David Beckham and fellow Manchester United legends Gary Neville, Paul Schoes, Ryan Giggs and Nicky Butt watched on as their Salford City side clinched promotion to England's League Two for the first time.

The club, owned by the former Manchester United greats and Singaporean businessman Peter Lim , beat Fylde 3-0 at Wembley on Saturday in the National League play-off final.

With Beckham, Giggs, Butt and the Neville brothers watching on from the stands, Salford went ahead 15 minutes in when Emmanuel Dieseruvwe capitalised on a failed clearance.

Carl Piergianni doubled the advantage after the break and Ibou Touray's cross deceived Fylde goalkeeper Jay Lynch and went in off the post just eight minutes later.

Fylde could not find a response, allowing Salford to celebrate a place in League Two in 2019-20 with a fourth promotion in five years under their famous owners.

"It is tough, but we have done it and we are so proud and delighted," Gary Neville said after the match.

"Five years ago we had 180 fans, now we have got a few thousand here, so it is amazing."
