The first weekend in September will feature Spalding United, Deeping Rangers and Holbeach United in the Emirates FA Cup first qualifying round.

They all won preliminary round ties on Saturday to pick up £1,925 prize money on the road to Wembley.

Summer signings Bradley Wells (2) and Andy Wright got the Tulips’ second-half goals at Bury Town to book a trip to Mickleover Sports.

Boss Dave Frecklington said: “It was a great performance, particularly in the second half against a good footballing Bury team.

“We did well to hold them off against a fierce wind in the first half and then virtually took them apart with some excellent play after the break.

“We set out our tactics during the break and these were executed superbly. I’m dead chuffed.”

Scott Mooney’s double earned a 2-1 home win for Rangers over Ryman League club Wroxham.

In the next round Deeping will face Gresley at the Haydon Whitham Stadium.

Manager Michael Goode said: “We are all absolutely delighted.

“It feels like a bit of weight off our shoulders simply because our form has not been brilliant.

“In the first half we were the better side and we created good chances.

“It was a very poor goal to give away to make it 1-1 but we puffed out our chests and went on to win it.

“The performance had a bit of everything – quality football, two clinical finishes from Scott Mooney and robust defending around the 18-yard box when we had our backs to the wall in the second half.”

The Tigers must wait for Tuesday night’s replay between Yaxley and Dereham Town to discover their hosts.

Holbeach held on for a 4-3 victory at Kirkley & Pakefield having gone 4-0 up through Josh Ford (2), Spencer Tinkler and Tyler Wright.

Boss Tom Roberts said: “We built up a good lead and then just stopped doing the basics.

“We looked comfortable but we got complacent and took our foot off the gas.”

Meanwhile, Bourne Town went down 4-1 at home to Woodford United in UCL Division One after a first-half equaliser from Kai Willerton.

Moulton Harrox came out on top in the big ChromaSport & Trophies Peterborough League Premier Divison clash.

The reigning champions visited table-topping Ketton and ran out 2-1 winners thanks to first-half goals by Billy King and Martin Sandall.
