Vikings do the double

First published in Sport

For the first time since their formation in 1971, Vikings FC have finally won not only a league title but also promotion to the Clacton Sunday League premier division.

Last week's 9-2 drubbing of Harts virtually tied matters up and a 4-3 win over Sunday Shrimpers enabled them to lift the division one championship as well as the Division One League Cup.

Blake Panrucker and Dave Bull (2) gave them a three-goal interval lead but, Shrimpers' efforts were rewarded with a goal from Lee Friend.

Stuart Oughton netted a fourth for Vikings, but Shrimpers refused to lie down and deservedly reduced the deficit with late goals from Rob Pratt and Stan Wildney.

In division two, Sokretez beat Oakley Magna 8-2 to win the title, meaning all three divisional winners completed their respective doubles - a first for the league.

Sonny Turnbull and Gary Clark both hit hat-tricks, with others coming from Cameron Welsh and an own goal.

Bullers hammered Trinity House 10-1.

It was a case of one got five and five got one as Tom Sneddon hammered home a nap hand, with Bullers' other goals coming from Oliver Shirley, Craig Bruce, Steve Duncan, Nicky Spiller and Chris Beadle.
