That is just about it from us today. We have had pretty much everything - late postponements, plenty of goals and a couple of upsets too.

There will be video highlights of every FA Cup game on the BBC Sport website later, as well of reports of every match.

We will be back tomorrow from 11:00 GMT, providing another live text commentary of Sunday's 11 first-round ties.

Enjoy the rest of your evening.

Yeovil Town 1-0 Crawley Town

Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson told BBC Somerset: "I felt confident there was light at the end of the tunnel. The lads pulled it together today. I'm so pleased Jordy (Hiwula) got his goal. He's been unlucky and we've kept persevering and he's been a match-winner for us today. But I thought we had a few match-winners out there today. It was as comfortable as a 1-0 win can be."

Jordy Hiwula scored his first goal since joining on loan from Manchester City to send Yeovil through to the second round.

Hartlepool United 2-0 East Thurrock United

East Thurrock
East Thurrock United

They may have lost against Hartlepool today, but the East Thurrock United team

look in decent spirits before their 270-mile trip back to Essex.

Plymouth Argyle 2-0 AFC Fylde

AFC Fylde winger Mike Barnes: "The second half especially we did alright. We put pressure on them and were unlucky not to take our chances. We had a couple of good chances first half, and if we'd have taken them it could have been different.

"It's nice to come and play on the nice pitches with a good crowd. It's what everybody wants to do."

Plymouth manager John Sheridan earlier admitted he thought his side were lucky not to concede.

Follow tomorrow's FA Cup ties in a special FA Cup Final Score from 13:55 GMT on BBC One and the BBC Sport website. Highlights of all the games from the weekend can be seen in our highlights show with Manish Bhasin at 18:30 GMT on BBC Two.

Walsall 2-2 Shrewsbury Town

Shrewsbury Town manager Micky Mellon told BBC Radio Shropshire: "I am very disappointed to have conceded a goal at the very end, but we are in the hat for the draw on Monday and we'll have a chance when we take them back to the Meadow - we'll know what the prize is. We have had a few changes forced upon us, but if you'd have said that we would score twice here at Walsall I'd have said that would have given us a good chance. There was a derby feel about the game, played in a very good atmosphere and it was a really good cup tie."

League Two side Shrewsbury were 2-1 up until the 90th minute but Tom Bradshaw equalised for Walsall, against his former club, to take it to a replay.

Cheltenham fan with bird
Scott Harley

Scott Harley: 5-0 TO CHELTENHAM AGAINST SWINDON! Up the Robins!!

The Robins were indeed rocking today with a stunning 5-0 win against Swindon.

Southend United 1-2 Chester

Southend manager Phil Brown: "They beat us fair and square. I'm disappointed and hurt. It's hurtful what has happened today. We were undone by a better side. We have to learn from this. It was always a potential banana skin and we looked anxious. The players need to relax when they play."

Goals from Ben Heneghan and Craig Mahon sent Conference side Chester through to the second round at the expense of League Two Southend.

Basingstoke Town 1-1 AFC Telford United

AFC Telford United manager Liam Watson told BBC Radio Shropshire: "If you asked me if I wanted to stay in the competition at the start of the day, I would have taken it. I think we've missed a great opportunity to get through at the first time of asking. I feel sorry for the lads who put in such a great effort, and the fans were fantastic. It was a difficult pitch, puddles everywhere and it was difficult to clear your lines in the second half."

Telford, currently bottom of the Conference, must replay against the Conference South leaders.

Crewe Alexandra 0-0 Sheffield United

BBC Radio Sheffield's Jonathan Buchan speaking to Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough: "Nigel Clough tells me (Blades striker Marc) McNulty missed the game as he picked up a facial injury in an incident in a Scottish nightclub. Clough says the club are not happy with McNulty, who says he was the innocent party in the incident, resulting in a facial injury."

The Blades drew 0-0 with League One's bottom club Crewe Alexandra.

Cambridge United 1-0 Fleetwood Town

Fleetwood manager Graham Alexander reacts to their early FA Cup exit at League Two Cambridge: "We came here with a very experienced team to get a result and we're all hurting. We wanted to be in the second round of the Cup and we can't sugar-coat it any other way. There's a lot of pain in there. We now have to turn that pain into hard work."

Ten-man Fleetwood lost to Kwesi Appiah's late goal at the Abbey Stadium.

