Along with the National League playoff semi final, which saw Salford knock out Eastleigh on penalties, there was also semi finals that needed sorting in the National League North and South.
In the North division, Spennymoor Town sealed their place in the league’s final but it had to go to penalties to knock out Brackley Town after it was 0-0 after 90 minutes and extra time.
They won 5-4 in the shootout and if they win the final, they will be in the fifth tier of English football for the first time ever in the club’s history.
