Torquay United are back in the Vanarama National League at the first attempt after clinching the National League South title on Saturday.

The Gulls 2-0 win at Plainmoor against relegation-threatened Eastbourne Borough and second-placed Woking`s defeat by the same scoreline at play-off chasing Chelmsford City saw Gary Johnson`s side secure the title.

 

In front of a terrific crowd of 4,539, Torquay took a 23rd minute lead when Jake Andrews wqas brought down in the box.

 

Connor Lemonheigh-Evans’ penalty was saved by Sam Howes, but he was first to the rebound and tapped the ball into an empty net.

 

And the game and the championship was confirmed 7 minutes from time when Andrews fired into the roof of the net to make it 2-0.

 

A crowd of 1,611 saw Chelmsford almost certainly secure their play-off place after beating Woking at the Melbourne Community Stadium.

 

A 43rd minute Rhys Murphy effort gave the Clarets a half-time lead.

 

And an Adrian Cascaval header in the 72nd minute clinched victory.

 

Third-placed Welling United have clinched their top seven spot barring a mathematical miracle, despite losing 1-0 at Arbour Park to a Slough Town side who are back in the race after today`s results.

 

Billy Clifford`s 71st minute match-winner for the Rebels leaves them three points behind seventh-placed St Albans City with three games remaining.

 

Bath are fifth but also lost, 3-0 at Twerton Park to the Saints, who moved into the play-off places after starting the day in tenth!

 

It was a frustrating afternoon for Bath, who fell behind in the 15th minute to a Clovis Kamdjo effort and then 9 minutes into the second half, Sam Merson doubled the visitors` lead.

 

Ben Wyatt made sure with a third Saints goal 2 minutes into stoppage time.

 

Billericay Town also made a big move from ninth to sixth after winning 4-1 at relegation-threatened Gloucester City.

 

The Tigers led at half-time, thanks to a 17th minute goal from Dejon Noel-Williams.

 

But a poor second half from the hosts saw Charlie Wassmer equalise on the hour-mark, then saw Moses Emmanuel complete a hat-trick in the 65th, 83rd and then 4 minutes into time added on from the spot after a foul by Tom King.

 

Dartford slipped out of the top seven after losing 1-0 at Princes Park to mid-table Chippenham Town.

 

Sub Adriel George`s goal 12 minutes from time hit the Darts play-off hopes.

 

Wealdstone could have moved into sixth had they won against Hampton & Richmond Borough at the Beveree.

 

However, goals from striker Ruel Sotiriou on 24 and 54 minutes proved too much for the Stones, who scored a consolation goal courtesy of Christian Smith in the 65th minute.

 

Concord Rangers dropped from seventh to tenth after losing 1-0 at The Aspect Arena to mid-table Oxford City.

 

Solomon Thomas-Asante`s goal 8 minutes into the second half proved decisive for Oxford and leaves the Beachboys three points behind St Albans but have a crucial game in hand – a replayed game at Truro City.

 

Bottom-markers Weston-super-Mare are just about still alive after a 3-2 vital win in a `six-pointer` at second-bottom East Thurrock United.

 

Top scorer Sam Higgins gave the hosts a 19th minute lead that, crucially, Marlon Jackson levelled right on the stroke of half-time.

 

Tom Llewellyn then gave the Seagulls a 72nd minute lead which Ryan Scott cancelled out 8 minutes later.

 

But a crucial winner came from Weston`s Alex Bray just 2 minutes later.

 

A minute into stoppage time, East Thurrock had Reece Prestedge shown a straight red having allegedly elbowed Jacob Cane in the face.

 

That win leaves Weston still six points adrift of fourth-bottom Truro, who have that game in hand against Concord.

 

The White Tigers moved out of the bottom three on goal difference after they shared a 1-1 draw at Vauxhall Road against Hemel Hempstead Town.

 

The Tudors led through Sanchez Watt`s 22nd minute opener until the 90th minute when Jared Lewington grabbed what could prove to be a vital equaliser for the Cornishmen.

 

Hungerford Town slipped back into the relegation zone after losing 3-1 at Champion Hill to Dulwich Hamlet.

 

Another fine crowd of 2,841 saw the home side practically have the game sewn up by half-time, leading 3-0 with goals from Dan Thompson after 21 minutes, Anthony Cook on 38 minutes and Connor Hunte on 42 minutes.

 

The Crusaders managed to `win` the second period, courtesy of Marvel Ekpiteta`s 80th minute effort, but it was too little too late.
