Ketton are the winners against Warboys in Peterborough Senior Cup clash




Consistency in their team selection helped Ketton claim their first win of the Peterborough Senior Cup campaign on Saturday.

Darren Moody's men ran out 3-1 winners in their Group B clash with Warboys at Pit Lane thanks to a double strike from Liam Taylor - including a contender for goal of the season - and Cameron Brookes' first for the club.

It was another solid showing by the Rutland side who had narrowly lost 3-2 the previous week to Premier Division rivals Eye United.

Moody said: "We played really well and it was nice to have some consistency in the team selection.

"We had a very similar side to the week before and the lads rewarded us. They did really well.

"It has taken us a month to get up to speed and it's a shame that the season does end this Saturday.

"But it was nice that these lads have shown that they want to be at Ketton and have started to put the performances in.

"We know what we need to do in the summer and that will happen but that core group of lads will be what we build around and we will add the missing pieces to them.

"They are the ones who have gone with blood, sweat and tears for Ketton in the past few weeks and have really stepped up."

Ketton were missing striker Will Chamberlain for Saturday's clash after he picked up an injury in midweek playing for Peterborough United's scholarship side.

They were boosted by the return of captain Connor Breakell until he was forced off injured late in the first half after the recurrence of a knee problem.

Ketton made a flying start to the contest and Taylor gave them the lead in style after just three minutes.

He collected a pass on the halfway line and burst forward before hitting a sensational strike that rocketed into the top corner of the Warboys net.

However, the lead was short-lived as the Witches equalised five minutes later when a near post corner was flicked home by Jamie Darlow.

Ketton then had the majority of possession and regained the lead with a fine header from Brookes following Lewis Brisbourne's diagonal pass.

The visitors were then reduced to 10 men when Scott Duncan was red-carded for violent conduct.

Ketton continued to control a scrappy contest and sealed their win with 10 minutes remaining when the impressive Brisbourne set Taylor free and he finished with aplomb.
