CASTROL Tessuti have completed their league campaign with a 100% record but lost out on winning a second cup in as many weeks.
The Oilmen's 7-1 mauling of next-to-bottom Gunners Enterprise on Thursday ensured they completed their Ellesmere Port & District Premier Division Championship campaign with 14 wins from as many matches.
But they were surprisingly beaten 4-2 on penalties by Division One Champions Westminster, who themselves had lifted the Kingkab Cup seven days earlier, when Sunday's George Williamson Memorial Jubilee Challenge Cup final finished 1-1 after extra time.
It was only the second game all season in 35 matches that Castrol had failed to win, with their only defeat coming against The Dock in the Wirral Cup.
Castrol gained revenge on the Birkenhead side with a crushing 4-1 win in the Cheshire Sunday Cup final on April 24.
Although manager Bob Mayo is desperately disappointed by Sunday's giant-killing by Westminster, he believes this has been the club's best-ever campaign.
He said: 'Without a doubt this has been our most impressive season. We had the disappointment of a couple of cup final defeats last year which made us more determined. We've added a few new faces to our squad but it's mainly the same side. Everyone has been outstanding and played to their potential and 33 wins from 35 games isn't bad at any level.'
Also on Sunday, SC Red Lion won the Castrol Cup final with a 2-0 success over Thomas Telford thanks to goals from Liam Sixsmith and Michael Williams.
A Marc Evans hat-trick inspired RJS Sir Robert to a 3-2 Division Two victory at Travellers Rest who netted through an Ian Bradley brace.
In a midweek Division Two fixture, SC Red Lion had triumphed 4-1 over Travellers Rest.
The final Ellesmere Port & District Sunday Senior League fixture takes place on Friday as Gunners Enterprise host Octel in a Premier Division clash on Stanney Grange pitch two.
