We are the Champions!

"had their groundsman record a dance song to raise money for a fertilizer machine! ...So, at last, a trophy to admire in the 'Fleet Board Room, right next to the cheese and pickle sandwiches, no doubt."

Well Saturday came and went (like it always does) and there was a small matter of a football game going on at the new Wembley. For once it didn't involve Manchester United or Chelsea, but two of the lesser known teams in England.

In the red corner were Torquay United, ex League Two members and statistically the second best team in the Conference this year. In the white corner were Ebbsfleet United, a team that represents a non-existent town and who had their groundsman record a dance song to raise money for a fertilizer machine!

The question on every one's lips in Devon and Kent (and all MYFC members worldwide) was "who would win?"

For us Kent born and bred folk, we had no doubt that the Fleet would win the FA Trophy. However, my relatives in Devon may have had a different view, but seeing as they are Birmingham City fans probably not!

Being in Australia, I was unable to attend the game, but I got up early on Sunday morning to get the result. My heart was beating madly until I read the scoreline 'Ebbsfleet United 1 Torquay United 0'. I was ecstatic. The club I co-own, along with 29,000 others, had won! It certainly made my day. Interestingly, the scorer, Chris McPhee, used to play for Torquay United. How's that for irony!

So, at last, a trophy to admire in the 'Fleet Board Room, right next to the cheese and pickle sandwiches, no doubt. now the club will have to buy some Brasso!

Well done to all the players, Liam Daish and the coaching staff and all the others that are involved in the running of the club. They say winners are grinners. Guess what I am doing at the moment!

CHAMPIONS!
