March Town Ladies and March Soccer School both brought trophies back to Fenland after winning their respective competitions.

The ladies entered two teams – blues and yellows – and after winning their early knock-out ties, the sides met in the last four of the competition.

The match went to penalties but the blues triumphed via spot kicks, before going on to clinch the trophy from the spot once again after drawing with Kirkley & Pakefield in a tense showdown.

Goalkeeper Tori Sharpe went from saving the kicks to netting them and hit the decisive penalty as the Hares lifted the trophy for the second straight year.

And in the younger age groups, March Soccer Schools under 12s clinched that title – their second after winning the Hereward Cup in March.
