RANGERS STAGE AN UP­SET FOR THE AGES

The Non-League Football Paper - - FA VASE 2ND ROUND - By Phil Sum­mers

FOR­MER FA Vase win­ners Dunston UTS were un­done by two con­trast­ing Liam Nelthorpe free kicks as they crashed out in the sec­ond round.

Dunston, who started the sea­son with a 15game un­beaten run, bossed the sec­ond half only to be hit by a sucker-punch at the death.

North East Coun­ties sec­ond divi­sion lead­ers Winterton, with Kieran Wressle out­stand­ing at the back, pulled off a cup shock in Lin­colnshire.

Karl Dry­den in the Dunston goal, how­ever, was rarely tested un­til he was pick­ing Nelthorpe’s free-kick out of the bot­tom cor­ner.

Ear­lier, Winterton keeper Jor­dan Quibell made a fine block on the edge of the box to deny Dunston striker Mark Fitz­patrick.

With the wind be­hind them in the sec­ond pe­riod Dunston im­me­di­atly hit back.

They found the net just one minute in to the sec­ond half, when Robbie Start put through his own goal.

Winterton were then lucky to sur­vive strong penalty claims and Quibell saved well from Craig Scott and Cal­lum Lit­tle fired a pow­er­ful ef­fort a mat­ter of inches over the bar.

But when Nelthorpe’s in­jury time wind as­sisted free-kick found the net it was the home side that was cel­e­brat­ing a rous­ing up­set.
