Clemons helps to Bodens title
Willie Clemons helped Bodens to promotion to the Division 1 Norra — the third tier of Swedish football.
Bodens won their final game of season 2-1 away to Pitea to clinch the title today.
Clemons, the Bermuda midfielder, who jojned Bodens at the start of the season, was substituted in the 88th minute.
Max Nyqvist and Jack Green scored in the first half for Bodens, with Mani netting a late consolation for the home side.
Bodens finished two points ahead of Hudiksvall, with 55 points from 26 matches.
Nahki Wells came on as a second-half substitute in Queens Park Rangers’ 2-0 win away to Ipswich Town in the Sky Bet Championship yesterday.

QPR took the lead after an own goal from Town goalkeeper Dean Gerkin.
Steve McClaren, the QPR manager, was praised his side’s professionalism as they climbed to sixteenth in the table.
“I’m delighted,” McClaren told the club website. “We challenged the players in the week about what they want to do. This is always a tough place to come and they had a good win against Swansea last time out.
“They boys were totally professional. That is the most professional job I have seen from us away from home in terms of controlling the game, getting two goals and getting a clean sheet to collect three points away from home, which we are delighted about.
“You’re always waiting for that one goal that can light the opposition’s fire.
“We said at half-time to control the game, defend well and ensure we keep a clean sheet, and I’m disappointed we didn’t go and get a third or fourth as we had opportunities to do that. That will come and I said to the guys in the dressing room that we have got to keep this spirit in here.”
