Champions in all but name!

The Sons have done it! Not withstanding an 18-goal mishap next week, which, I confidently predict, is not gonna happen, the Scottish Third Division Title 2008-9 belongs to Dumbarton. But I'm too exhausted with celebrating to say anything informative, sensible or even downright silly. So you'll have to wait a wee while for that...   Meanwhile, hearty congratulations also to my 'local heroes' Exeter City, who have achieved a second promotion in a row by winning automatic ascent to English League One. 

Monday update:  (May the Fourth be with you, and all that...!) There are now some fine 'almost Champions' celebration photos by Donald Fullarton viewable here. I imagine he might just sell a few. Also, here are some snaps from the Elgin match itself, which, as an afterthought, we won 6-0, in case you didn't notice. I'm still in shock. I have some mobile phone pics of my own, which I will add when I get a moment. I managed to keep out of the frame myself, I think. I shouldn't be so camera-shy...

Great write-up, which I'll blog myself shortly. Thanks very much! Your second picture has two of my friends in it. They'll be chuffed, I'm sure. :) Quite agree with your comment about the best seats being reserved. You need to do a hospitality package to overcome that problem if you're not a season ticket holder (which I'm not, as I live 367 miles away!)... great value, but still costs more than you'd want to pay for non-Prem football, unless you were dedicated or wealthy.
