It's party time as Linnets return to Step 2 football after an 11-year absence
Warrington Town 2 King's Lynn Town 3 (after extra-time)
King's Lynn Town sealed promotion to the National League North with a dramatic 3-2 extra-time win in the Super Play-Off at Warrington.
A late goal from Michael Gash clinched a memorable victory against the Yellows as the Linnets returned to Step 2 football after an 11-year absence.
Warrington had been just five minutes from victory in normal time after Ben Garrity’s headed double, but Adam Marriot’s penalty robbed them of that and sent the final into an extra 30 minutes.
The Linnets, who finished second in the regular season, claimed victory over both Stratford Town and Alvechurch in the Southern League play-offs, to earn their spot in the Super final against the Yellows.
And it looked like they might be able to repeat the feat after taking the lead in the opening quarter-of-an-hour.
Warrington failed to deal with a Ross Barrows cross, which was knocked down by Gash into the path of Richards, who drilled the ball into the net from the edge of the box.
But Warrington's response was almost immediate.
The tricky Jack Mackreth attacked down the right and Lynn failed to clear their lines before Tony Gray clipped the ball back in for Garrity to head home at the back post.
The Linnets had strong penalty appeals turned down in the 35th minute after David Raven appeared to make contact with Adam Marriott's trailing leg in the box and the striker was harshly shown a yellow card for diving.
Lynn were forced into a change eight minutes before the interval with the injured Barrows being replaced by Aaron Jones.
Deep into first half stoppage time, Dylan Vassallo drove forward and played in the dangerous Mackreth, whose first touch was heavy and Alex Street made a comfortable save.
Again, it was Lynn who started the second half the brighter of the two sides.
An early opportunity saw Michael Clunan pull the ball back back for Marriott, but Tony McMillan did well to save from close range.
The Cheshire outfit took the lead 14 minutes after the restart when Vassallo delivered a perfect corner for Garrity to score with a thumping header into the top corner.
Warrington's two-goal hero was booked shortly after for getting a piece of Hawkins who dragged an effort well wide of the target a few minutes later.
Six minutes from time Marriott found space and just as he made his way into the box he was bundled over from behind by Robbie Evans.
Lynn could have won it right at the death after McMillan got down superbly to his right to foil Hawkins, before Raven hacked away the rebound with Marriott waiting to pounce.
The home shotstopper was at his brilliant best again five minutes into the first period of extra-time after he got down well to his right to push another effort from Hawkins behind for a corner.
As half-time in extra-time approached, it was Street's turn to keep Lynn in the tie with his legs after Amis found space in the box following Marcus Cusani's headed pass.
Lynn continued to probe for a winner and, as penalty kicks loomed, it was talisman Gash who provided it.
The striker saw an effort blocked by Raven, before the much-travelled frontman picked up the pieces to curl a superb shot beyond McMillan.
Gash's late winner sparked off wild celebrations between manager Ian Culverhouse, his players, club officials, and Lynn's jubilant fans who travelled to the Cheshire in their numbers.
