EVEN THE weather is on Accrington Stanley's side as the sun shone all weekend to commemorate a glorious campaign at the Interlink.
After shivering through the season, the Conference champions played their final home game on Saturday in non-league's top flight in relative warmth and finally got their hands on the coveted league trophy.
There was more champagne, more cheers and more partying as the Stanley fans have never got tired of congratulating the side who have achieved the long awaited Football League return.
To be honest, the game against the Conference strugglers wasn't the best. The first half was largely forgettable with Mark Cooper's side having the best of the four goal attempts. And the table topping players knew it wasn't good enough.
"We nearly came to fisticuffs at half-time as there were some harsh words said. We can't let our standards drop," said boss John Coleman.
Captain Peter Cavanagh admitted: "This was definitely the worst rollocking of the season."
It needed the introduction of pacey young sub Andy Mangan to change the game after the break.
He outstripped the static Matt Redmile a number of times and was instrumental in the two goals.
A goal was always coming in the second half. Paul Mullin, looking for his 20th goal in all competitions, headed against the woodwork on the hour before a bit of skill broke the deadlock.
Players' Player of the Season Ian Craney back-heeled for Mangan who mishit his shot but it fell to Andy Todd who fired the ball past Sean Bowles at the second attempt on 62 minutes - his second in two games.
And the Reds were soon celebrating the second when Mangan outfoxed Redmile and fired in a cross. Mullin left it but Craney finished superbly to make it 13 league goals for the season.
To be fair to Tamworth, they then forced a spell of pressure which went unrewarded - until injury time.
Then player-manager Cooper forced Rob Elliot into pulling off a stunning save. Kyle Storer pounced and fired the ball back in with Elliot again one-handedly pushing out the shot. Storer was there again but this time it was the hand of Cavanagh which denied him. It was a shame the captain saw red and it was disappointing that Elliot let in his first penalty in six as Storer gave the Lambs some consolation.
But it couldn't spoil a fantastic day where chairman Eric Whalley and co could finally add another trophy to their cabinet - but this one was extra special.
