I was born in Doncaster Royal Infirmary in 1974, which I think makes me eligible to play for Yorkshire, though I can't say I have maintained close links with the town. Now Doncaster might claim to be sparking a political revival of Englishness, as the English Democrats have won the mayoralty, beating an independent with Labour knocked out in third place before the run-off and the Conservatives nowhere.
The Doncaster Free Press has the details.
These were the first round results:
Peter Davies (English Democrats) 16961 - winner on second round
Stuart Exelby (Community Group) 2152
Michael Felse (Independent) 2051
Sandra Holland (Labour) 16549
Mick Maye (Independent) 17150
Dave Owen (BNP) 8175
Jonathan Wood (Conservative) 12198
