The half-time reenactment of the fireplace scene from ‘Women In Love’ went down a treat

Bathed in withering sun, Crewe beat Cheltenham in the League Two Play-Off Final at Wembley yesterday afternoon to snag themselves a berth in League One next season, with the latest wunderkind to roll off the Railwaymen’s production line, 18-year old Nick Powell, opening proceedings with an absolute belter of a goal – darting away from two defenders with his first touch and then lashing a shot across the Cheltenham goal.

‘Twas a thing of rare beauty, no wonder Manchester United are openly sniffing around the £4 million-rated attacking midfielder who cleaned up at Crewe’s end-of-season awards ceremony – winning every single trinket. One to watch.

Highlights (Nick Powell’s fantastic opener – guaranteed this video won’t be up for long so catch it while you can)…
