A great back page (and the front page wasn’t bad either)

Midweek football matches can be a nightmare for daily newspapers. Even with deadlines pushed back to ensure the match report gets in, it can be a down-to-the-wire battle to get everything in before the presses roll.

So with that in mind, I loved this back page from the Daily Post in North Wales today. It’s one thing to get the content in, another to make it look as though they’ve had ages to craft a brilliantly punny headline too – especially when events happened so close to the full time whistle:

And while I’m at it, the front page headline was a bit of a showstopper in Chester Service Station today too:
