Bristol staged a second-half comeback to beat Chelsea 36-32 in the South League play-offs, and gain promotion to the National League South.
The West-country side trailed 16-18 at half time. However, they turned things around after the break, thanks in no small part to Gregory Pawelczyk, who weighed in with 15 goals. Karim Seralsi also made an important contribution with a number of saves.
Nelson Olivera top scored for Chelsea, beating the keeper nine times.
