EVERYONE here at the ‘Tiser offers our massive congratulations to everybody involved with Ilkeston FC after their magnificent inaugural season since they were re-formed saw them secure promotion at the first time of asking.
A dominant performance against Leek Town on Saturday eventually finished with a 2-0 victory to book their place in the Evo-Stik Premier League where they will be doing battle with old rivals Eastwood Town once again.
Credit must go to the players and management team but also the new owners who quickly installed a fresh confidence in the club when they took over the reins.
And the fans themselves played a part by continuing to go and watch the Robins week-in week-out culminating in a bumper crowd watching the play-off final win.
This was a richly deserved success which has clearly made the town very proud so once again we say well done to everybody at the club.
