MARK Molesley secured back-to-back promotions as Weymouth boss after edging past Dartford in the National South play-off final.

It took a penalty shoot-out to separate the sides after a goalless 90 minutes at Bob Lucas Stadium, where the Terras prevailed 3-0 with Dartford missing the target with all their spot kicks.

Molesley, who also works as under-21s assistant manager at Cherries, will now lead Weymouth into the National League, the top tier of non-league football, for the first time in 11 years.

Weymouth named four Cherries loanees in their starting XI in Brennan Camp, Calum Ward, Jaidon Anthony and Shaun Hobson with goalkeeper Ward alert to keep the score goalless just before the first-half drinks break.

Terras then had a strong penalty shout waved away as Calvin Brooks went down in the box, before Ward was again called into action to thwart Molesley's former Cherries team-mate Charlie Sheringham.

Substitute Ben Thomson almost provided the breakthrough on the hour mark, but was denied by stopper AJ Sesay with penalties needed to separate the two sides.

Weymouth took the initiative from the first kick with Tom Whelan tucking in, before former Arsenal youngster Jack Jebb fired over the bar for the visitors.

Jake McCarthy doubled the home side's advantage, with Darren McQueen following Jebb's struggles.

Cherries youngster Jaidon Anthony made no mistake for the Terras and the win was sealed when Afghanistan international Noor Husin also failed to test Ward from the spot.

Weymouth: Ward, Camp, Harfield, Ngalo (Murray, 53), Hobson, McCarthy, Wakefield (Odubade, 85), Robinson (Whelan, 70), Brooks, McQuoid (Thomson, 53), Anthony.

Unused subs: Childs, Zubar.
