League One's furthest trips
Monday, 26th May 2014 16:55 by Col

With Fleetwood taking the last vacant place in League One for next season, we've got the A-Z out and worked out the mileage we're going to face next season with a trip to Gillingham being our longest trip.

As expected, Oldham will be the closest game and that will be the closest game between any two sides in League One next season such is the proximity between the two towns.

All mileages come via the RAC Route Planner, so you can take their word for it. The distances are the mileage between the two grounds.

Oldham Athletic 6

Bradford City 30

Preston North End 42

Sheffield United 48

Barnsley 52

Crewe Alexandra 53

Chesterfield 58

Fleetwood Town 59

Port Vale 60

Doncaster Rovers 66

Scunthorpe United 80

Walsall 95

Notts County 103

Peterborough United 146

Coventry City 152 *

MK Dons 172

Swindon Town 178

Bristol City 190

Leyton Orient 222

Colchester United 234

Yeovil Town 247

Crawley Town 258

Gillingham 258

* Assuming they're still at Northampton next season

Christ its a bit daunting when the 'mid table' distance is Bristol!

Even with a Southern based league it mounts up to 7264 for me (hartlepool and carlisle 700 miles between 'em 1 way) and thats without 500 mile round trips for home games!!
I reckon you chaps need to get a sense of perspective ;)

Should be fund then!

Its worse than that. Once you've travelled the 8000 miles to get there its an average £3 more per game to get in. Insult to injury, the further you go the more it costs once you get there - Plymouth £24, Charlton £25 and Brighton £23 admission. This must be whats known as the price of success

Fifty years ago yesterday, Colchester United of the 4th Division pulled off the greatest cup giant-killing ever, beating 1st Division Leeds United 3-2 at Layer Road. Watched by 16,000, and the Match of the Day cameras, Dick Graham’s U’s, a rag-tag band of mostly aging journeymen, defied the odds to defeat arguably the greatest club side in Europe at the time. “The greatest cup giant-killing ever” is a bold claim, and over the years various football magazines and websites have run their own polls of which was the greatest. Whilst that day at Layer Rd always features, as the years have gone by other feats fresher in the memory have been put forward as a candidate – we probably all remember Ronnie Radford’s screamer against Newcastle, Sutton’s exploits, or even Bradford City quite recently at Stamford Bridge – but these pale into insignificance when you pause to reflect on the Don Revie side that we beat that day. Sprake, Cooper, Charlton, Hunter, Lorimer, Giles etc – all full internationals, all household names – the only one missing was Billy Bremner, and that was because he was injured. By comparison, all we had to offer was Ray Crawford – at his peak arguably on a par with some in the Leeds side, but that peak had been ten years earlier playing for Ipswich and England. Eleven heroes didn’t just try and hold out against Leeds United, they took the game to their illustrious opponents with such tenacity, grit and no small amount of flair, and before we knew it, the U’s were 3-0 in the lead. As legs tired, Leeds got back into the game with goals from Hunter and Giles, but we held firm – typified at the death by Graham Smith pulling off an impossible save to ensure the U’s achieved the greatest cup giant-killing ever!

And so the dust settles on another transfer window closing, and despite (my) expectations that the possibility of incoming business was going to be remote, we have instead seen a veritable flurry of activity, with no less than three coming in. Big Frank Nouble, making a very welcome return on loan from Plymouth Argyle, of course needs no introduction. Neither really does feisty Brendan Sarpong-Wiredu, here on loan last season, and this time signed full-time from Charlton Athletic for an undisclosed fee. Actually paying hard cash for someone did come as a surprise, presumably offset by the sale of Cohen Bramall to Lincoln for a similarly undisclosed fee. However, the fact that the Addicks have insisted on not only a sell-on clause, but a rarely used buy-back clause too, suggests (a) Wiredu’s signing fee probably wasn’t too high, and (b) Charlton are protecting those finances with these clauses. The last one, which would have been a complete surprise for me were it not for a contact leaking me the news earlier yesterday, is left-back Josh Doherty on loan from Crawley. Josh was only announced once outgoing left-back Bramall was confirmed, and presumably his loan is directly related to part-time fashion model, TV and radio celeb and former left-back Mark Wright signing for Crawley on a non-contract game-by-game basis in December. We have also released seven from the academy, Ollie Kensdale, Miquel Scarlett, Sammie McLeod, Michael Fernandes, Ollie Sims, Danny Collinge and Matt Weaire, and I’m sure we all wish them the best for the future.
