Oh Burnley

For those who like this kind of thing, i.e. me, interesting that every top English league bar the Premier League was won by a team beginning with the letter B (ignoring the AFC).

Bournemouth won the Championship, Bristol City League One, Burton Albion League Two, Barnet the Conference Premier (with Bristol Rovers winning the play-offs), Bromley the Conference South (with Boreham Wood winning the play-offs) and Barrow the Conference North.

Bristol City also won the Johnstones Paint Trophy for good measure.

Burnley, what happened?

On a similar trivia note, Jonathan Liew had a piece in the Daily Telegraph on the decline of Northern clubs in the Premier League in recent seasons. Why are there fewer and fewer Premier League teams from the North of England?

There'll be at least one fewer next season.
