Exeter avenged last season's play-off final heartbreak with victory over Cambridge at Wembley yesterday to earn promotion to the Football League after a five-year absence.

City lost 2-1 to Morecambe at the same stage last season but Rob Edwards' first-half header ensured their second visit to England's showcase stadium was a successful one.

Edwards stooped low at the far post to head home after a near-post flick from Dean Moxey's inswinging corner in the 22nd minute.

Moxey's set-pieces always provided a threat while at the other end Cambridge created little to test goalkeeper Paul Jones despite enjoying the lion's share of possession.
