DELIGHTED Dudley Town booked their place in the Second Round of the Buildbase FA Vase for only the third time in their history after pulling off a prized 2-1 win at Lichfield City.

All the goals arrived in extra time after both sides fired blanks for the opening 90 minutes.

It took the Robins until the 94th minute before finally breaking the deadlock when substitute Jason Hewitt had his shot blocked by the City goalkeeper, but the ball rebounded back out for Hinesh Patel to plant home.

Dudley doubled their lead right at the start of the second period of extra time with a piece of outstanding play from another of their substitute's Danny Mayne.

The speedy Mayne broke clear and cleverly drew the City goalkeeper out of position before unselfishly setting up the chance for Hewitt to hit home into an open goal.

City pulled a goal back with five minutes of extra time to set up a nervous finish - but determined Dudley Town were in no mood to surrender their advantage.

BEWDLEY Town bounced back to winning ways with a 3-1 success over Dudley Sports to stay three points adrift of league leaders Shifnal Town.

It was unlucky 13th minute for Sports when Bewdley marksman Luke Morris seized on a poor clearance kick to fire home.

Matt Kerby made it 2-0 just before the half hour with a 25 yard shot after being set up by Sam Lester.

Plucky Sports pulled a goal back through substitute Jamarley Rouse on 62 minutes but Bewdley were in no mood to let slip and added a third goal three minutes later, Dylan Hart hammering home his 13th goal of the term from the penalty spot after being brought down by Jamie Parker.

Bewdley should have bagged further goals, but were kept at bay by Sports goalkeeper Liam O'Dowd who produced a string of fine saves.

Managerless Cradley Town crashed to their ninth beating in 10 games when defeated 2-1 at home by Darlaston Town who climb to third place as a result of this victory.

Lucas Hough put Darlaston ahead, scoring from the penalty spot at the second attempt after goalkeeper Adam Marusiak had saved the initial shot.

Eziekle Asyemong increased Darlo's lead just before the hour when intercepting a misplaced back header.

Credit to Cradley who clawed a goal back on 71 minutes when Kai Knight headed home Adam Skeldon's free kick.

But Cradley still stay rooted to the bottom and will look for an improvement in fortunes when they travel to local rivals Dudley Sports this Saturday while Bewdley visit Dudley Town.

Oldbury based Black Country Rangers return to action when they travel to Wolves Casuals.
