Championship Conference

The New Saints 3-3 Cardiff Metropolitan University: TNS drew with the students at Park Hall having wrapped up their 12th league title five weeks ago.

The points were also shared the last time the two side's met in March.

The students ended a poor run of form last weekend with a 4-3 victory over Bala, and finished sixth in the table.

Bala Town 1-2 Bangor City: Bangor City's time in Welsh football's top flight ended with a defiant win at Bala that saw them finish second.

Bangor were due battle it out with Connah's Quay for the automatic Europa League spot, but instead will be playing their football in the Cymru Alliance League in 2018-19 after being refused a Welsh Premier League licence by the Football Association of Wales.

The Lakesiders on the other hand were guaranteed a fourth-place finish despite a poor run of form, and will go into a play-off for the remaining Europa League place.

Cefn Druids 2-0 Connah's Quay Nomads: Unlike Bangor, Connah's Quay won their appeal for a Welsh Premier League licence and are now guaranteed to qualify for the Europa League next season.

Druids' win at The Rock saw them finish fifth as Cardiff Met failed to beat TNS.
