ALBION Sports continue to show imperious form at the start of this season, wrapping up a 3-0 win at Harrogate Railway Athletic in the FA Vase second qualifying round.

The game changed with the introduction of Helmo Silva midway through the second half, the Portuguese immediately setting up Fernando Moke to crash a fierce drive beyond the home keeper and into the net.

Silva bagged a late brace to wrap up the victory, the second of those goals being a fabulous acrobatic volley.

Albion host West Allotment Celtic in the next round.

Silsden also join Albion in the first round proper, where they will visit Redcar Athletic, after their 3-1 home win over Billingham Synthonia.

Experienced former Farsley Celtic man Adam Clayton opened the scoring by heading in Ellis Hudson’s corner, before Kayle Price doubled the Cobbydalers’ lead by nodding home at the near post.

Price fired an effort into the bottom corner early in the second half to put the hosts 3-0 up.

Billingham pounced on a defensive error to pull a goal back, before Silsden keeper Kyle Trennery saved a penalty to ensure there were no late nerves for his side.

But a defensive lapse saw the home side halve the deficit late on, only for Stevie Crawford to clinch a 3-1 victory for the Red and Blacks in injury-time.

Zak Khan was the hero for Route One Rovers in the North West Counties Football League First Division North, as he completed his hat-trick in the dying moments to seal a 3-2 win over Shelley.

Brighouse Town drew 2-2 at home to Clitheroe in the FA Trophy second qualifying round, with Jack Normanton at the double, before the hosts won 4-1 on penalties. Brig will visit Ashton United in the third qualifying round.
