The FA Trophy and FA Vase Semi Final results are in and we now know which three teams have booked their place at Wembley Stadium.
One semi final tie in the FA Trophy was played out and the other will be either the 16th of 17th of September due to Harrogate Town’s involvement in the Carabao Cup.
They are set to play their playoff final opponents Notts County for a chance to win a second trophy for the 2019/20 season.
The first team to seal a spot in the FA Trophy final was National League South side Concord Rangers, who hosted and beat Halesowen Town 2-1.
After just 7 minutes on the clock, the away side took the lead, Gregory was there to send the ball into the bottom right of the net.
However 30 minutes later, Rob Evans leveled the scoreline, heading into his own net following a incoming cross.
Concord’s Alex Wall was sent through on goal and places it over the keeper and into the back of the net to secure the win.
They will face either Notts County or Harrogate Town at Wembley on the 27th of September 2020.

Over to the FA Vase semi finals now and for the second time in the competition’s history, it will be a Northern League FA Vase Final at Wembley.
Consett took them lead again Bitton with just six minutes to go of extra time. Calvin Smith the scorer, sliding home at the far post after a fine approach of play from Matty Cornish.

Following a 2-2 draw played out in normal and extra time, Hebburn Town managed to win a penalty shootout against Corinthian to set up an exciting tie against Consett.
The last time two teams from the Northern League faced each other in the FA Vase final was Dunston UTS’ 2-0 win over West Auckland Town in May 2012.

Commentator grew into game. Smart tactical decision to switch to landscape early on. Recovered from early blocks to take up some daring positions in their technical area. Showed great endeavour with a couple of cheeky zooms, while displaying clever battery management throughout.
