Cambridge United promoted back to The Football League

18 May 2014

?Cambridge United have been promoted back to The Football League after a 2-1 victory against Gateshead in the Conference Play-Off Final at Wembley Stadium.

The U's finished second in the table and overcame Halifax 2-1 over two legs in the semi-finals to set up a promotion showdown with the Heed, who got the better of Grimsby Town in the semis.

After a goalless first half in the Final at the national stadium, Richard Money's men went 2-0 up with goals from Liam Hughes and Ryan Donaldson.

Gateshead got a goal back through Jack Lester, which set up a nervy finish, but the U's held on to end their nine-year exile from The League.
