Boreham Wood and Stockport County join National League North team Chorley, who beat Peterborough and eighth-tier Marine, who scored a 120th-minute winner to shock 10-man Havant and Waterlooville.

The 32 winning clubs at this stage collecting £82,000 from the competition’s prize fund.

National League North club Chorley managed to knock out League One high flyers Peterborough United in an FA Cup shock on Saturday.

The Magpies trailed 1-0 at the break but goals from Connor Hall and Lewis Baines have seen Jamie Vermiglio’s side pull off another upset.

Posh, who sit second in the League One table, put out a strong side, and they had reached the third round in 13 of the past 14 seasons.

Connor Hall notched the equaliser for the non league club, before Lewis Baines put the Magpies ahead shortly afterwards.

The visitors then missed a penalty, but progressed to the third round anyway – adding Peterborough the the first-round scalp of Wigan Athletic.

Unbelievably, Darren Ferguson’s side were second best for much of the game.

Vermiglio, whose club were relegated from the National League last season after winning just four of their 38 games, said: “It’s a monumental achievement that we can treasure and I’m a very proud man.

“It wasn’t lucky either. What a performance we produced after going behind so early on.

“Technically we were good, tactically we were good and the set-pieces were absolutely on point, but we also had the heart, spirit and endeavour you need to get through an FA Cup tie in abundance.

“We had a good sing-song in the dressing room after the game and I’m sure we’ll celebrate on the coach home. It’s a long journey anyway but we might get the driver to go round the block a few times too.

“The boys have written themselves a piece of history that no-one can ever take away and it’s fantastic after what we’ve been through as a club over the last 12 months.”

A deserved mention also for Marine who also make it through to the next round, from the eighth tier and knocking out Havant & Waterlooville to face a Premier League club in Tottenham at home. What a dream.
