With a win required against Pelican Colts, proud Sports were in no mood to slip up — and cantered to a 6-0 victory thanks to good goals from Jake Hollis (2), Josh Pearson (2), Aaron Roberts and Jack Marsden.

Now they are chasing the double because they play fourth-placed divisional rivals Netherfield Boys in the final of the league cup.

The match takes place at Arnold Town’s Eagle Valley Stadium a week on Sunday May 13.
