CHAMPAGNE flowed at Great Yarmouth Town Hall last night as players and fans of Great Yarmouth Town FC celebrated the club's first ever promotion at a civic reception.

Dignitaries, including town mayor Tony Smith, who organised the reception and the borough council's leader Barry Coleman joined over 20 fans and the Yarmouth squad to toast the club's first ever promotion in its 113 year history.

The Bloaters won the Ridgeons League Division One title, losing just two games all season and gaining an average of 2.50 points per match, ranking them the 20th best team in the whole country, taking into account nearly 1,600 teams from level one (Premiership) to Level 11 (Anglian Combination Premier).

The players indulged in champagne and party snacks, including scotch eggs after showing off the trophy to their adoring fans from the Town Hall's balcony overlooking Hall Quay on Thursday .
