With the wind behind Northcote. they pushed on from the start.

Their hard work paired with movement and good range of passing deserved a goal but with half time looming it looked like they wouldn’t find that killer final ball.

A chance came through a free kick 20 yards from goal, and Rollinson’s low shot hit the corner of the net.

The second half was all about Burton Agnes with the midfield duo of Scott Carter and Tom Benninger pulling the strings.

They set up camp was in the Northcote half and a free kick was whipped into the area from Robson, which just needed a glance off Dom Richardson’s head.

That equaliser would test the resolve of Northcote as there were still 40 minutes remaining.

Burton Agnes brought on fresh legs in the form of sub Jack Wiles.

He couldn’t be caught and his pace took him into the box until an outstretched Northcote leg stopped him.

Ref Garry Tindall pointed to the spot, only for Danny Robson to hit the upright with the penalty.

The winning goal finally came from a corner, Morris timed his run to meet the ball at the front post for Blue Bell to win the league and cup double and remain unbeaten.

Man of match went to Burton Agnes midfielder Carter.=
