CHORLEY strolled into the first qualifying round of the FA Cup completely outclassing their Northern League Division Two opponents to win as they pleased.

The Magpies took control of the tie right from the start and after going two up midway through the first half, never relaxed their grip on the game.

Diminutive front man David Sutch was the star of the show for Chorley, proving very elusive to the home defenders and having a hand in all three goals.

It was all Chorley in the early stages and they inevitably went ahead on 16 minutes when Sutch beat two men in a great run before crossing for the unmarked Andy Mason to sore with a simple header.

Another teasing Sutch cross six minutes later led to Neil Mitchell's header being saved at the expense of a corner from which Mark Schofield got in a scoring header at the back post.

Mike Wallace had a fierce free kick turned over the bar and the home keeper saved a Paul Fleming shot from distance at the second attempt.

Following a rare Northallerton counter, Schofield popped up to head off the Chorley line from a corner.

The tempo slackened in the second half with the Magpies retaining control but four minutes from time Sutch embarked on another tricky run, again leaving two defenders in his wake before crossing for Mason to grab his fifth goal of the season with a mis hit shot which went in off the post.

Chorley now await the winners of a replay between Marske and Maine Road who will visit Victory Park in the next round.
