Sherburn Village WMC lifted the final honour of the season, beating champions Oddies 2-1 to claim the Durham Alliance Combination League Challenge Cup.

Sherburn led until the closing stages at the Billy Hardy Complex when Oddies managed an equaliser, but the Wearsiders were sunk by a last-minute winner.
