Trafalgar's two teams could both land a fine double this weekend.

With the first team having won the Sunday League first division and the Reserves landing the second division title, both will be looking to put more pressure on their trophy cabinet as they go for glory in the respective Senior Cup and GoalSports Trophy finals on Sunday.

Trafalgar tackle West Pier in the Senior Cup at Seamer Sports with the game kicking off at 11am, while the Reserves will take up the baton at 2pm when they do battle with Cayton Corinthians on the same pitch.

First team boss Liam Salt has already had a couple of final nightmares this season, as his side recently lost out to Newlands on penalties in the Scarborough FA Sunday Cup, having previously suffered a North Riding FA Sunday Challenge Cup final defeat against Guisborough Town.

They are keen to put those frustrations behind them though ahead of Sunday's encounter.

Salt said: "We are looking to bounce back because losing in a cup final is horrible. You go into these games with plans in place for the game and the night out, but then when you lose it all falls apart.

"It was nice for us to win the league back this season because that was our main aim. Now we've done that we want to go on and win a cup.

"Pier will make it tough for us because they are a good side who always give us a game.

"We have a full squad available for it though, apart from our skipper Neil Thomas, who is a big loss.

"Billy Logan and Sean Exley always have a goal in them up front, while Shaun Dodson, Gaz Thomas and Danny White have done well further back, so we are confident."

Salt was also quick to pour praise on Mikey Barker's Trafalgar Reserves team ahead of their cup final showpiece.

He added: "It has been a good season for the club as a whole.

"We are lucky because we have a good first team and a good reserve team, you usually get one or the other in local football.

"Mikey has done a good job with the reserves since taking over, you can't fault his attitude.

"It would make it a great day if we could both win a cup."
