Torquay United secured their return to the Football League after a two year absence with a 2-0 win over 10 man Cambridge United at Wembley.

The U's dominated in the early stages of the match but the Gulls took the lead with an impressive strike from captain Chris Hargreaves.

Cambridge's problems continued when Phil Bolland was shown a second yellow card for a tacke on Elliot Benyon.

Victory was then sealed for Torquay as Tim Sills' header connected with Danny Stevens' cross.
