The night after the day before and the dust continues to settle on Ramsbottom United’s promotion season which was sealed on Saturday afternoon with victory over Winsford United. Here are Richard’s pictures of the celebrations – both on the pitch and afterwards!!!

And what an amazing day it was. The culmination of three years hard work by co-managers Bernard Morley and Anthony Johnson and their coaching staff finally brought home the North West Counties League Championship for the first time in the club’s history.

Finishing the season four points clear of the chasing pack, the NWCFL Committee and hierarchy presented the trophy to captain Andy Dawson to commence wild celebrations that went long into the night and will continue throughout the week as the players, coaches and everyone involved in the club comes to terms with their magnificient achievement.

Below are a selection of pictures taken by Richard during the presentation and afterwards as the celebrations continued into the evening.
