Fleetwood United have won promotion to the UAE Second Division following a sensational play-off victory against Sport Support on Sunday evening.

The Dubai based sister club of Fleetwood Town will now play fellow promotion winners Gulf United on Friday evening for the Championship trophy.

It’s an incredible feat for the club who are in their first ever season after being founded less than a year ago by Town chairman Andy Pilley, who had flown over to Dubai with CEO Steve Curwood to witness the promotion first hand.

Goals from Samuel Njangui and Malick Ndiaye sealed a 2-1 win on the night and a 4-2 aggregate victory in the end-of-season play-offs after the side topped Group B of the UAE Third Division.

And they will now face Gulf United, managed by former Newcastle United skipper Steven Taylor, on Friday evening to compete for the league title.

Full details of the game will be announced in due course.
