King’s Lynn Town are going up!
Ian Culverhouse's side clinched a dramatic 3-2 win after extra-time at Warrington to secure their place in the National North Division next season.
Michael Gash was the hero with the winner with just five minutes remaining after it had finished 2-2 at the end of 90 minutes.
Lynn had come through the Southern Premier Central campaign to finish second, got through the semi-finals and the final and then faced this long trip to face the Northern Premier League winners in a 'super' final.
Lynn took the lead through Jordan Richards on 15 minutes, but that was cancelled out two minutes later by Ben Garrity.
Garrity made it 2-1 on 59 minutes and Lynn were indebted to leading scorer Adam Marriott who levelled from the penalty spot with just five minutes remaining.
Extra-time was a tense affair - until Gash struck that glorious winner.
