  1. That's all for now, folks

    FA Cup first-round weekend

    Marcus Bignot

    What an afternoon it has been, from Westfields earning a replay, to Macclesfield winning at Walsall, to Sutton United winning a nine-goal thriller at Dartford - it's been a bundle of fun, goals and pitch invasions.

    Thanks for joining us on what has been a thoroughly action-packed afternoon of first-round action.

    Highlights from today's FA Cup games will be available on the BBC Sport website.

    We'll see you again tomorrow. Goodbye.

  2. Good news on McCartan

    FT: Bradford 1-2 Accrington

    Accrington have been quick to give an update on striker Shay McCartan, who went to hospital after falling ill in the closing stages of their win at Bradford.

    It's good news, as the 22-year-old has been released - fingers crossed we see him back on a football field soon.

  3. Post update

    FT: Portsmouth 1-2 Wycombe

    Paul Cook

    Portsmouth, winners of this competition eight years ago, were knocked out at home by fellow League Two side Wycombe today.

    He has not minced his words after the game.

    "I thought Wycombe thoroughly deserved the win," he told BBC Radio Solent.

    "It's probably the most disappointing afternoon I've had since arriving."

  4. Highlights

    FT: Northampton 6-0 Harrow

    Northampton smashed six past non-league Harrow, but they weren't even the biggest FA Cup winners today.

    That accolade goes to Braintree - 7-0 winners over Eastbourne.

  5. Stourbridge celebrate draw

    FT: Whitehawk 1-1 Stourbridge

    "They'll be partying on the streets of Stourbridge tonight!"

    The Midlands side equalised through Dan Scarr to earn a 1-1 draw and take the replay back to their place.

  6. Concern for McCartan

    FT: Bradford 1-2 Accrington

    It is not yet clear why Accrington forward Shay McCartan required medical attention during stoppage time at the end of the game but we will keep you informed as and when any further information comes through.

  7. Highlights

    FT: Cambridge 1-1 Dover

    Ricky Miller's late goal earned Dover a draw away at League Two side Cambridge United.

    The U's, struggling in League Two, will not be looking forward to that trip to Kent...

  8. Highlights

    FT: Bolton 1-0 Grimsby

    Liam Trotter's first half goal spared Bolton blushes as they edged to a 1-0 victory at home to League Two Grimsby.

  11. Reaction

    FT: Westfields 1-1 Curzon Ashton

    Video caption: Delight as Curzon rescue FA Cup draw at Westfields

    Westfields manager Sean Edwards, who says his players do not get paid for FA Cup games, says the 52 places between the side's showed today, despite their draw at home to Curzon Ashton.

    He tells Final Score: "Curzon Ashton had a lot of the ball. But we're in the hat.

    "I'm disappointed we didn't really play but we'd have taken a draw, just to have our name in the hat on Monday.

    "I said it felt like Christmas Day - now I've opened a present, it's not the present I want but it is still a present!"

  12. Post update

    FT: Yeovil 2-2 Solihull Moors


    Solihull Moors manager Marcus Bignot, linked with the vacant Grimsby Town job, holds aloft a club scarf to the loyal fans who've traveled down to Somerset to see their side draw at League Two Yeovil.

    Could that be a parting gift?

  13. Non-league success

    It looks like many of the non-league sides took inspiration from Eastleigh's gutsy display last night against Swindon.

    From this afternoon's ties, 14 more sides below the fourth tier have joined them in the hat for the second round, the most noteworthy being Braintree, Brackley, Macclesfield, Westfields and Solihull Moors.

    I'm sure most neutrals will be hoping that number continues to increase tomorrow.

  14. Anyone up for a replay?

    So, we are now guaranteed at least 10 first-round replays, after eight of this afternoon's 26 15:00 GMT kick-offs ended in draws.

    Eastleigh/Swindon and Crawley/Bristol Rovers were already set for replays.

  15. Highlights to come

    Remember, from 17:15 GMT we'll be able to show you the goals from today's FA Cup matches...

    Macclesfield fans, you'll like this!

  16. Best of the rest

    FA Cup first round

    There have been a few notable results this afternoon, and another which deserves some plaudits is Accrington's 2-1 triumph at Bradford, who are 29 places above them in the pyramid.

    Romuald Boco's opener was cancelled out by Matt Kilgallon, but Jordan Clark notched a late winner for the League Two side.

    It wouldn't be fair of me not to mention Dagenham's stalemate with FC Halifax Town - the only one of today's 28 first round ties not to have a goal. Let's hope the replay is more interesting...

  17. Post update

    FT: Yeovil 2-2 Solihull Moors

    And why wouldn't you after earning a draw in your first ever FA Cup first-round match?!

  18. FULL-TIME: Peterborough 2-1 Chesham United

    The Evo Stik Southern Premier side are out of time - their late fightback was not quite enough to earn a replay against Posh, who are ranked 95 places above them.

  19. FULL-TIME Gillingham 2-2 Brackley Town

    Some might argue it could've been even better for National League North side Brackley, who found themselves two goals up early on at League One Gillingham.

    But despite spurning the lead, the underdogs stemmed the tide in the second half and will get to do it all again on home turf in the replay.

  20. FULL-TIME: Walsall 0-1 Macclesfield

    Jon Whitney's Walsall, 12th in League One, are out of the FA Cup!

    John McCombe's goal wins it for National League Macclesfield, who are absolutely delighted.
