It’s a case of three down and three to go for Sunday stars Alconbury.

Chris Kirschner’s undefeated side have already completed an honours treble by following up Hunts Sunday League title success with two knockout trophies.

They won the Hunts Sunday Cup last Wednesday when an Adam Rothery brace and a Matt Claxton strike earned a 3-0 victory against Peterborough side Cardea.

And they got their hands on more silverware yesterday (Sunday) when beating The Dragoon 2-0 in the Ernie Childs Cup showpiece thanks to goals from Alex Norman and Michael Mackrell.

“We’ve got a decent side and we’ve had a very good season,” said Kirschner.
