Brampton Spartans Red Under 17s waved a glorious goodbye by lifting a trophy in their final match.

The local lads claimed a 4-1 extra-time success over previously unbeaten and higher-level opponents Comberton Crusaders in the recent Cambridge & District Colts League Knockout Cup.

Dougie Reynolds fired Brampton ahead in the first half and their goal led a charmed life with the woodwork coming to their rescue on several occasions to preserve the advantage.

Comberton did eventually level and Brampton were reliant on a fine save from goalkeeper Alex Connor to ensure the game went into an additional half-an-hour.

Once there the Spartans took command.
