Champions Wigginton will now ply their trade in the premier division after an absence of several years from the elite tier.
The squad routed hosts Queens Halifax 5-0 to wrap up their promotion challenge in style.
Mackenzie Nichol, playing at number five, beat Halifax’s Craig Talbot 3-1 before team manager Ian Tooms overcame David Boothroyd by the same scoreline.
Wigginton’s in-form youngster Tom Pepper played third in the order and routed Martin Sunderland 3-0 in a battling encounter.
Captain Jon Duffield also put in a strong performance to brush aside Halifax veteran Graham Jackson 3-0 before Wiggy’s number one seed Simon Myring put a gloss on the whitewash with a 3-0 victory over Luke Haigh.
Wigginton took the championship with a game in hand and manager Tooms praised his side’s commitment.
He said: “It’s been a great team effort from all the lads and it’s a pleasure to see youngsters like Pepper and Nichol breaking into the team and winning.”
