This classic piece of pottery cost me 5 quid come packing up time at a South Yorkshire collectors fair. Mega rare I'm told! What an investment. Nope, you won't see one of these little beauties on eBay!
Anyway, on with the action, here are the spectacular winners of all that was best with my 2009/10 non league football season.
The 'Where's The Tea Hut' Awards
Most charasmatic and pleasing ground: Witton Albion
Thrilling end to end match: Clitheroe 1 Woodley Sports 0
Delicious scrumptious pie: Glossop North End
Nice programme: Ilkeston Town
Classy kit: The New Saints (TNS)
Fantastic supporters: Blyth Spartans
Entertainer: Carl Heggs (as the manic-dugout-deranged Kings Lynn manager)
My season was somewhat cut short just after the bad weather due to a new job making me mentally insane. I'm pleased to report that I'm over it now (I think) so I will be making a full return to Tea Hut action for the start of the 2010/11 season (warden supervision pending). Can't wait. Might do a bit of World Cup and summertime ranting in the interim, just to keep my arm in.
By the way, I'm open to sensible offers about the mega rare Arthur Wood antique tankard? But it will have to be over 5 pounds.
