England Win The Ashes!!!

After a great summer of cricket, England have won The Ashes beating Australia 2-1 in the 5 match series. Billed as the greatest series of all time by some, it today came to close with a drawn game at The Oval. We haven't won The Ashes since 1987 so this is the first time I can remember it happening as I was only four or five years old last time.

As the coverage finished I had a lump in my throat with it being such a happy occasion and also sad that channel 4's superb coverage has come to an end after seven years. Still, it makes the Sky subscription more worthwhile! Not much else to say except that Andrew Flintof will get Sports Personality Of The Year as this is the best day of english sport of the year. Fantastic!
