The first National League playoff finalist confirmed – 4th May

This afternoon saw the first team to become a National League playoff finalist confirmed as AFC Fylde knocked out Solihull Moors.

The Coasters book a place at Wembley Stadium and will face the winners of Salford City vs Eastleigh which takes place tomorrow afternoon live on BT Sport.

It will be Fylde’s second trip to the national stadium this month as they are set to take on Leyton Orient in the FA Trophy Final too.

The only goal of today’s National League playoff semi final came from Danny Philliskirk, son of former Sheffield United and Bolton Wanderers forward Tony Philliskirk.

It came after just two minutes when Danny picked up a loose ball and his strike bent into the top corner from the edge of the box.

The eventful start continued as three minutes later, Fylde could have gone two up, but Philliskirk somehow failed to get the ball in the net.

Then the 10th minute saw the away side’s Dan Bradley hit the post, the scoreline could have been 3-0 by this point.

Dave Challinor’s side managed to hold out for the win despite Solihull trying hard to get an equaliser.

Fylde will now face either Salford City or Eastleigh on Saturday the 11th of May before heading there again on the 19th.


Following the final whistle, fans of both clubs took to reply on their club’s full time tweets – find out how they took the result on the next page.
