Nether­ton are still in the hunt for four tro­phies

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

FREE-SCOR­ING Nether­ton United will be chas­ing hon­ours on four fronts in a hec­tic 2012.

The city lads en­sured the fate of the Cuff League cham­pi­onship in the Peter­bor­ough Sun­day Af­ter­noon League is in their hands af­ter con­demn­ing ti­tle ri­vals PIS to a first de­feat of the sea­son.

Marco De Co­tis’ men dished out a 9-3 drub­bing on Sun­day in a match played on the new 3G sur­face down atthe Grange.

Vic­tory in their three re­main­ing games - against PIS, Hal­cyon and NENS - will guar­an­tee a sec­ond ti­tle in three years of se­nior foot­ball . . . and there’s a whole lot more on the agenda as well.

Nether­ton, who have slammed in 106 goals in 14 games so far this term, have in­ter­est in three cup com­pe­ti­tions with the Northants Sun­day Vase be­ing their top tar­get.

De Co­tis said: “The aim was to be in a good po­si­tion in the league at Christ­mas and still be in­volved in all the cup com­pe­ti­tions. “We’ve man­aged to do that and hope­fully we can com­plete the sec­ond half of the job by win­ning some sil­ver­ware in the sec­ond half of the sea­son.

“Win­ning an­other league ti­tle would be great and we know that is cer­tain to hap­pen if we can win our last three games, but the lads would re­ally love to go all the way in the Northants Cup.

“That’s their big­gest am­bi­tion af­ter we lost in the fi­nal at Un­der 18 level and reached the semi-fi­nals of the Vase last sea­son.”

Nether­ton’s goals on Sun­day ar­rived from Isaak Ben­nett (2), Adam Scott, Ben Cullen, Jack Wright, Josh Bell, Lee Cle­mentson, Lewis Stone and Rob Dixon.
