The biggest shock came at League Two Colchester United, with non-league side Marine knocking them out on penalties, after drawing 1-1.

The NPL Division One North West side took the lead through Anthony Miley in the 21st minute before Harry Pell got one back for the U’s in the second half.

Marine then stepped up and came away from Colchester, winning 5-3 in the shootout, cue scenes!

National League side Stockport County pulled off a 2-1 victory against League One club Rochdale, and one of their goals was simply stunning.

Wayne Rooney’s brother John scored from within his own half to put the Hatters one up after five minutes, looking up inside his own half, spotting the ‘keeper off his line and executed it.

Stockport went 2-0 up shortly after, a corner was cleared as far as Connor Jennings on the edge of the area, he got the ball on his left foot and hit a low shot which was flying wide, but Alex Reid was there to turn it home from close range.

Rochdale got one back on the 24th minute, Matty Lund with a header from close range. However, Stockport held on for the win and booked a place in the next round.

Swindon Town, another team that tends to get knocked out by a non-league club in the FA Cup, did just that this weekend.

This time it was National League North side Darlington who had former Newcastle player Adam Campbell to thank, scoring twice, either side of Swindon’s leveller with Brett Pitman tapping in.

National League Dagenham hit Ian Holloway’s Grimsby of League Two for three. Scott Wilson putting the Daggers one up after 9 minutes.

Windsor scored from the spot to level the tie. Dagenham’s Justham guessed the right way but couldn’t keep the spot-kick out on the 60th minute.

Scott Wilson got his second goal for the club on the 90th minute, before Mitch Brundle scored from his spot-kick in the 96th minute to secure Dagenham’s place in the second round.

A non league upset now and Canvey Island of the eighth tier have knocked out a level above in Banbury United.

It was all thanks to Hubble (23′) and Ronto (71′) – scoring either side of Johnson’s 68th minute equaliser and put the Essex side into the next stage of the competition.

King’s Lynn Town, the National League newcomers and in the First Round Proper for the first time ever, got a late winner to knock out Port Vale of League Two.

On the 82nd minute, Adam Marriott produced the most incredible footwork in the box and his effort fell to Sonny Carey who smashed the ball in from close range.

A surprise between two EFL sides saw League Two Mansfield, who this week appointed Nigel Clough but for today saw caretaker boss Richard Cooper in charge, produce a 1-0 win against League One side Sunderland, a team many non-league clubs wanted.

Gordon whipped in a wonderful cross and George Lapslie headed home to send the Stags into the second round and pick up their first win in 15 games in all competitions this season.
