Airdrieonians defeated in play-off final

Queen's Park beat Airdrieonians 2-1 after extra time in the second leg of the cinch Championship play-off final on Sunday afternoon to secure a 3-2 aggregate victory.

Neil Doncaster, SPFL chief executive, said: “We would all like to send our warmest congratulations to everyone connected with Queen’s Park on winning the cinch Championship play-off final.

“It is a hugely impressive achievement to win two consecutive promotions, and we look forward to welcoming them to the cinch Championship for the first time since season 1982/83.

“We would also like to send our commiserations to everyone at Airdrieonians, who helped made this year’s cinch Championship play-offs such a compelling advert for the Scottish game.”
