SILVERWARE SUMMARY: Bristol Rovers became the first ever team in the League to win 6 out of 6 trophies in a single season. It is a milestone MacGoreth Barrows believes no other team will ever reach, "as the league is becoming tougher and tougher each new season." "To accomplish such a thing in a league with over 100 managers, is just a feeling indescribable. Let's just say we accomplished what many, include myself, deemed as impossible," said the manager after winning Champions League. "This is a side that has cemented themselves in the history of the league, and will forever be remembered," concluded the Gibraltarian manager.
