Woking and Chorley will be in the National League next season after winning their respective play-off finals.

In the National League South final, Woking overcame Welling United 1-0 at home to seal an immediate return to the fifth tier. It means success in Alan Dowson’s first season at the helm, with the decisive goal coming from Armani Little’s free-kick just before half-time.

For Chorley, it went right to the wire, as they had to beat Spennymoor Town on penalties at Victory Park. Jamie Vermiglio’s side, who were ultimately runners-up in the title race with Stockport County, took the lead on 102 minutes through Scott Leather. Glen Taylor levelled for Spennymoor soon after.

Chorley keeper Matt Urwin saved three penalties in the shootout as the Magpies finally got themselves over the line.
