WESSEX Premier Christchurch pulled off an FA Cup giant-killing to reach the third qualifying round for the first time in their history.

The Hurn Bridge outfit, who ply their trade three divisions below National League North Gloucester City, took a shock lead on the hour mark when Max Wilcock found the net.

Khaellem Bailey levelled at 1-1 for the visitors in stoppage time to set up a dramatic penalty shootout – but Ollie Cherrett’s side held their nerve to triumph 6-5 on spot-kicks.

Keeper Lewis Gunstone-Gray flew to his right to deny Gloucester’s George Carline from 12 yards and send the home crowd wild.

Victory meant Priory pocketed £3,375 in prize money and put their name in hat for Monday’s third qualifying round draw.

Elsewhere in the cup, Wimborne Town progressed 5-4 on penalties after a goalless draw with Melksham Town.

Poole Town bowed out of the competition after a shootout defeat at Chippenham.

Having gone 2-0 down after just 12 minutes, Dolphins rallied with goals from Will Spetch and Tony Lee to earn a 2-2 draw and take the game to penalties.

But the home side kept their cool from the spot to knock Dolphins out 5-4.
