Nuneaton Town grabbed the final play-off spot while Hinckley United's relegation was confirmed after the final round of Blue Square Bet North fixtures.
Nuneaton were under pressure from sixth-placed Stalybridge Celtic heading into the weekend, but managed to secure play-off football with a 3-2 win at relegated Blyth Spartans.
Wayne Phillips (4) opened the scoring for the hosts but the scores were level only a minute later as James Armson made it 1-1. Simon Forsdick (30) gave Boro the lead before Joe Kendrick (33) responded for the Spartans, but it was Danny Glover (37) who clinched the win for the visiting side.
Hinckley failed to lift themselves out of the bottom three as they suffered a 4-2 defeat at Stalybridge, who missed out on the play-offs despite the win.
The Knitters were in front thanks to Chris Lynch's own goal in the 24th minute, but strikes from Stephen Brogan (27), Greg Wilkinson (45) and Dennis Sheriff (53) gave the hosts a 3-1 lead. Craig Farrell (65) closed the gap before Stephen Brogan (75) scored Celtic's fourth.
FC Halifax Town ensured their place in the top five with a 2-1 win over Solihull Moors.
Lee Gregory (39) and Sean Clancy (50) put the Shaymen two goals clear before a consolation goal from Moors' Craig Hinton (pen 72).
Gainsborough Trinity finished the season in fourth place after a 3-2 win at Altrincham.
Nicky Clee (34) and Duncan Watmore (43) were on target for the Robins, but a hat-trick from Leon Mettam (14, 45, 73) secured all three points for the visitors.
Corby Town staved off the drop despite a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Harrogate Town at Steel Park.
The Sulphurites overwhelmed the hosts as Richard Pell (45, 71), Paul Bolland (52), Jonny Allan (86) and Tom Platt (90) wore out Corby's net.

A first-half demolition saw Colwyn Bay cruise past Gloucester City 4-2 at Llanelian Road.
Rob Hopley (3), Fraser McLachlan (17), Gareth Evans (18) and John McKenna (44) gave the Seagulls a 4-0 lead at the break, before Darren Edwards (72, 90) bagged a brace for City.
Workington made sure they avoided the bitter taste of relegation as they edged out Worcester City 1-0 at St George's Lane.
The teams were still deadlocked at 0-0 at the break, but Jordon Connerton hit the winning strike in the 75th minute to seal the deal.
Bishop's Stortford provided some entertainment for their home support on the last day as they pole-axed Eastwood Town 4-0 at Croft Park.
Sebastian Dunbar (10) kicked off the festivities early on, but it was Dwight Gayle (59, 73, pen 77) who was the main attraction with his second-half hat-trick.
Boston United held second-placed Guiseley to a 3-3 draw at York Street to end the season in 11th place.
Spencer Weir-Daley (15) and Marc Newsham (42) put the Pilgrims in control at the break, but Chris Senior (54) pulled one back after the interval. James Reed (71) made it 3-1 to the hosts before Senior (78) netted his second and Matthew Wilson (87) equalised.
