What a moment, two years apart from utter heartbreak as they fell out the Football League, now Bristol Rovers are heading into League One.

They did it the hard way, coming from a goal behind against already-relegated Dagenham and Redbridge and left it until added time to score the goal that would see them promoted. They had to rely on a result going their way and with Accrington Stanley only managing a draw, that was enough to do it.

A big congratulations to Darrell Clarke and his team, who have taken the momentum of winning the Conference playoffs last season into this and have never looked back. What a run they have been on and now, they are only one division below their cross-town rivals, which would be a dream for their fans.


And that’s almost it for The72 Football League Weekend Awards this season, join us for a playoff special in a few week’s time but for all the teams not involved, this writer looks forward to seeing most of you again next season.
