Saints are gun­ning for some re­venge tonight

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Classifieds - By JAMES WEST­GATE james.west­ @Jim­my­wezz

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.
