6:02 And there it is. Grimsby Town are playoff champions. They will be competing in League Two next season, with Solihull Moors forced to stay in the National League. Bitter disappointment for the Moors, but an incredible comeback from Grimsby is enough to secure promotion.

5:50 What a match we've had today. Unbelievable scenes in the Grimsby end, with supporters sharing the joy with their newly crowned playoff final winners. Trophy presentation on its way.


Full-time GRIMSBY ARE BACK IN THE FOOTBALL LEAGUE AT THE FIRST TIME OF ASKING WHAT AN ACHIEVEMENT FOR THE MARINERS

120' Fox goes into the book for Grimsby. He was awarded the sponsors' Man of the Match award moments before. Seconds left for Grimsby to hold on.

112' Is that Maguire-Drew goal the one that sends Grimsby back into the Football League at the first time of asking?

WHAT IT MEANS!!! ⚫⚪ 2 - 1 🟡🔵 #GTFC https://t.co/st3kU1j4Xg
240 2

111' What an impact Maguire-Drew has made since coming on. He's alive to the melee inside the Solihull box to poke home a precious goal!

111' THERE IT IS GRIMSBY LEAD WHAT UNFILTERED SCENES IN EAST LONDON

106' Off we go again then. These two sides will need to be separated somehow. Will it be in extra time, or on penalties?


Half-time Still level at half-time in extra time. Pretty eventless first period with neither side looking to over-commit.

105' One additional minute at the end of extra time.

101' Abrahams coming on for Grimsby. Holohan the man he replaces. 1-1.

92' A strong header from Waterfall denies a tap-in opportunity at the back post for two Solihull forwards.

91' We're away in extra-time at the London Stadium. All to play for in these next 30 minutes. 1-1.


Full-time That's that for regulation time. This playoff final is heading to extra-time. It's the third time in two weeks Grimsby have played an extra 30 minutes. Can they prevail once again?

90+1' That's the end of the game for McAtee. He's replaced by Arjan Raikhy.

90' A huge roar around the London Stadium as the fourth official announces there will be a minimum of SIX additional minutes at the end of the 90 minutes. Time for a winner?

87' What a chance for Grimsby! Maguire-Drew flashes a ball across the face of goal, but a sliding McAtee is unable to connect at the back-post. 1-1.

84' Gudger almost gives Solihull the lead again, but the Moors player is unable to direct Boyes free-kick goalwards.

81' Substitution for Grimsby. Taylor off, Dieseruvwe on. 1-1.

80' Yellow card for Storer. The first of the game. Feels like this match is on a little bit of a knife-edge right now.

75' Equalising hasn't exactly done Grimsby the world of good, with a couple of shaky moments at the back almost opening the door for a Solihull second. A last-ditch tackle from Holohan denies the Moors a certain goalscoring opportunity.

72' Well, well, well, how very nearly we came to another Solihull goal. Sbarra once again with the cross, but Dallas' header creeps over the Grimsby crossbar. Heart in mouth moment for the Town.

68' Turns out Hurst does know what he's doing, as Maguire-Drew's dummy opens up space in behind for McAtee, whose composed finish gives Grimsby a deserved equaliser.

68' GOAL! GRIMSBY ARE LEVEL! McAtee with the equaliser that sends the travelling Grimsby supporters into absolute ecstacy.

66' Paul Hurst isn't happy with his side's contributions. He's also turning to his bench, with Maguire-Drew replacing Sousa. Interesting change, as Sousa has been causing Solihull all sorts of problems down the right-hand side.

58' First substitution of the afternoon and it's the leaders who blink first. Neal Ardley turning to his bench with Newton coming on to replace the injured Hudlin.

53' Day of mixed emotions for Hudlin. He could be the man to send Solihull into the EFL, but he won't half have some bruises to show for it. This time it's the head of the Moors forward needing treatment.

51' Grimsby just about starting to click into the gear. The first real contribution from midfield maestro John McAtee sees a rasping effort graze the upper region of the crossbar. 1-0 to Solihull.

