NPL Playoffs

Postby Ian Livesey » Tue Apr 26, 2016 11:01 pm

Semi-Final results
Salford 3-1 Ashton United (AET)
Blyth 3-4 Workington

Final :
Salford v Workington

Harsh on Blyth that, 1st or 2nd most of the season and lose to a 90th minute winner for a team who only got into the playoffs the last league game of the season

Agreed, Ian. It reminds us of the year we went up from First Division NPL via play-offs after Fylde in the semi had knocked out Skelmersdale who had finished well clear of the rest in second place and only lost the title to Chester by the narrowest of margins. A correspondent to the Non-League Paper last Sunday made an interesting point: Why not give the second-placed club a bye to the final and extend the play-offs to sixth place to allow clubs finishing 3rd - 6th a semi-final shoot-out? A fair suggestion, perhaps.

Or maybe (M = Match)
(Tue) M1: 5th v 6th
(Sat) M2: 2nd v 3rd (winner to Final, loser to M4)
(Sat) M3: 4th v M1 winner
(Tue M4: M2 loser v M3 winner
(Sat) Final: M2 winner v M4 winner

Five teams, five matches and 2nd & 3rd get two cracks at getting to the final.
