FA Trophy: First Round Proper draw made at Wembley

The 32 ties are scheduled to be played on 13 December, with the winners each picking up £5,000 from The FA’s prize fund.

Martin Allen’s Barnet, the top side in the draw with an eight-point lead in the Conference Premier, face a potentially tricky tie at Concord Rangers, the Conference South outfit who recently gave League Two Mansfield Town two good games in The FA Cup’s First Round Proper. Grimsby Town, second on goal difference and FA Trophy Finalists in 2013, travel to Nuneaton Town.

Gosport Borough, last season’s Trophy runners-up, have a Hampshire derby at Basingstoke Town. Oxford City, 3-0 up after just 14 minutes of Saturday’s tie against Lewes, will go to Wimborne Town in Dorset.

Hayes & Yeading United’s reward for their 6-0 spanking of Horsham yesterday is an away tie at the winners of tomorrow night’s replay between Wealdstone and St Albans City.

Teams who still have an interest in The FA Cup will clash in The Trophy as Southport host Wrexham and AFC Telford United entertain Chester.

Conference: Welling 2-1 Halifax

Welling moved past Dartford and out of the Conference relegation zone with a win over 10-man Halifax.

Aristide Bassele’s scrambled finish from a corner put the home side ahead.

However defender Lois Maynard’s header for Halifax minutes later meant the two sides went in level at half-time.

Midfielder Charlie Penny then scored his first career goal to cap a flowing move and make it 2-1 before Halifax’s Matty Pearson received a straight red card for violent conduct.

Conference: Grimsby 1-0 Halifax

Shaun Pearson scored the only goal to give Grimsby their fifth successive Conference win and strengthen their hold on second place in the table.

The centre-half powered home a header from a Nathan Arnold corner for his third goal of the season.

Arnold’s long-range shot in the 57th minute was tipped on to the bar by Town goalkeeper Matt Glennon, before Lenell John-Lewis fired over from 10 yards.

The visitors had few chances but Matty Pearson hit the bar in the 65th minute.

FA Cup: Halifax 1-2 Bradford

Bradford City had to come from behind to win their FA Cup first round West Yorkshire derby with Conference high fliers FC Halifax Town at The Shay.

Halifax looked on course for a shock when Lois Maynard stabbed home at the near post past a helpless Ben Williams.

But two goals in three early second-half minutes from Jon Stead and Filipe Morais turned the tie on its head.

Billy Clarke was involved each time, setting up Stead to level before Morais struck the winner on 53 minutes.

The half-time substitute threaded in Stead, who rounded Matt Glennon before slotting home.

Clarke then fed Morais, whose thumping strike across goal gave the keeper no chance, as City ended a five-match winless streak..

Maynard had earlier put the Shaymen in front after just three minutes when he turned in Paul Marshall’s corner – and the same combination almost crafted a second on 34 minutes.

But Maynard’s header from Marshall’s hanging cross was saved superbly at point-blank range by Williams.

An unmarked Scott Boden then missed a great opportunity on 40 minutes, shooting over from Richard Peniket’s low cross.

And the misses proved costly as Clarke’s half-time introduction inspired the Bantams into reaching Monday evening’s televised draw.
