AFC Telford United 1-1 Kidderminster Harriers

New Bucks Head Stadium
AFC Telford have been relegated after just one season in the Conference

AFC Telford's relegation from the Conference was confirmed as they could only draw at home to Kidderminster.

The Bucks, who needed to win their final five games to stand any survival chance, took a second-half lead as Tony Gray headed in Adam Farrell's cross.

But the visitors levelled when a mistake from Sean Clancy allowed Callum Gittings to slot home late on.

Danny Ventre then almost claimed a dramatic win for the hosts, but his fierce shot was saved by Danny Lewis.

Relegation for Steve Kittrick's men means they have only spent one campaign in the Conference, having come up as champions from Conference North last season.

They were also relegated back to Conference North on Easter Saturday two seasons ago, when they lost to another fellow Midlands side, Nuneaton Town.external-link
