Netherton are still in the hunt for four trophies
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.
