Two local teams have been celebrating trophy success in the last few days, and for one it means a superb league and cup double.

Loughton Manor made up for narrowly missing out on the top flight title when they beat City Colts 4-2 to lift the Premier Division Trophy at Buckingham Athletic FC on Monday night.

That came two days after Bow Brickhill Reserves edged past Stoke Hammond 3-2 to win the Division One Trophy at the same ground.

For Brickhill it means an excellent end to a season in which they have only lost four games on the way to winning the Division One crown, and they still have two fixtures to fulfil.

The Intermediate Division Trophy final takes place on Thursday night with Denbigh Hall taking on AFC Santander, and the Division Two Trophy final between Comet MK and Steeple Claydon follows this Saturday.

Potterspury have won the Premer Division title ahead of Loughton, and they could also be celebrating a double after they beat Grendon Rangers 2-1 to reach the Interdivisional Trophy final on Saturday.

They will meet fellow top flight team City Colts in the final at Buckingham Athletic next Tuesday after they saw off a brave fight from Comet MK of Division Two with a 2-1 win.

Meanwhile the battle for the Intermediate Division title is still going on, but Woburn Sands Wanderers remain in the driving seat after their 2-1 win over Syresham. Rivals Buckingham Town are five points behind with a game in hand.

Wolverton Town Res drew 0-0 against AFC Santander, as Hanslope saw off Grendon Rangers Res 1-0, Denbigh Hall lost 3-0 to Deanshanger and Bow Brickhill lost to Brackley Sports Res by the odd goal in nine.

With Bow Brickhill Res confirmed as champions of Division One, the rest only have second place to play for.

However, at the other end of the table, Cage Athletic lost 3-2 to Stewkley Res, Woughton went down 4-3 to University of Buckingham, Olney fell 3-2 to Southcott Village Res and Deanshanger Res were 2-0 winners against Charlton & District.

Comet MK remain set to clinch the Division Two title from Scot, but that could all change when the two sides meet on Thursday. Comet are currently six points behind Scot but have four games in hand.
