The competition, which ended last night, had been going on for the majority of March, and we’ve lost track of the thousands that have being voting for their favourite every other day.

Any non league side, from as high as the National League, to those down in the county leagues, even some unknown unique logos from across the world featured.

 

It started with a huge amount of regional qualifying rounds, with 384 clubs taking part, before it eventually went down the final 32.

Those who got into the last 32 were Sheffield, Stokesley, Vets Reunited, Newcastle Blue Star, Boldon CA, Windscale, AFC Liverpool, Padiham, Rowsley 86, Wirksworth Ivanhoe, Redditch Borough, Bromsgrove Sporting, St Clears, Pontypridd, Bangor 1876, Huntingdon Town, Bradford Town, Porthleven, Newton Abbot Spurs, Welling Town, FC Roast, FC Elmstead, Buckie Thistle, FC Show, FC Eyjafjallajokull, Tunbridge Wells, Bearsted, Caversham United, Rainhill Town, Wombwell Town, Celtic Shatura and Aveley.

We here at Fan Banter certainly hope that this becomes an annual event, if not, we might be tempted to take it over.
