Belper Town were held to an agonising one all draw by New Mills at the Meadows, missing out on a play-off play place on goal difference to Leek Town.
Longstaff scores to keep Belper's play-off dreams alive.
Belper had the best of the play, having a goal disallowed for offside and hitting the woodwork late on.
Longstaff struck after half time finishing the season in good form, and with much of the game left Belper ran New Mills all over the pitch.
But with a sense of inevitablity New Mills scored to create a nail biting finish.
Longstaff hit the bar in the closing minutes as Belper pressed for the win but were left just out of the play-off places after both Sheffield and Leek won.
The Meadows were packed for the final game and the players gave it there all with a fantastic end to the season.
