K&P's dream of an amazing treble is still very much alive as they deservedly beat local rivals Bungay in a thrilling match to lift the Suffolk Veterans Sunday Cup.

In a repeat of last year's league cup, K&P again came out on top in a seven-goal thriller and their amazing run in vets football has now seen them go a full two years unbeaten and require one more point from their final two fixtures to be Premier Division champions.

After winning the double of the League Cup and Division One last season they will have the chance of a historic treble if they can beat Melton in the final of the League Cup on May 8.

The match saw K&P get off to a terrible start when Gary Love fired past Jenner with only two minutes gone.

K&P's response was quick and Darryl Hill outpaced Kevin Supple to fire home with a cool finish and soon they were celebrating again when Ian Wilson brilliantly fired home from a corner. With twenty minutes remaining Hill made it 3-1 to K&P with a brilliant header from player manager Jon Sturman's corner.

The game though suddenly changed and following an injury, K&P switched off and Bungay raced through down the right and fired home past Jenner.

Bungay heads were now up and panic began to set in as the experienced Mick Money was allowed time and space in the box as he fired home precisely to make the scores level with still 12 minutes remaining.

But with three minutes left Simon Hall beat his man down the right and pulled the ball back for Freddie Cable to plant a header in the corner of the net for the win.

One bit of sad news to end with as George Millington will miss the last games after a scan has shown he broke his ankle during the game.
