It happened statto ..

Morecambe 1 Newport 0 AET

A goal by Carlos Mendes (traditional Morecambe name) in the 107th minute enough to send them to L1 whilst Newport and the worst stadium in the entire FL stay in L2

well done Morecambe , they played consistently well and have been at the top end of the table all season.

...all while under (yet more) brilliant, Scots-born footie management.

Why is it that any Scots born manager with the slightest modicum of talent immediately heads south of the border

Per head of population, why does England continue to churn out an endless line of fundamentally useless ones?

ROFLMAO. Including the EPL, there are four leagues chock full of home-grown dross. Just look at the perpetual EPL/Championship yoyo fest. The smarter, richer owners eventually get themselves a Scottish overachiever or fork out for a foreigner rather than recycle the local jobsworths that get passed up for TV pundits.

Just waiting for Stevie G to get his first gig down south and stub his toe. Then the usual suspects will be defending him by saying that he was never, ever really tested at the gers anyway (which is pretty much the truth). He should have taken up Brechin's offer instead and maybe he could have stopped them being dumped out after 67 years in the 'seniors'.

Just reading the Lowland League have rejected Brechin's application to join them so now they'll be (rightly) in the Highland League. They've just sacked their (young Scottish dross) manager too. Probably are feart now of playing that powerhouse Fort William.

Derek Adams has resigned as manager of Morecambe just 3 days after leading them to promotion to League 1.
Word on the street is that he is going to take over at Bradford City and it was a done deal before the end of the season.
Just when I thought our chance had passed,you go and save the best for last.

Australian coaches to the rescue again.

Having successfully resurrected English cricket only a few short years ago, another Aussie coach is heading north to the land where all genders wear a skirt - to resuscitate the Scottish Premiership.
Former Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou has been confirmed as Celtic's new manager in the Scottish Premiership...

........ Postecoglou joins Celtic from Japan's Yokohama F Marinos, whom he coached to the J-League title in 2019.
