Menary wins headline prize

Steve Menary is the winner of the SJA website’s bottle of 12-year-old malt whisky for his entry Emerson, late and Parma? in our search for a better football story headline than The Guardian was able to come up with.

Bournemouth-based Menary’s offering covered a report when the Brazilian was having an unhappy spell at Middlesbrough, linking the player to a move, though the story, inevitably, got the final destination wrong. Emerson, late and Tenerife? would not have worked anywhere near as well, though, would it?

Thanks to all those who entered.
