SILSDEN'S 100 per cent start to the season is intact as they took their league form into the Buildbase FA Vase and returned from Chester-le-Street Town with a 3-2 victory after twice coming from a goal down.

The Durham hosts opened the scoring through Alex Walker but the Cobbydalers were level at the break after Kyle Hancock’s 33rd-minute stunner.

They also had a man advantage after Chester-le-Street defender Chris Stephenson was sent off late in the first half.

Luke Rhodes was denied by a post as the visitors looked to make the advantage count but it was the ten-man home side that went back in front, with Lee Mole netting.

But their lead lasted less than a minute as Silsden’s attack from the restart was ended by a foul inside the area.

Mark Trueman scored from the penalty spot, and minutes later Hancock lashed in another spectacular strike.

There was no joy for Campion in their first tie in a national competition as they suffered a 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Bedlington Terriers.

The visitors had a slender half-time lead after Jake Foley’s opener midway through the first half.

Danny Cunningham levelled the first qualifying round tie in the 70th minute but Foley bagged his brace as the visitors snatched a last-gasp win.

Eccleshill United also conceded twice at home as Jarrow Roofing Boldon CA won 2-0 at the Mitton Group Stadium.

Goals in each half saw the visitors through to the next round, with Oliver Martin and Dennis Knight the scorers.

Albion Sports completed the area’s battle with Northern League clubs as they travelled up to Seaham Red Star, who won 2-0, but the tie was in the balance right up until the penultimate minute.

Albion keeper Jake Lofthouse had been helped out by the woodwork on two occasions but was finally beaten in the 71st minute when Liam McBride broke the deadlock.

The Albion Lions had created chances, and Alex Cusack had threatened an equaliser, again coming close in the 88th minute before Star sealed their win when Ashley Davis netted a minute later.

Thackley and Liversedge were due to head over the Lancashire border but both of their ties were postponed due to waterlogged pitches.

The Dennyboys should have travelled to Hallmark Security League Premier Division side Padiham, while Sedge’s hosts were Division One outfit Prestwich Heys.

Both ties are rescheduled for Tuesday, meaning the Dennyboys’ and Sedge’s Toolstation Northern Counties East League Premier Division fixtures that night are now shelved.
