King's Lynn Town Reserves are celebrating a sensational fourth title triumph in a row.

The Linnets' second string have chased down long-term Peterborough Premier Division leaders Netherton United and have secured a fourth successive promotion with a game to spare. Jonathan Hawes' talented side – who will move up to Step Six of the non-league ladder and possibly be placed in the Thurlow Nunn First Division – benefitted from Netherton's 1-1 draw with Whittlesey in midweek.

Defender Chris Ward said on Twitter: 'Four league titles in four consecutive years! Doesn't matter what level you play at, that takes some doing! #winners'
