesday night.

James Hall needed only two minutes to fire them ahead and doubled his tally 17 minutes later.
Haverhill halved their arrears only 11 seconds after the break, but the hosts soon extended their advantage with three substitutes – Tom Wood, Dan Hobbs and Dubi Ogbonna – all getting their names on the scoresheet.
Godmanchester Rovers went down 2-0 to higher-level Soham Town Rangers.
