Altrincham promoted to Conference
Two goals in a minute at Stoke's Britannia Stadium helped Altrincham beat Eastbourne Borough in the Conference North/South play-off.

Rod Thornley opened the scoring in the 55th minute and Val Owen made it 2-0 one minute later.

Scott Ramsay pulled one back in the 89th minute to give Altrincham a scare but the Conference North play-off champions came through.

They will now take part in the top Conference division next season.
