Local football club celebrate historic season with open top scaffolding lorry
| Last updated
A local football club has celebrated a historic season with an open top scaffolding lorry.
While most teams would celebrate the win with a fancy dinner out or maybe even a short trip away - Dawley Town FC decided to put their own spin on the traditional tour bus parade.
Opting for a slightly more alternative mode of transportation, the lads can be seen gallivanting through the streets of Shropshire armed with flare guns aboard their noble carriage - or, in this case, scaffolding lorry.
The football team, based just South of Telford in Shropshire, are fresh from an incredible season in the Salop Leisure Football League Premier Division.
The division in question is the 11th tier of the English football pyramid.
Dawley Town FC didn't just win the league with 79 points but they also went through the entire process winning 26 of 27 matches with only one draw.
Not too shabby at all.
Runner-ups included Ludlow Football Club, who took home a decent 66 points, alongside Church Stretton Town who bagged themselves 64.
The lads, dubbed 'The Invincibles' given their impressive track record, took to the streets to mark their monumental victory.
While they travelled down the parade in an open-top vehicle - it's clear that it was the farthest thing from a tour bus.
In fact, it was a scaffolding lorry.
The players can be seen chanting and dancing about the lorry as it drives through the cobbled streets attracting quite a crowd of supportive passers-by.
The community seemed to come out in force, joining in on the chants and cheering the champions on whilst - you guessed it - Queen's 'We Are the Champions' blasted out the speakers.
Complete with confetti cannons for some extra razzmatazz - it's clear that the celebration was a truly wholesome moment for the team and supporters alike.
Amidst the 'Championes Championes Ole Ole' chants, one fan can even be heard cheering: "Dawley Town champions of the world!"
Dawley Town FC lifted the trophy at their Doseley Road ground over the weekend after a mega 5-0 win against Wem Town.
The results meant The Jockeys finished 10 points clear of the team's closest rivals, Ludlow, and successfully secured promotion to step six in the Non-League pyramid for the upcoming season.
Now, it may not have been Wrexham FC's all-expenses paid trip to Las Vegas following their historical promotion win but you can't deny it looks a proper good laugh.
Congratulations Dawley Town FC!
