Yeovil Town 1-3 Stockport County

National League North Stockport pulled off one of the biggest shocks in the FA Cup first round as they beat League Two side Yeovil at Huish Park.

Alex Fisher headed the hosts in front early on before Matty Warburton's curling free-kick made it 1-1.

Nyal Bell then tapped in to give the visitors the lead at the break.

The Hatters extended their lead midway through the second half as a defensive mix-up allowed substitute Frank Mulhern to walk the ball into the net.

Stockport were in the Championship as recently as 2002, but times have been tough for the club following their relegation from the EFL in 2011.

"For the club this is a great day because it shows we're perhaps on the up and working our way back," said manager Jim Gannon.

"More importantly for these players who are trying to establish themselves as full-time professionals or work their way back into the game, for them it's a massive day.

"I said to them that this won't be the highlight of their careers, this is just a taste of what can come if you work really hard.

"I'm really delighted for the fans and the players for all the effort we put in today because for us it's a real highlight."
