Slough Secure Promotion With Late Winner

Slough came from behind to defeat Kings Lynn in the Evo-Stik Southern League Play Off Final and clinch promotion to the National League South when Manny Williams fired in an  89th minute winner in front of a crowd of more than 2800 at  the Walks Stadium.

Earlier the Linnets had taken the lead only for Slough to level before half time, and extra time looked a certainty until Williams’ late strike.

Elsewhere Hartley Whitney edged out Cambridge City 1-0 in the East Division Final and are promoted along with Swindon Supermarine who came through against Wimborne Town in the West Division Final .

After extra time it was still goal-less at Wimborne but the Marine  – who had beaten Evesham 5-4 in a semi final penalty shootout  on Wednesday –   again showed their spot kick expertise to win 4-3.
