PECKHAM TOWN are the FA National Cup for Veterans champions, after coming from behind to win a thrilling final.
Peckham trailed 2-1 against Burnley’s Commercial Old Boys at Lilleshall – the former England team training centre – before winning 4-3.
Daniel Jones, Marco Black, David Ajao and Ade Banjo scored for Peckham in a competition for over-35s.
Peckham had reached the final by winning four play-off groups before a quarter-final and semi-final against teams from across the country.
They almost blew it in the final, before resolutely coming back and sealing the win.
Player-manager Lloyd Marriott said: “It was a very even game against excellent opponents until the last 25 minutes”.
He added: “All the team – who have played for top non-league clubs and some in higher leagues – are delighted to win for Peckham and south London.”
