Bromsgrove Rovers 2 Willenhall 1

Like Leeds United, only playing better football, the Greens have fallen from their high estate in the 90s, when under the great Bobby Hope they finished second in the Conference. Since then they've been reduced to the Southern League Midland Division, playing against much smaller teams. Bring back Alan Craddock and Chris Hooper say I. Much internal politicking and bad feeling means they don't currently seem to have a website, but there is a Supporters site and an unofficial forum.

They've just beaten Willenhall Town 2-1 after extra time in the playoff final, and are promoted to the SL Premier division, from which promotion back to the Conference is possible.

Congratulations to the lads, to manager Rod Brown, and to Sam Allsop for the equaliser and Jermaine Clarke for the winner.
