Shildon AFC v Penrith AFC: FA Cup

It was a disappointing day at the office today for the Railwaymen, who suffered a 0-2 home defeat at the hands of Penrith, which saw them dumped out of the FA Cup at the Preliminary Round stage.

Shildon suffered a double sucker punch on the stroke of the interval as Penrith scored with the only chances they had created in the half.

First Matthew Reid scored with a volley from the edge of the box, just a minute before the half time whistle, and then Steven Rigg thundered home a header with the last move of the first half.

Shildon failed to create any chances in the second half as Penrith played a textbook defensive game to, in the end, comfortably see the game out.
