The FA Cup took a backseat to The FA Carlsberg Trophy on Saturday, with 36 ties up and down the country in the Second Round Qualifying.

Teams need to negotiate just one more qualifying round before the Football League's big names come calling - but Radcliffe Borough will need win their replay with Worksop Town to reach that stage after the sides drew 1-1 in Saturday's early kick-off.

Radcliffe were indebted to Dave Sherlock, whose penalty snatched a draw to set up a replay at Worksop this Wednesday.

Chippenham Town and Mangotsfield will also have to do it all again as the sides played out an entertaining 1-1 draw.

Northwich Victoria are there, though, as they cruised to a 3-0 win over Buxton and Joe Francis was among the scorers as Lowestoft beat Hitchin Town 3-1 away from home.

Billericay Town beat St. Neots Town 2-0 and Chester also advanced with the same scoreline as they beat Stafford Rangers, while Brackley Town beat Hemel Hempstead Town 3-2 away from home.

Elsewhere, FC United battled to a 1-1 draw at Durham City and the teams will face each other in a replay.
