Yeovil Town crashed out of the FA Cup at the First Round stage, as National League North side Stockport County embarrassed them by a 1-3 scoreline. With 43 places between the two sides, and the Hatters now largely a part time outfit, the gap between the two sides on Saturday afternoon was non-existent despite Alex Fisher's 8th minute header that set his side up for a strong start. But Mathew Warburton's free kick, and a close range finish by Nyal Bell turned the tie on its head, and Stockport deservedly reached the Second Round after a defensive mix-up allowed substitute Frank Mulhern the chance to put County through.
