David Beckham and fellow Manchester United legends watched their Salford City team win promotion to the Football League for the first time in their history.

Co-owners Beckham, Gary and Phil Neville, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Ryan Giggs saw their side win promotion to Sky Bet League Two after beating Fylde 3-0 in the National League play-off final at Wembley.

The "Class of 92" legends - who were team-mates at Old Trafford that year and won a cabinet of trophies - jumped out of their seats when their team made a dream start to the final with an Emmanuel Dieseruvwe goal on 14 minutes.

Salford doubled their lead eight minutes after half-time when Carl Piergianni charged into the box and leapt high to head home an Ibou Touray corner.

Touray went from provider to goalscorer a few minutes later when his attempted cross in the 60th minute flew straight into the back of the net, ending Fylde's chances of mounting a comeback.

Fylde players' heads dropped after the third goal with Salford fans turning the final 20 minutes into a party atmosphere.

The Nevilles joined up with Scholes, Butt and Giggs to take control of the Ammies in 2014.

Beckham then bought into Salford in January, when he purchased a 10% stake.

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

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

He later tweeted a picture of the owners and thanked the players, staff and fans.

Salford join National League champions Leyton Orient and runners-up Solihull Moors in Sky Bet League Two next season following their automatic promotions.
