FC Halifax Town 1-0 Morecambe: Non-league side knock out League Two rivals

Cameron King's fine individual goal earned National League side FC Halifax Town a first-round FA Cup replay win over League Two Morecambe.

Halifax controlled the first half and could have added to King's fine strike across goal, which came after a jinking run from 40 yards out following a fine team move.

The visitors upped the tempo in the second period but could not find an equaliser.

Rhys Oates twice saw efforts go narrowly over the bar while Vadaine Oliver shot over from 10 yards when he should have scored.

Halifax will host League One strugglers AFC Wimbledon at the Shay in the second round.
