SPORT: Both Grantham & Stamford miss out on promotion

The dream of promotion is over for both Stamford AFC and Grantham Town.

Grantham's Evostik Premier play-off final ended in a 2-nil defeat at Ashton United.

Stamford also won't be promoted next season after losing their play off final 2-1 away at Bedworth United.

It was an exiting match as Bedworth went one up in the dying minutes of the second half before Ollie Brown-Hill equalized for the Daniels in time added on, taking the match into extra time.

Elsewhere, Lincoln City have got the point they needed to secure their place in the League Two play offs.

Tom Pett’s first ever goal for the Imps gave them the equaliser in yesterdays 1-all draw with Yeovil.  Earlier Matt Green had a penalty saved.

Lincoln now face Exeter, with the first leg at Sincil Bank, next Saturday.

Grimsby Town ended their troublesome season on a high, with a resounding 3-nil win over Forest Green Rovers.  JJ Hooper got all three, in the second half.

After fearing relegation just a month ago, they end the season midtable, in 18th place.

Scunthorpe United will meet Rotherham next Saturday lunchtime, in the League One play offs. 

The Iron have finished 5th in the table after last nights 1-all draw with Bradford.
