Toolstation NCEL Premier Division side Staveley Miners Welfare advanced to the First Preliminary Round of the Emirates FA Cup-and a home tie with Lincoln United, after a battling 2-0 win over Hallam at Sandygate yesterday.
It was a cracking tie watched by another fine crowd of 304 with absolutely nothing in the game entering the final few minutes.

First, Hallam striker Jordan Turner went desperately close with a far post header after a terrific right-wing cross; then the Trojans raced up the other end for substitute Kurtis Morley to strike from close range after a goalmouth scramble.
