Burton promoted to League Two

Published Add your comment

Burton have been promoted to the Football League for the first time in their history despite a 2-1 defeat to Torquay on the final day of the season.

Cambridge's failure to beat Altrincham ensured the Brewers - who were managed by Nigel Clough until he left for Derby in January - have been crowned Blue Square Premier champions.

The Us have to settle for a place in the play-offs, where they will face Stevenage over two legs, while Torquay will meet Histon in the other tie.
