MAIDENHEAD United made club history by winning the National League South title this season.

The Magpies secured the title with a 3-0 win away at Margate on Saturday on a day that will go down as one of the best in their 147-year history.

Cheered on by a huge and eye-catching costume clad away contingent, Maidenhead got the goal they deserved in the 14th minute.

With the Margate keeper and wall anticipating Dave Tarpey to take the free-kick, they were caught out as Harry Pritchard ran in and pick out the bottom corner.

With the second-half beginning and just the one goal in it, the Magpies’ players could have been forgiven for showing some nerves.

The reality was far from this as Tarpey, the National League South Player of the Season, had his chip cleared off the line.

Tarpey got the goal his endeavour deserved with 52 minutes gone. With the ball almost glued to his feet in a crowded penalty box he struck low with his left foot and, via a deflection, the ball hit the back of the net to send Maidenhead fans into ecstasy.

It was not long until the vocal travelling contingent were cheering a goal again which came with another slice of fortune.

Pritchard was given too much time 20 yards from goal and the ball took a nick to cannon in and confirm promotion to the National League.

As a conga descended around the pitch, the rest of the game turned into a celebration for the Magpies faithful in what has been a gruelling but unforgettable nine months.

At the final whistle Maidenhead fans poured into the pitch to celebrate with the players and management.

MAIDENHEAD United have agreed a three-year contract extension with manager Alan Devonshire.

Having completed his second season since returning to the club by winning the National League South title, Devonshire will become the first to manage The Magpies in the National League.

Devonshire has agreed a deal with chairman Peter Griffin to extend his contract until the end of the 2019/20 season.

THE BERKS & Bucks decided to postpone the Senior Cup final which was scheduled for Bank Holiday Monday.
