Barrow are heading back to the Football League for the first time in 48 years after National League clubs voted to decide final standings on an unweighted points-per-game basis.

The decision, confirmed by a majority vote on Wednesday, sees Barrow confirmed as champions of the National League, with King’s Lynn winning the National League North and Wealdstone the National League South.

The vote, which is subject to FA council approval, will also see the end-of-season play-offs take place.

Harrogate and Notts County, as the clubs second and third, go into the National League play-off semi-finals. Yeovil, Boreham Wood, Halifax and Barnet will participate in the quarter-finals.

The play-offs must start by 18 July and finish by 30 July, with teams made to pay for the testing of all players and staff, as well as the net costs of staging games. Testing is expected to cost about £100,000.
