 Spiders Up (almost)

Queens Park are unbeaten in League Two and 15 points clear at the top.

With 5 matches to go they only need one point to confirm them as champions.

I was sorry to see them give up their amateur status, but turning professional has paid off!

So happy, but Eddie Hunter will be turning in his grave

I believe the President is his son David Hunter who played as full back while Eddie was in charge

Are the champions guaranteed promotion, Stanza? (Please see the thread I started on this subject. )

"Are the champions guaranteed promotion, Stanza? (Please see the thread I started on this subject. )"

My understanding is that after 18 games the leagues split 5/5, so that post-split there are four further rounds of matches involving all teams. It is not a knock-out system, and the points won before and after the split are added together to determine the league positions, just as they are in the Premiership. On that basis, Queens Park would need only 1 more point to go up as Champions.

However, the 5/5 split does mean that a team finishing the season in 6th place could win its four post-split matches and so gather more points over the season than the team that finishes 5th (cf the Premiership under the 6/6 split).

And that team finishing 6th might even have more points than the team finishing 4th. EG with one match to go before the split in League One, Montrose (6th) are only 3 points behind East Fife (4th) so it`s quite conceivable that Montrose will finish the season with more points than East Fife, who then contend the play-offs and perhaps even get promoted!

Spent a really good day at Hampden with Queens Park fans and directors a couple of years ago helping my friend Paul Town doing his Hampden Trilogy art exhibition

We were treated like royalty so I wish them well. I am sure they will do well in League 1 next year and will eventually become a Championship club

Back in the day (until 1950) only in Scotland could you have an amateur club owning the largest spectator capacity stadium on the planet. !!!
