NEWCASTLE ended King’s Lynn’s reign as Premier Trophy holders with a sensational performance at the Norfolk Arena on Tuesday.

The Diamonds took a 20-point lead into the second leg but were not content to go on the defensive, and instead won 46-44 on the night for an emphatic aggregate victory.

Kenni Larsen top-scored for the visitors with 13-points, and he combined with fellow Dane Rene Bach for a last-heat 4-2 which ensured the away win.

Diamonds boss George English said: “What a brilliant performance our lads put on tonight. It was a World Class effort and outstripped all our expectations.
