Potton’s cup dream ends in final

Goals either side of half time ended Potton United’s dream of being the first Division One club to win the UCL Knockout Cup.

They were beaten 3-0 in the final by the mighty AFC Rushden & Diamonds in front of more than 750 spectators at Yaxley on Bank Holiday Monday.

Diamonds took the lead a minute before the interval with Matt Gearing’s corner going straight in.

Within 17 seconds of the restart Potton’s task had become more difficult, Lorraine steering his shot in off the far post.

Joseph turned the ball home just before the hour to complete Diamonds’ victory.
