The picture for the 2019-20 'Motorama' National League season became clear for Wrexham AFC this afternoon after the promotion play-offs came to a close. 

Today officially draws a line under 2018-19 and we can now have a look at what has happened. 

Who's leaving the National League?

Congratulations to Leyton Orient and Salford City who have both secured promotion to EFL 2.

Orient of course secured promotion as champions while Salford beat AFC Fylde 3-0 yesterday at Wembley Stadium in the play-off final. 

Also leaving the league but as a result of relegation are Aldershot Town, Braintree Town, Havant & Waterlooville and Maidstone United. 

Who is joining the National League?

Relegated from EFL League Two are Yeovil Town and Notts County.  

Promoted as champtions from the National League North are Stockport County while Torquay United join us as National League South champions. 

The play-off finals from the North and South were contested earlier and Woking beat Welling United 1-0 in the Southern play-off final to gain promotion to the National League. 

In the North, extra-time was required which still didn't separate the sides. Chorley were promoted to the National League by winning a penalty shoot-out 4-3 against Spennymoor Town. 

Mileage the team will need to travel next season?

The way promotion and relegation has fallen is slightly kinder to us this year. 

Wrexham AFC's team bus supplied by Pat's Coaches will need to travel around 7,258 miles, round trips, to away grounds next season. This will be around 792 miles less than last season.

This is roughly the equivalent of flying from Wrexham to Hawaii!! 

Closest Game? 

The closest game for us next season is a trip to Stockport County, some 51 miles away. 

Far, Far Away? 

It's still Dover, 265 miles away... which is closer to France than Wales. Not a Tuesday, pretty please...
