Bottesford lift the Newark Alliance Pat Jepson Memorial Trophy

It took a goal in extra-time goal to decide the winner of this year’s Pat Jepson Memorial in the Newark Alliance on Sunday.

The final of the Division One cup competition was played between Bottesford Sunday and Skillington Beehive at Collingham.

Nine points separate the sides in the league, but the cup game was much closer.

After the two sides could not be separated in normal time – which ended goal-less – Oliver Skinner popped up with the extra-time winner.

The cup finals continue this weekend when the top two sides in the Premier Division do battle in the Sam Arnold Memorial Trophy.

This will also be played at Collingham on Sunday (kick-off 2pm).

It could be a double celebration for Farnsfield after they were crowned Premier League champions for the first time.

Trent Albion won 2-1 at home to Rose and Crown Reserves thanks to goals from Daryl Price and Sam Long.

In Division Two, Coddington enjoyed a 6-4 home win over AFC Colsterworth, with seven goals coming in the first-half. Coddington's goals were scored by Michael Knott (2) Ricky Gamwell, Tomas Jordan, James Savidge and substitute Bradan Barnett.

The Three Gables were 3-1 winners at The Bramley Apple Sunday after scoring twice in the second-half.
