Tamworth Services: Ain’t she purty?
With just two points separating Mansfield Town and Kidderminster Harriers at the top of the Blue Square Bet Conference Premier table going into their final round of games this weekend, hi-tech measures have been taken to ensure that the trophy will be delivered on time to whichever side snags the title.
With Mansfield at home to Wrexham and Kidderminster at home to Stockport 90 miles down the road, Blue Square Conference general manager Dennis Strudwick has confirmed that he will be parked up in the car park at Tamworth services – near enough equidistant between the two grounds – with the trophy strapped into his passenger seat, ready to rush it (while obeying all the requisite speed limits) to whichever side are sitting pretty at the summit of the championship come full-time.
Oh, the impossible glamour of the English lower leagues.
