You would think all Stags fans could have worked that out for themselves. Especially as they of course reached a final (and lost) against Huddersfield. Awful timing to try something cheeky in the resulting penalty shoot out :ffs:
I accompanied my Terriers-fan mate to that. Aside from my mate going all wobbly lipped over the National Anthem, coz he was pissed, the highlights were seeing the teenaged Mansfield fan's face fall as he flicked Vs at us across the barriers when I directed his gaze to the game being restarted with a freekick as their stoppage time "winner" was disallowed, and Liam Lawrence blowing their chances in the penalty shoot-out by trying to lob the first one over the goalkeeper and seeing it come down on the crossbar. A be-suited Jonathan Stead joined Huddersfield on the winners dias, even though he was by then a Blackburn player. :ds:

Weymouth 0-0 Dartford at HT

Darts probably just edged it so far.

A few of you lot really need to do better, you can’t let one fan from Mansfield cause that much distress.

Looking forward to the final, I don’t see much between the two sides from what I’ve seen, and I wouldn’t mind playing either next season to be honest, although Nottinghamshire police will make sure if it’s County we will play each other when crowds are not allowed anyway.

All three Dartford pens over the bar. Collapsed under pressure.

Congratulations Weymouth on two successive promotions!

Congratulations to Weymouth, the best team at the Walks 3 years ago when we both missed out in the playoffs and will now be visiting us again two leagues higher.

Would have liked a trip to Weymouth next season, but the Darts bottling it makes up for that.

Losing a play off final on penalties is a tough one to get over, even worse for us against one of our closest rivals, but Dartford fans absolutely loved it when it happened to us, so I'm delighted roles are reversed.

Already looking forward to the 6 points next season!

Boston 0-1 Alty

Horrible error from the Boston GK, spilled a weak shot straight at him

Absolutely delighted to have Alty come up

The fact we're their bogey team has nothing to do with it
Yeah great to renew our rivalry even though we will lose each game 1-0 as normal. We score for fun against most other sides but dont mind as county fans are actually some of the best around and always come in numbers

Weymouth and Altrincham sound like two old skool non league clubs.

The league definitely needs to keep some ‘new money’ in it to balance it up. Harrogate would fit the bill nicely.

Ahem, with Alty, us and Weymouth promoted its very old school Alliance Premier League. Chuck in Barnet and Yeovil and we’re a quarter of the way there with this league.

I’m conflicted regarding tomorrow, if away fans are allowed then Notts away would see the second biggest turnout of the season for Stones supporters (after Barnet) but Harrogate is a new ground for me so...

IF the EFL appeal against Macclesfield is successful and they get relegated instead of Stevenage then there is every chance Macclesfield would get put straight into NLN - as Boston were when they were a financially dodgy... which would mean a reprieve for Ebbsfleet... or as they used to be called Gravesend & Northfleet. That would make 6 of the original 20 Alliance Premier Teams.

Right then. Here we go.

We are going to win today. The boys are ready and the Football League is calling.

Come on you Pies!

I said Harrogate at the start of the play offs, very basic and methodical football. An individual can win it for county though.

Proper nervous. Think it’s gonna be tough to watch.

I think Ardley will keep the same Starting 11. Think Dennis has earned that and if he’s fit he will keep his place.

I think he will save Enzio for the latter part of the game and JoB will start again on the left.
