Duston Garage Division 3 Cup Final- 23/04/15 Desborough & Rothwell United v Northampton Mereway The game brought together the division three champions elect and the beaten NFA area cup finalists at a new venue for the Combination at Wellingborough Whitworths.  Mereway started well and after only 11 minutes Tom Wiles scored following a great build up. That old saying of your at your most vulnerable when you have just scored nearly came true when Desborough & Rothwell shot wide a minute later. This spurred them on and after a great volley from Michael Bass which went just wide they equalised with a header from Sam Baines following a great free kick. Both teams had chances to win the game in the second half as players become tired after a long season. Extra time loomed and Mereway had keeper to thank for a number of great saves.  The game became stretched in extra time and both sides had chances to win. Despite being the divisions highest goal scorers Desborough and Rothwell could not kill off a defiant Mereway. Tom Wiles doubled his goals with 6 minutes to go with a clinical finish following another counter attack.  Mereway lifted the cup, Tom Wiles was man of the match and Wellingborough Whitworths proved what a great cup final venue they are.      Duston Garage Division 1 Cup Final- 30/04/15 Clipston FC v Corby Pegasus Clipston score a near post header to make it 1-0 after 4 minutes in. Penalty awarded to Clipston but it gets cleared out, good defending by Pegasus. Pegasus gain some confidence but miss a goal. Clipston free kick headed straight in by Simon Barby, 2-0. Pegasus have a shot past the post. Clipston’s Simon Barby takes it all the way and past the goalkeeper into an open goal. Clipston awarded a penalty and it is smashed straight into the bottom left corner to make it 4-0. Pegasus make a break for it, Goalkeeper runs out and blocks, goes in on the rebound thanks to Jordan Middleton. An action packed first half comes to a close 4-1. The second half sees Pegasus playing a lot better but without producing any goals with both teams missing decent chances and a disallowed goal. Clipston add another goal to their total in the dying minutes to seal the deal, 5-1.
