On the day, Northampton Town proved too strong for the Marigolds, running out 4-0 winners at The Sportsfield – but the Littlehampton players went on to do the league and cup double that season as champions of the Sussex County League Division One and winners of the league cup, and also made it to the FA Vase semi-finals.
