Best game: Burton Albion v Cheltenham Town (5-6) Cheltenham were two goals down three times before winning it in injury time. Nine goals were scored in the second half.

Worst game: A choice of three and struggling to decide between them: 1) Mansfield Town v Leicester City (0-0, pre-season friendly); 2) Cirencester Town v Thatcham Town (0-0, Southern League) and 3) FC 05 v Easington United (1-0, Central Midlands League)

Best team in relation to level: Lichfield City - hit division leaders Kenilworth for six and played some good football to boot.

Worst team: Cirencester or Thatcham - flip a coin!

Best ground in relation to level: Treharris Athletic Western with Hednesford Town a very close runner-up.

Most picturesque setting: Attenborough (Notts Senior League).

Best programme in relation to level: Easington United (Central Midlands League)

Worst programme: Lye Town (West Midlands League)

Best punch: Melton Mowbray v Barlestone St Giles (Leicestershire Senior League Division
1) - mass brawl and a Barlestone player lands a lovely right hook on a Melton player, which knocks him off his feet. I heard the punch land from sixty yards away. Referee missed it completely.

Most friendliest club: Louth Town

Best goal: Michael Pook's winner for Cheltenham @ Burton.

That's all folks from this season. Back in July or August.
