The 2005/06 season goes down as possibly the tightest title race in SFP history, as two teams go into the final day level on points
Rewind 10 months, and the season is memorable for a separate reason, as Matthew Jermy sets an auction record when he purchases Thierry Henry for £31.5m, who went on to score 272.
It was Nick Jermy who started best out of the blocks, leading the way for the majority of the first 11 weeks, before defending champion Scott Pritchard leapfrogged him to top spot for 5 weeks. But in week 17 Adam Walters took control of the league and set the pace until he was caught by James Roberts 6 weeks from the end. Those two would chop and change places until the final weekend, where they went into the final day level on points – something we may never see again. Robbo’s ‘Wonder Years’ ended victorious by just 7 points and claimed his 2nd SFP title.
Robbo doubled the title up with a 2:0 SFP Cup win against Nick Jermy, who missed out on a cup double of his own, having scooped the 7aside Cup honour himself, beating Adam Walters. Walters himself missed out on his own double too, and finishing the season as runner up in two competitons.
