FC Halifax won the FA Trophy for the second time in seven years with a 1-0 victory over Gateshead at Wembley.

The breakthrough came two minutes before the break, with Gateshead failing to clear their lines and paying the price as the ball hit Jamie Cooke and rebounded into the net.

Gateshead threatened an equaliser shortly after the break when Greg Olley’s corner was headed just wide by Owen Bailey.

Gateshead goalkeeper James Montgomery then kept his side in it by producing a good save to deny Jack Hunter but Town held on to repeat their triumph from 2016.
