Maidstone United fans celebrated today as the club all-but secured the Ryman League title.
The Stones drew 0-0 with Dulwich Hamlet this afternoon which means Hendon would need to make up some 19 goals and six points in their last two matches to reach Maidstone.
The Stones will go into National League South, as it will be known next season.
Reading boss Steve Clarke told us his side were going to have to play the perfect game here today and for much of the game they did just that - more organised and more resolute throughout.
They looked like a side determined to put themselves in the history books. Only a stroke of Sanchez class gave Arsenal the edge before the break and when Garath McCleary equalised the Royals looked to be on the brink of a famous giant killing.
Any part Federici played in Arsenal's eventual winner was instantly forgiven by fans and teammates alike. He is so often the difference for a Reading side that today made Arsenal look like the underdogs.
Sir John Madejski has spoken of his pride, as Reading more than matched their Premier League opponent Arsenal.
The Reading Chairman was quick to leave the stands and address the team in the dressing room where he described the mood as sombre.
I am immensely proud of the manager and every one of those players.
I am also incredibly proud of our fans. Each and every one of them played their part here today. This has been the most wonderful day for everyone in the Thames Valley.
Reading left nothing on the pitch in a valiant effort to reach the FA Cup final. An extra-time winner from Sanchez sealed the Royals' fate.Read the full story ›
