Saints are gunning for some revenge tonight
harder for us as we are really an Under 17 team while Netherton are all Under 18s but we have a chance.
“I think we have been unlucky to lose both finals to them and it would be great if we could go there and win the league title at their place.”
But even if they do come up short, Miller is proud of his side’s achievements this season.
He added: “We have reached two cup finals and we have taken the Division One title fight right down to the wire and are yet to lose a league game which is a great effort.
“So even if we don’t win tonight the boys should be proud of their efforts and I am sure next season they will be in an even stronger position to compete for trophies.”
Should Netherton get the point they need they will become the first club in the history of the league to win the Under 18 Division One title for four consecutive seasons. DEEPING Claret clinched the Divisiontwo title without kicking a ball on Sunday.
Having completed their fixtures with a 6-0 win against Holbeach two weeks ago, the Clarets went into the final weekend of the season with a three-point lead over Oundle at the top of the table.
However, if Oundle could beat Glinton by 12 clear goals the Lincolnshire lads knew they would be pipped to the crown.
But despite two goals from top scorer Connor Murphy and one for Liam Stokes, Oundle could only manage a 3-2 win meaning Deeping were crowned champions on the final day.
Clarets boss Nigel Reeve said: “We were a bit nervous as I spoke to the Glinton manager before the game and he told me they only had 10 men.
“Luckily those 10 men went out and gave Oundle a really tough game and in the end they were probably unlucky to lose 3-2.
“So it was a great effort from them and obviously it confirmed us as champions so we were delighted.
“It is a bit strange to win it in those circumstances but that does not take away from the achievement.”
And with Deeping due to fold, Reeve is delighted his team were able to go out on a high.
“I don’t think the team will be about next season so it was great to be able to finish with the league title,” he added.
“It has been great working with the lads for all these years and they deserve it.
“I would also like to thank my assistant Rick Levin who has been superb all season and has played a big part in helping the team to the league title.”
Deeping’s title winners: Luke Gasson, Tom Hutton, Dustin Edwards, Kieran Law, Michael Lepore, Adam Zone, Mitch Lyth, Tom Webb, Jake Gardiner, Jamie Reeve (capt), Tommy Peck, Josh Popple, Chris Walls, Ryan Levin, Seb Bialoskorka, Adam Lomas, Fred Clayton, Connor Pilbeam, Lewis Jackson.
