List of FA Trophy winners[edit]

This peer review discussion has been closed.
I've listed this article for peer review because I feel it's nearly ready for FLC. Let me know what I might still need to work on.......

Thanks, ChrisTheDude (talk) 17:57, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, Chris, I don't think this list/table needed to be split out from the parent article, it was perfectly fine where it was and the main FA Trophy article is the poorer for its removal. If it has to be split, a) I'd drop most of the lead as it's not all relevant to the list, and b) consider renaming it to List of FA Trophy finals, as the runners-up have equal prominence to the winners. - fchd (talk) 21:46, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
Fair enough, I'll see what other people think as to whether the list should even exist. But if it does stay, I don't see what's wrong with the title, as it matches List of FA Cup winners, List of UEFA Cup winners, etc etc. As far as precedent goes, the latter article got broken out from the UEFA Cup article and subsequently elevated to Featured List and nobody seemed to have an issue with that...... -- ChrisTheDude (talk) 08:25, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
I don't have a problem with the content of this list at all. The FA Trophy itself may not be a big competition like the FA Cup or the UEFA Champions League, but a comparable amount of content has been provided for this list, so I don't think there's any need to argue its deletion. – PeeJay 11:54, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

  • "In 1979, the leading Southern and Northern Premier League teams formed the new Alliance Premier League,[12] and teams from this league dominated the Trophy during the 1980s, although in the 1980–81 season Bishop's Stortford of the comparatively lowly Isthmian League First Division won through nine rounds to reach the final and then went on to defeat Sutton United." Long sentence probably worth breaking up. Also "and then went on to defeat" could be simply reworded by "final, where they defeated..."
  • Shouldn't the table of "Results by team" by sorted by wins then losses then either last final won or alpha order?

Not much else to say. It's otherwise spot on as far as I'm concerned. Peanut4 (talk) 23:48, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

    • Cheers for your comments. All addressed now, I think -- ChrisTheDude (talk) 08:10, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
