POTTON United were going for their first silverware of the season this week.

The Royals met Boston Town last night (Wednesday) in the final of the League Cup.

Hosts Raunds snatched an equaliser two minutes from time against 10-man Potton on Saturday.

The visitors had taken an early lead when Steve Kuhne headed home a Lee Allinson cross after good work from Brad Harrison on the right wing.

But the hosts were soon on level terms when they were awarded a free-kick on the edge of Potton's penalty area.

The wall did a great job at blocking the first effort but Matthew Taylor drove home the rebound through the crowded area.
