The Northants Combination side completed a fine treble as they beat Weldon United Reserves to win the NFA Area Cup while they also secured the Division Three title and Cup in their league.

And they did it all without tasting defeat.

Having beaten Grendon Sapphires 3-1 in the final of the knockout competition, Ravens rounded off their unbeaten league campaign with a 3-1 success over Finedon Volta Reserves last weekend.
