The Recreation Ground-based football club had already claimed the Cambridgeshire Junior Cup for the first time as well as a third promotion in four years.

But two more finals were both played and won to cap a sweet season for Bass.

The first saw them beat Comberton 3-2 in the Foster Cup final. Matt Chapman got one of them while Anthony Lane added two.

A change of strip from white to red two days later didn't make a difference as a third cup was secured.

Unsurprisingly Lane was the man of the moment once more as another brace took his final tally to 65 for the season.
