Swineshead Institute Reserves lifted the Main Ridge Take Away Reserve Cup with a 3-1 victory over Division Three side AFC Tetford Reserves at Boston Town’s DWB Stadium last Tuesday night.

Tetford defied the two-division gulf between themselves and their opponents by taking a seventh-minute lead through Tom Flatters.

Just three minutes later Giles Favell brought Swineshead level with a low shot.

Swineshead then struck twice in extra time to claim victory - Richard Barker glancing in a header and Man of the Match Liam Murphy floating the ball over the despairing hands of goalkeeper Alan Johnson.

The cup was presented by Chas and Alison Ho from the Main Ridge Take Away, sponsors of the Reserve Cup Competition for the past 33 years.

Swineshead Institute’s first team eased into the BB Insure Willoughby Cup final with a 5-2 home win against Kirton Town, with Mark Sharman scoring twice.

Richard Barker, Bert Snaith and Tim Tyler were also on target.

Division One side Coningsby will be Swineshead’s opponents in the final after they defeated Billinghay Athletic 2-0 the previous week.
