Congratulations to Bournemouth who finished as champions to win a place in the top division for the first time in their history. And they did it in some style with an 8, a 6 and a 5-goal haul in away League matches.

Congratulations also to Reading who reached their first FA Cup semi-final since 1927. They put up a good display against Arsenal at Wembley but a mistake by their 'keeper Adam Ferderici in extra time saw the holders score their winning goal in a 2-1 victory.

At the bottom it was a dismal season for Blackpool. The first League club to be sure of relegation (on April 6th) their last match of the season was abandoned when fans invaded the pitch it protest at their relegation and the running of the club by the Oyston family. More details - abandoned matches.

It was quite a surprise when Leeds United appointed as manager Dave Hockaday in the close season just 8 months after he had been sacked as boss of Conference side Forest Green Rovers. It was less of a surprise when he was sacked before even August had ended, after just 4 League matches and two League Cup ties.

Rotherham United suffered another points deduction - this time for fielding an ineligible player, Farrend Rawson, in the
1-0 victory over Brighton on April 6th. Full story
