RAMSBOTTOM United will welcome National League promotion chasers AFC Fylde in the last-16 of the FA Trophy after Chris Willcock's side stunned Weymouth in their midweek replay.

The Evo-Stik West outfit made the 550-mile, 10-hour round-trip to the south coast to take on a side second in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier, a level above the Rams.

And it was a journey the team and 17 travelling supporters could enjoy after they moved to within three wins of a Wembley final.

Iyrwah Gooden and Eddie Moran went close for the Rams in the early stages of Tuesday's tie while Ben Thomson shot over for the hosts.

The visitors took the lead on the half hour when Tom Kennedy's cross was headed past his own keeper by Weymouth's Sam Sherring.

Parity was restored just two minutes later when Thomson nodded into an empty net.

Gooden hit the post for Rammy before the break and nine minutes after the interval the visitors regained the lead thanks to Moran's lob.

The home side tried to force the issue but 11 minutes from time Jason Carey added a third for Willcock's men who then missed a stoppage time penalty when skipper Tom Kennedy shot wide.

But it mattered little as the Rams celebrated a night to remember and a place in the last 16.

Elsewhere on Tuesday night, Barnoldswick Town claimed a battling point in their Hallmark Security League Premier Division clash at Congleton as the sides drew 0-0.

Struggling Padiham were beaten 4-0 at home by 1874 Northwich.

Joel Brownhill's early penalty put the visitors in front before Robert Doran scored a second half hat-trick.
