Wyberton completed their season by lifting a treble of trophies, following their 7-0 drubbing of Ruskington Rovers.

Gary Frost’s side - already crowned the Taylors Garages Premier Division champions and the Fishtoft Cup winners - comfortably eased past their opposition to lift the Sharman Burgess Sports Cup.

Curtis Revell struck a brace, while Peter Lovelace, Daniel White, Nicky Syndercombe, Kane Watson and Jordan Favell scored the remaining goals to cap off a tremendous season by winning the league’s premier trophy competition.

A close encounter had been expected with both teams being undefeated league champions in their respective divisions, although Rovers competed two divisions below Wyberton this season.

And this was the case for the opening 30 minutes of action at Tattershall Road last Tuesday.

That was until Lovelace clipped the ball home at the near post and Revell netted a second just three minutes later.

This double whammy left their second division opponents having to chase the game in the second-half.

And in doing so they inevitably left gaps at the back.

Wyberton duly exploited those holes to score a further five times after the interval to run out resounding victors as Rovers tired.

White grabbed the third before Revell added his second of the evening.

Syndercombe, Watson and Favell then showed their side’s ruthless streak as they added to the tally and put Wyberton in seven heaven.

The Man of the Match award went to Wyberton’s two-goal star Revell.

Guest of honour Peter Sharman, of sponsors Sharman Burgess Estate Agents, made the presentations to both teams and the match officials.

Despite the scoreline, Ruskington battled to the end and can be proud of reaching the final in their first season in the Boston Saturday League, having knocked out three Premier Division teams along the way.

They also have the comfort of knowing they took the Taylors Ford Division Two by storm, claiming the award without defeat.

However, Rovers’ feat was matched at the top flight by Wyberton, who have had a campaign to savour.

The previous week they completed their Premier Division season by winning all 22 league matches, scoring 104 goals and conceding just 28 as they reached 66 points.
