Shaun Harvey: Checkatrade Trophy Final a success

9 April 2018

Speaking after the 2018 Checkatrade Trophy Final, EFL Chief Executive, Shaun Harvey exclaimed his delight at both the standard of football on show at Wembley and the the success of the competition as a whole throughout the 2017/18 season.

126 matches led to Sunday's showpiece final at the National Stadium, and the eventual winners' first ever visit.

The frenetic final played out saw Lincoln City crowned the Checkatrade Trophy champions thanks to Elliott Whitehouse's first-half strike.

It was the style and passion of the match that stood out to Harvey in what he claimed was a fine example of the quality of football in Leagues One and Two.
