THURLBY Tigers U13s clinched the Peterborough Junior Alliance Division Three title with a 6-3 victory against Glinton.

Glinton took the lead after some good football and although Thurlby pressed hard to equalise, shortly after hitting the post, they found themselves two goals down.

Towards the end of the first half some great play on the wing from Lui Tompsett set up Cameron French to score at the far post.

The Tigers maintained the pressure and Thomas Morgan knocked in a rebound just before the break to square the match before half time.

Two early goals in the second half, scored by Jordan Laud and Korey Breen, gave their supporters belief but with both sides playing good football Glinton pulled one back after some great forward play and a deflected finish to make it 4-3.

Thurlby’s players responded with quick goals from Laud and Morgan to round off a 6-3 scoreline to top the table by a single point.
