It was heartbreak for U's fans though, who also fell at the same hurdle to Exeter last year. Captain and 37 year-old Chris Hargreaves and striker Tim Sills netted for Torquay who spent 80 years in the league before losing their status in 2007.
Meanwhile, as the Millers signed Kevin Ellison this week, his old club Chester went into administration following their relegation.
A statement said: "After discussions with owner Stephen Vaughan, Chester entered voluntary administration in order to safeguard the club's future."
City could start next season on minus 10 points. Similar sanctions regarding clubs in administration apply in the Conference as they do in the Football League, so the points penalty seems likely.
Elsewhere, ahead of the League's play off final between Shrewsbury and Gillingham on 23rd May, the Shrews have ordered an extra 4,000 tickets to take their allocation over 25,000.
In the transfer market Lee Frecklington completed his move from Lincoln to Championship outfit Peterborough after the 23 year-old had been on loan at Posh, Rochdale told 10 of their playing staff they could leave Spotland, including winger Kallum Higginbotham and forward Lee Thorpe.
Barnet boss Ian Hendon also released four of his squad, but there was good news for Notts County's Ben Fairclough and Aldershot pair Scott Donnelly and Michael Jaimez who all agreed new terms with their clubs but Dave Brammer's Port Vale future seems uncertain.
As we enter a new week, the managers job at Chesterfield is still vacant, with the club confirming it's received over 40 applications thus far including strong interest from Gainsborough management duo Steve Blatherwick and David Reeves.
Reevs told BBC Radio Sheffield: "We'd love an interview if truth be known. It would be great to go back.
"We'd probably bring someone we know with loads of experience."
