WELL that was it. So long Conference football.
It didn't quite end as it was supposed to at Kidderminster with the mid-table side inflicting only Stanley's seventh league loss of the season - but did it matter?
John Coleman, fresh from his team's break in Portugal, chose a weakened Reds side full of players battling for contracts or just getting a welcome run out.
But it didn't spoil a red hot day where the Stanley fans were in good voice for their first trip to Aggborough and the home supporters were happy to cheer their side up the table.
Coleman admitted it was a hard game to get his side motivated for after the chaotic celebrations of the last few weeks.
"For the first hour it was like a pre-season friendly but I wanted to give everyone a run out who had been waiting around," said the boss. "We have to accept all the hard work had been done. We had got the 90 point target we wanted and it has been a great season.
"We had chances and if we had taken them we could have won but we kept going to the end and it is nice the season is now over."
Keeper Danny Alcock got his first league start of the season while defender Andy Tretton made a return. Captain Paul Cook, for his last league game, partnered Mark Boyd in the heart of midfield with Andy Mangan starting alongside David Brown up front and Steve Jagielka was on the wing.
Kidderminster haven't had the best of seasons as they were hoping to bounce straight back into the league but they will be hopeful their boss, former Burnley player Mark Yates, can turn it around next season.
After being the better side in the first half, Kiddie scored their first goal three minutes after the re-start. Sub Michael McGrath got a cross in from the right and Lee Thompson flicked the ball home at the near post.
And Luke Reynolds made it two eight minutes later, hitting the post with his first attempt but managing to force the ball over the line after Thompson had set him up.
Stanley did then show some urgency with Gary Roberts chipping the outrushing Daniel Lewis but the ball landed on the top of the net. And Mangan, when clean through, blasted low but wide with his first time shot as the Reds failed to score for only the second league game this season.
A win could have taken Stanley to 94 points - just one off Yeovil's record tally - but the record books say what matters, Accrington Stanley won the Conference.
Now any relaxation is over and Coleman admits it now gets serious. "There is a lot of work to do in the summer with training plans and signings and we start now," he said.
