Desborough Town booked their place in the preliminary round of the FA Cup thanks to a 3-1 success over Oadby Town at the S6 Stadium.

The ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League Premier Division side had too much for their Division One opponents and Will Arnold gave Ar Tarn a half-time lead.

Paul Caswell marked his Desborough debut with the second and Michael Byrne added the third to end the contest.

Zak Winstone did pull a goal back for Oadby but they finished with 10 men after Ashley Harris saw red.

The three other local UCL Premier Division clubs will all try again on Tuesday night after securing draws in their respective extra preliminary round matches.

There was a remarkable finish at the Dog & Duck as Wellingborough Town grabbed a dramatic equaliser 10 minutes into stoppage-time to claim a 3-3 stalemate against Haringey & Waltham Development.

Tom Cookey put the visitors in front but Jason Turner levelled and his second put the Doughboys in front in the second half.

But Nana Asamoah brought the visitors level and they looked like going through when Solomon Ofori struck two minutes into injury-time.

However, there was a sting in the tail and Jon Mitchell found the net in the 100th minute to earn Wellingborough a replay in the capital.

AFC Rushden & Diamonds will take on London Colney again at the Dog & Duck on Tuesday after a 1-1 draw in their first meeting.

Spencer Clark-Mardell’s goal put the hosts in front but Diamonds’ first-ever game in the competition will be quickly followed by another thanks to Joe Merrill’s 20-yard strike 11 minutes from the end.

Kevin Byrne’s first match in charge of Stewarts & Lloyds saw them draw 1-1 with Nottinghamshire side Arnold Town.

Richard Moore put the hosts in front at Occupation Road but Liam Corrigan earned the visitors a replay with an equaliser before the break.

It was, however, a bad day for UCL Division One side Rushden & Higham United who suffered an early exit after they were hammered 6-0 at Haringey Borough.

James Daldy celebrated his first win as manager of Whitworth as they claimed a 1-0 win over local rivals Burton Park Wanderers at Latimer Park.

The Flourmen were helped by the dismissal of one of their former players Cavell Jarvis before half-time as Burton were reduced to 10 men.

And the decisive moment came just past the hour when Jamie White swept the ball home.

Another management team able to enjoy a first win was joint-managers James Le Masurier and Scott Manning as Raunds Town beat Bourne 4-1 at Kiln Park.

Karl King was the Shopmates hero. His double strike and Alex Wills’ goal put the hosts 3-0 up at half-time.

Seb Hood replied for Bourne but King had the final say as he completed his hat-trick and the scoring.

A late goal sent Thrapston Town to their first defeat of the campaign as Potton United claimed a 2-1 home success.

Thrapston took the lead through Fraser Smith but Steve Thomas levelled before the break and it was Chris Reeves who sealed all three points two minutes from full-time.

Rothwell Corinthians suffered a second successive defeat at Sergeants Lawn as Peterborough Sports made it two wins from two.

Luke Phillips’ own-goal put the visitors in front and Chris Garwell made it 2-0 from the penalty spot.

Phillips scored at the right end to pull a goal back after 68 minutes but Dan Drane put the game to bed with 10 minutes remaining.
