A Sunday league football team that won a title drank more and sang near empty streets as they toured an open-top bus.

College Wanderers FC also released flares as they toured as first division players after clinching the EC Surfacing Ltd Scunthorpe & District Football League Division One title.

The amateur team was celebrating its third trophy of the season, winning 25 of its 29 matches, also receiving the Challenge Cup and Sporting Shield trophies.

revelers said Sun they spent £40 each hiring the bus to “laugh” and thought they would “feel a bit silly”, but instead had the “funniest two hours” of their lives.

In one video, the team, made up of construction workers, a teacher and a car salesman, can be seen waving and cheering on streets with few signs of life.

On Saturday the team left The Talbot Inn pub around 2pm and were driven through Scunthorpe, stopping only for a cheeky pint.

They returned to their local pub around 4:00 pm, where they later had a barbecue and karaoke night.

Craig Hunsley, 36, the player-coach, said: ‘One of the guys suggested we do it for a laugh if we won the treble.

“I thought we’d all feel a little silly, but it was one of the funniest two hours of my life.”

“We had cars following us, honking their horns and people coming out of stores waving and cheering. It was magical.’

He added that “none” of the team trains because they have “children.”

In the video the team can be seen shouting and cheering as they show off their silver trophy.
