Carter directed his header straight at the AFC Lynn goalkeeper. Lynn rattled the post with Ben Young at full stretch while Denverâ s Dion Evans struck the outside of the post.

In the second half both teams had spells on possession. The winner came when Evans, crossing into the box, found the top right hand corner. AFC created chances but the back four held firm.

â I am immensely proud of the whole squad and so pleased to end our debut season in NWNFL Division 1 in third position,â said manager Darren Thorpe.

All 16 Denver players could have been MoM with several playing their best games for the club. PKS/Morris Armitage MoM: Simon Harvey as also chosen by the NWNFL sponsors.
