FOOTBALL managers across England’s top flight prepared themselves for weeks of gloating as Young Boys of Vauxhall increased their lead in the Kenna League.
A brace from Ryad Mahrez and a goal from Romelu Lukaku meant the south London club put 27 points between them and closest challengers Bala Rinas.
For Kenna veterans, Young Boys’ dominance can only mean one thing: increased levels of crowing from the manager.
True to form, he took to social media platform Twitter yesterday….
@jeffkennaleague never mind all this, where’s the latest Kenna table? I want to see how far I’m ahead

Asked for his thoughts on the tweet in a press conference this morning, the Bala Rinas manager said: “My side is putting in good displays with Payet and Pelle playing well. We hope to chase down the leaders eventually, if only to shut the guy up.”
The Judean Peoples’ Front manager, fierce rivals of Young Boys, was more openly hostile: “Who does the Young Boys manager think he is? His team has played well for a third of a season in four years. It hardly constitutes managerial genius.
“The Mahrez signing was complete dumb luck, but he’s touting it around like it’s some sort of tactical foresight. Bellend.”
As a neutral observer, the Kenna chairman remained impartial: “Never trust a man with a toy horse racing set and an Italian girlfriend.”
