East Thurrock United had their relegation from the National League South confirmed despite beating Welling United 4-1. The Rocks’ final game of the season Hungerford won at Torquay, meaning they can’t be caught as they’re five points ahead with a game remaining, Truro however could still catch them as they face playoff hopefuls Slough.
