Sandal can look forward to playing in National 2 North next season after defeating Hinckley in the promotion play-off.

The Milnthorpe Green side put the disappointment of missing out on the National 3 North title behind them with a 20-10 home victory over the Midlanders on Saturday.

Hinckley, who finished second in National 3 Midlands, couldn’t overhaul the hosts who achieved promotion thanks to Joe Allott’s try, four goals from Mark Pease and a penalty from James Ellar.
