Barnet’s Mauro Vilhete strikes twice against Gateshead to secure title

• Barnet 2-0 Gateshead
• Vanarama Conference win lifts Barnet back into Football League

Martin Allen is more accustomed to final-day drama at the wrong end of the table, so this was something of a novelty – a final day when his Barnet side were crowned as Conference champions and one that was relatively stress-free. Mauro Vilhete’s two goals were enough to see off Gateshead and secure a return to the Football League after two years away.

The equation had been straightforward: equal or better Bristol Rovers’ result against Alfreton. A five-minute spell in the first half apart, when Rovers led and Barnet had not found a breakthrough, the Bees were always ahead of the curve.

Gary Johnson looked slightly bemused when he wandered into the marquee that Yeovil had put up to cater for the media. Outside, a helicopter was taking off and Johnson’s face made it clear this was not the usual scene at Huish Park. “There were only three of you at our last game,” the Yeovil manager volunteered.

Saido Berahino: no need for me to explain not celebrating West Brom goals

• Berahino offers no explanation for non-celebration of four-goal haul
• FA Cup third-round tie was Tony Pulis’s first match in charge of Baggies
• Match report: West Bromwich Albion 7-0 Gateshead

Saido Berahino refused to explain why he had refrained from celebrating his four goals against Gateshead on Saturday, adding to the uncertainty over his future at West Bromwich Albion in what was otherwise the best possible start to Tony Pulis’s reign in charge.

The England Under-21 striker scored three of four goals in 11 minutes either side of half-time to put an end to Gateshead’s hopes after a bright start but not only did he fail to smile at any of the goals; he also eschewed the opportunity afterwards to reach out to happy Albion fans.

Gateshead’s Darren Caskey fired up to face West Brom in FA Cup

Former Tottenham Hotspur player once described as a ‘new Glenn Hoddle’ is relishing a fresh glimpse of glamour in third round at West Bromwich Albion

Almost exactly 60 years have passed since Gateshead last competed in the FA Cup third round and, at the time, few could have expected that the then Division Three North club would face such a prolonged spell out of the spotlight. They gave Tottenham Hotspur a fair workout in January 1955, losing 2-0, but five years later they dropped out of the Football League and the climb back to relevance has, to put it kindly, been gradual.

It is a tale that their assistant manager can identify with. Darren Caskey’s past decade can best be described as peripatetic, his list of employers coming as a surprise when cast against his early blossoming at Tottenham. In 1993, Caskey captained England in the Uefa Under-18 Championship final, scoring the winning penalty and looking a prospect as big as team-mates Gary Neville, Sol Campbell, Paul Scholes and Robbie Fowler. The “new Hoddle” comparisons arrived and there were 43 first-team appearances for Spurs, but it never quite happened for Caskey despite his technical gifts. Subsequent respectability at Reading and Notts County felt anticlimactic.
