Annan Athletic 1-1 Montrose
Montrose finished the season outside the Scottish Third Division's play-off zone after being held to a draw by Annan Athletic.
The visitors needed to win, Berwick Rangers to lose and a substantial swing in goal difference to clinch fourth spot.
Scott Johnston curled in from the edge of the area to give Montrose a 24th-minute lead.
But Annan drew level through Michael Daly's low shot 13 minutes into the second half.
And though Berwick lost against Rangers, Montrose could not find the goals they needed.
