Entirely out of curiosity - what happens if there are two (or three) contenders for the title on the last day? Where does the trophy go? I don't think the Conference have the cash to fly it by helicopter to the ground it's won at.

They will make a couple of life-size replicas out of papier-mache, double-sided stickytape and silver spray paint. Nobody will be any the wiser.

I seem to remember that when Mansfield pipped Kiddie the trophy was held at some point half way between until HT when they had a better idea which way it was going (I could have just dreamt this though!).

Obviously the distances involved this time would not make this practical in any case so I guess they will have some replica.

Am sure a few spare tin pots will be available



“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”

They've probably got one they prepared earlier when it was called the Blue Peter Premier.

It is also interesting (or unusual) that each of the top 3 teams  play their remaining home games on the same day. Same for the remaining away games.

Eg, when Town play a home game, so do Barnet and Bristol Rovers on the same day.  The same applies for the away games for the rest of the season.  (This situation applies to the remaining 15 fixtures for the 3 clubs).

If we need a win at home against Aldershot, and Barnet and Rovers also need points to be champions, then they will also have home advantage for their last game.

I am not sure if these fixtures benefit anybody but it may help to secure the Championship before having to rely on our last home game.