49' Lively start to this second half. Clifton AGAIN at the heart of things for Grimsby. It's his leg that almost directs home an equaliser, but it just rolls wide of the far post. Let off for Solihull.

46' We're away in the second half at the London Stadium. Solihull carrying over that 1-0 advantage from the first half, with a place in the Football League on the line.


4:05 Players returning out from the tunnel ahead of the second half. Let us know if you think Solihull will hang on, or if Grimsby will find a route back into the game over on our Twitter at @Nonleaguenews.

3:55 From one big man to another. A certain Peter Crouch had something to say about Hudlin's 'robot' celebration.

3:53 As simple as that really. Ball into the box for the big man to head home. Football's a simple game sometimes.

Great header, terrible robot celebration 😂 Kyle Hudlin puts @SolihullMoors ahead in @TheVanaramaNL play-off final at London Stadium! Have a word, @petercrouch... https://t.co/OmwAh2NkLY

Half-time Wow, what a first half. It's Solihull who lead at the break against Grimsby, with the Moors now just 45 minutes away from a place in the Football League. Hudlin's goal deep into stoppage time gives Neal Ardley's side the advantage.

45+1' After all the missed chances, it's a routine move that gives Solihull the lead. Sbarra's cross is planted into the box, where all 6"7in of Hudlin is there to nod it home. 1-0 to Solihull on the brink of half-time.

45+1' GOAL! SOLIHULL! And there it is. Just when it looked as if the two sides would be level at the break, Solihull have found an opener through Kyle Hudlin!

45' One additional minute at the end of a pulsating first half.

38' Just feel like one of these sides is going to find a goal before the break. It's Clifton again for Grimsby, who meets Sousa's cross, but can only blaze over the crossbar. Really should've scored from that effort. No excuses there!

34' Stoppage in play here at the London Stadium. Amos (no not me!) comes across and takes a chunk out of Hudlin with a sliding tackle. The Solihull striker is now receiving treatment.

28' Best chance of the match so far. Andrew Dallas races through on goal with just the keeper to beat, but the Solihull forward fails in his attempt, with Crocombe standing tall to his effort.

23' Clifton at the heart of all things positive for Grimsby right now. Having won the free kick himself, he demands the fall from the restart, but a rash effort sails harmlessly wide. Plenty of chances in this game for either side.

14' Chance for Solihull! It's that man Howe again, who towers over the Grimsby defence to meet Sbarra's corner, but the defender can only knock his header wide. 0-0.

10' Reporters curse it seems. After that early frenzy in the opening five or so minutes, the game has died down with both teams happy to enjoy sustained spells of possession.

6' Well it seems like we've got a right contest here in East London this afternoon. Grimsby this time coming close, with a stray leg from Solihull forward Hudlin calling his own goalkeeper McDonnell into action. Still 0-0, but a very lively affair.

5' It's been all Solihull in the early exchanges at the London Stadium. Andrew Dallas is causing havoc for the Grimsby defence, with his namesake Andrew Smith providing a covering tackle to thwart the attack.

2' Very early chance for Solihull Moors. A whipped corner finds Howe inside the box, but his effort is blocked on the line. Bright start from the Moors,

Kick-off And we're away in this season's National League playoff final. Both sides in their traditional home kits, with Grimsby kicking from left to right, and Solihull right to left. Game on!


14:55 Players have emerged from the tunnel, with handshakes and the national anthem to come before kick off.

14:01 Here we go then, the teams are in. Kicking things off with Solihull Moors who name an unchanged team for the playoff final.

13:51 As for Solihull, their route to the London Stadium was much more conventional, with the Moors qualifying for the semi-finals by virtue of their third-place finish. Despite going behind, Solihull saw off Chesterfield with relative ease, beating the Derbyshire side 3-1 at Damson Park.

13:46 While we wait for team news at the London Stadium, let's take a look at how both sides made it to this point, starting with Grimsby Town. It's been quite the playoff journey for Paul Hurst's side, after a dramatic extra-time victory over Notts County in the eliminators set up an unfavourable tie against big-hitters Wrexham. In one of the games of the season, Grimsby triumphed as 6-5 winners AET, booking their place in the final.
