Young Prospects continued their excellent end-of-season form as they narrowly edged out NK Dons in the Caistor Five-a-side League, thanks to a fine performance from David Barr to win their match 1-0.

NK Dons know they can improve next season, particularly if they take some draws instead of defeats.

Despite some great results this season, Young Prospects can now no longer finish second and will look back on last week’s agonising draw against Caistor Techys and some narrow defeats - 3-2 to both CTFC and Dynamite Parfitt in mid-November.

Alex Lusby and Brad Butcher, however, have a chance to still win the Player of the Season title.

Paul Lockington has put himself in pole position for the award as he was outstanding in a closely-fought encounter between CTFC and Dynamite Parfitt, of which the runners-up elect won 2-0 with a comprehensive performance.

Both Lockington and Ally Stopper are still in contention for Player of the Season as well.

Dynamite Parfitt will look back on an up-and-down season, despite winning more than 60 per cent of their matches, a three-game losing spell in October put paid to silverwear when they went unbeaten before and after.

Hopefully, next season they can move themselves up a couple of places to challenge the top spots.

Ben Togher was the standout performer as Caistor Techys ensured there will be no last-week drama by beating Grey and Young Ones 6-1.

They have dropped points only twice this season and will rightly be deemed champions for a string of superb performance throughout the campaign.

They have never given up if they have found themselves in a losing position, they fight until the final second and there is no surprise they have scored some very late goals to dig wins out.

Will that run continue till next season? They currently have three players vying for the Player of the Season award as well, with Ben Togher, Kieran Toga and Jack Marrott all still in contention.

Grey and Young Ones also have two players in contention with Johno Pucky and goalkeeper Graham Wright still up there.

Bottom of the League beat Crusaders 3-1 with Callum Page the man of the match in a lively encounter.

Crusaders battled well and showed great character, particularly with their goal but Bottom of the League secured their fourth victory of the season and will look forward to next season where they can hope to edge themselves to at least a 50 per cent win rate.
