Bourne Deeping were the only team capable of preventing Long Sutton from winning the league, with both teams already promoted to division 3NW.

From a defence splitting pass Ben Shore settled the nerves with a close range rocket. Shore became provider to Nick Bailey who netted from an acute angle.

Further Sutton goals from Bailey to earn his 40th and the team’s 100th goal of the season, Bailey again for his hat-trick, while Shore completed his hat-trick.

Captain Holmes commented: “We set out for promotion but winning the league is the icing on the cake.”
