FOOTBALL: FC United crashed out of the FA Trophy, despite a late fightback by Harrogate Town.

Craig James, Rory Coleman and Adam Novakowski put the Yorkshire side into a three-goal lead after just 52 minutes in front of more than 1,100 fans at Gigg Lane.

Simon Carden hit a quickfire brace in the last 10 minutes to ensure a frenetic finale, but Karl Marginson’s men had left themselves too much to do.

Radcliffe Borough were beaten 2-1 by Prescot Cables in UniBond League Division One North.

Aaron Rey and Phil Cooney had given the visitors a first-half lead, and Jody Banim’s strike two minutes from time proved a mere consolation.
