Adam Walters claimed the 2014/15 SFP title as FC Free Wheelers pipped Jolly Rogers to top spot by just 24 points.
After a long hard season, it ended up being one of the closest finishes in history, and not only because of the top two. The top 4, indeed 5 or 6, were the closest they have ever been to each other. But ultimately, it was Walters who claimed his second SFP title, after an eleven year wait. He finally rose to the top of the pile with just 6 weeks to go, after Rob Dale had held first place since October, and for 26 consecutive weeks.
Manager Walters was understandably chuffed:
"Woo hoo! That caps an immense day. Well played Bubba, you had a great season, and the fact you were so competitive with such few transfers is worth some silverware itself. Wheelers are delighted to have secured their second SFP title. It's been a team effort, and we hope to defend our title in style next season... It's been the best season I can remember in SFP history."
After holding top spot for the majority of the season, and finishing runner up for the second season in a row, Manager Dale was gracious in defeat:
"Walters has coasted to the league, congratulations mate! Was another great season and title run-in. We will be back next season. Where do I start with where it went wrong?! Injuries have been tough: Foster, Shaw, Debuchy, Ramsey, Giroud, Nugent. Bony going to City wasn't helpful. I'm not the only one to be affected by this kind of thing but has still been annoying! And then Wheelers led by Kane have been flying and were deserved winners in the end. Still, can't complain about second spot and winning the cup."
In the cup competitions, Rob Dale scooped the SFP Cup with a narrow 2:1 over Scott Pritchard, who himself put all of his eggs into the 5ASide Cup to make sure him claimed that honour. Adam Walters doubled up his trophy count with the FFACup, while Matthew Jermy kicked the season off with a the Super Cup win.
