Joe Govett’s conversion won the game, with the very last kick of a campaign which began eight months ago.

Speaking after the match, Smith said: “The boys have been fantastic all season and everyone has put the effort in.

“We started off this season and we said we wanted to get promoted. That was the main thing, that was the objective.”
