Football League Championship Play-Off Final:
Adam 13, Taylor-Fletcher 41, Ormerod 45
Cardiff City 2
Chopra 9, Ledley 37
Next season's Premier League vaudeville will feature Ian Holloway's always colourful off-message exhortations and the famous old club of Stanley Matthews and Alan Ball, thanks to the first-half winner from Brett Ormerod that swept Blackpool into English football's top echelon for a first time since 1971.
For the club whose ground can house a maximum 12,555 spectators the reward is the £90m golden ticket for breaking into the Premier League's cash-soaked arenas, and the chance to avoid becoming the 12th team to be relegated instantly from the 19 that have now won the right to play in the competition since it began in 1992.
