Sheffield FC, Matlock Town and Buxton are through to the FA Trophy Second Qualifying Round and £2200 the richer.

Stocksbridge Park Steels and Worksop Town must try again, while Frickley Athletic were dumped out by Evo-Stik Premier Division rivals FC United of Manchester.

Andy Gascoigne celebrated his 100th appearance for Sheffield by scoring two and setting up the other as Club eased home 3-0 victory over Bamber Bridge at Dronfield.

Sheffield dominated the opening exchanges making the break through on 24 minutes when Gascoigne sent Steve Woolley away to score with a confident finish. Gascoigne exchanged passes with David Graham just outside the area before lashing home a fine effort just past the half hour mark. Six minutes before the break Club had the tie in the bag with the third. Gascoigne was bundled over in the area before picking himself up to put away the penalty.

Matlock Town beat Stamford 3-0 at Causeway Lane in a tie that saw the visitors finish with nine-men. Gladiators scorers were Ben Hunter, Ben Algar and Oscar Radford, on-loan from Doncaster Rovers.

Buxton beat Garforth Town 4-2 at Silverlands where three first half goals from Sam Liversedge and a Keiran Lugsden brace had the hostd in control. The visitors pulled one back but Mark Reed restored the three goal cushion on 74 minutes before Garforth grabbed a second four minutes later.

Stocksbridge Park Steels were made to pay for sloppy defending and wasteful finishing as Division One North side Ossett Town came from two goals down to snatch a replay with a stoppage time equaliser to earn a 2-2 draw at Bracken Moor.

Richard Stirrup headed Steels into an 11th minute lead with Jack Muldoon almost doubling the score three minutes later with a firm drive that had the keeper at full stretch to push the ball over the bar. Muldoon should have done better five minute after the break but fired straight at the keeper when well placed. Stocksbridge grabbed the second on 64 minutes Muldoon making amends with terrific strike after Brain Cusworth had headed on.

Neil Turner reduced the deficit seven minutes later after having time and space to tuck the ball away from eight yards as the defence stood and watched. Muldoon clipped the post on 82 minutes before Steels failed to make the most of two easy scoring chances inside the last minute. And they were made to pay when in the last Ossett attack Kevin Sanasy poked the ball home.

Worksop Town continued their unbeaten run under new manager Simon Clark with a 1-1 draw at Bradford Park Avenue earning a replay at Sandy Lane on Wednesday. The Tigers went in front on 31 minutes when Mark Hudson sent the keeper the wrong way from the penalty spot awarded for a foul on Jamie Jackson. The lead lasted just five minutes as Bradford responded with Richard Marshall knocking in the loose ball after Jon Worsnop had palmed away a header.

After the break the inspired Wornsop saved a point blank range header then leaped to push a goalbound shot over the bar to keep the Tigers on level terms.

FC United struck four times in the first half at Frickley in a 4-0 victory to make the second period almost a non event.

Mike Carr opened the scoring from close range on 20 minutes with Carlos Rocca grabbing a second two minutes later from a free-kick. Rocca then saw his penalty kick saved by Adam Billard just past the half hour mark. But it mattered little when the United man made it 3-0 with a free-kick before Carr added a fourth a minute before the break. It got worse for Frickley in first half stoppage time when Leon Henry was sent off following a poor challenge
