Needingworth United lifted the first piece of county silverware of the season.

Brett Swales' men triumphed in the Hunts Lower Junior Cup final on Wednesday night.

The Cambridgeshire County League outfit beat Peterborough & District League opponents Stilton United Reserves 1-0 in a showpiece clash staged at Jubilee Park in Huntingdon.

Steve Beeson provided the only goal on the stroke of half-time as Needingworth completed the first part of a potential honours treble.

Swales' men are also through to the final of the Reg Haigh & Arthur Peck Cup later this month and are chasing the Division 4B title.
