Blackpool Sealed Premiership Status

Brett Ormerod hit the £90million goal to fire Blackpool to the most lucrative, and unlikeliest, of promotions to the Barclays Premier League, ending 39 years of wait to reach English football's top echelon. For the club whose ground can house a maximum 12,555 spectators the reward reward is truly magnificent.
The unfashionable Lancashire side, who were in the bottom division just nine years ago, will be rubbing shoulders with Chelsea and Manchester United next season after a thrilling 3-2 Wembley victory over Cardiff in the Coca-Cola Championship final.

Cardiff, bidding to become the first Welsh side in the Premier League, led twice through Michael Chopra and Joe Ledley but they were pegged back by Charlie Adam and Gary Taylor-Fletcher before veteran frontman Ormerod cracked the winner in first-half stoppage time.
