07/05/17 FC Halifax Town 1-1 Salford City (FC Halifax Town win 3-0 on penalties)
No goals could split the teams in 90 minutes so extra time or penalties would have to settle teams. On the 96th minute in extra time it was that man again Richard Peniket’s bullet header gave the Shaymen the lead. Salford fought back though and got their equaliser in the second period of extra time through Nottingham. Penalties would have to settle the two sides and the Shaymen only went and done it. Winning 3-0 on penalties as Salford couldn’t convert a penalty and the Shaymen went into the play-off final and ended up beating Chorley to get promoted to the National League!