Chester-born ex-England striker Michael Owen: Southampton flying and a first win for Burnley. But most important, Chester FC are through to the next round of The FA Cup!

Plymouth Argyle 2-0 AFC Fylde

Plymouth manager John Sheridan: "It's a clean sheet but I thought Fylde deserved a goal. We're in round two - that was the objective - but we've got to play better."

Goals from Peter Hartley and Marvin Morgan saw Sheridan's side through.

Bury 3-1 Hemel Hempstead Town

Bury manager David Flitcroft: "It was a difficult afternoon for everyone concerned and that's testament to Hemel Hempstead. It's quite inspirational to see a team who will give everything for their manager."

Bury 3-1 Hemel Hempstead Town

Bury winger Joe Thompson: "It was difficult and a standout performance from Hemel Hempstead. I did wonder whether it was going to be one of those days and I'm glad it wasn't."

Thompson appeared as a late substitute and was on the field when late goals from Nathan Cameron and Daniel Nardiello sent the League Two side through against non-league Hemel Hempstead.

Chester celebrate
Jon McCarthy Twitter

Chester assistant manager Jon McCarthy has just tweeted this picture from the jubilant away dressing room at Roots Hall after their 2-1 win at Southend. Looks like they'll be celebrating their progression to the second round with a round of sandwiches...

We may be all done for today, but there are 12 more ties to be played in the FA Cup first round this weekend, 11 of them tomorrow. Clubs such as Norton United from the eighth tier, perennial giant-killers Blyth Spartans and 2008 winners Portsmouth will all be in action. Our live text commentary begins on the BBC Sport website at 11:00 GMT.

We are not done yet though...

Hopefully reaction to come from the players and managers involved in today's FA Cup ties, and a reminder that highlights and goals will be

available on the BBC Sport website from 17:15 GMT onwards.

The highest-placed side in the first round have made it through despite a late wobble - League One leaders Bristol City have won 2-1 at Gillingham, who were 2-0 down before Danny Kedwell's penalty gave them late hope.

Oxford, 19th in League Two, are only seven places above a Grimsby side lying second in the Conference, but earned a comfortable 3-1 win at Blundell Park, with James Roberts celebrating his new contract by scoring twice for the U's.

A breathless Kent derby sees Conference side Dartford win 4-3 at Conference South promotion hopefuls Bromley, thanks to Tom Bradbrook's winner.

Southport - three points above the Conference relegation zone - have earned a home replay against League Two side Dagenham and Redbridge after a 0-0 draw in east London.

So not quite the shockwaves of last night and Warrington's defeat of Exeter, but they will be dancing on the streets of Dover and Chester tonight. They have created the biggest headlines today, the Conference duo knocking out Morecambe and Southend respectively.

And honourable mention, too, for Cheltenham of League Two, who put five past League One high-flyers Swindon Town, and also Cambridge for their defeat of Fleetwood.

Byron Harrison is the hero for League Two Cheltenham, scoring a hat-trick in their 5-0 demolition of 10-man Swindon, who are 34 places above them in the league standings. Not bad for a striker who had only scored twice all season before today.

There are 34 places too between Conference strugglers Dover and League Two Morecambe, but the non-league side won 1-0 thanks to Stefan Payne's first-half winner.

Elsewhere, Eastleigh are into the second round for the first time, beating Conference rivals Lincoln 2-1 with a late Ben Strevens goal.


Barnet 1-3 Wycombe Wanderers

League Two leaders Wycombe's superb start to the season continued as they sailed into the second round at the expense of Barnet, who finished the game with nine men. The Bees took the lead through John Akinde inside two minutes before Paul Hayes equalised from the spot. Sam Togwell then saw red and Barnet failed to battle back. Aaron Pierre and Sam Wood added two more for the Chairboys before Andy Yiadom's late sending-off.


Bury 3-1 Hemel Hempstead Town

James Potton's deflected strike gave Conference South side Hemel Hempstead a surprise lead, which was quickly cancelled out by Andrew Tutte, and it took late goals from Nathan Cameron and Daniel Nardiello to seal Bury's spot in Monday's round two draw.


Plymouth Argyle 2-0 AFC Fylde

Another non-league side bites the dust as John Sheridan's Plymouth knock out Conference North side AFC Fylde.

It was a valiant effort by the men managed by former Tranmere and Bury player Dave Challinor (without his famous long throws on the pitch), but in the end Argyle had enough to see out a comfortable victory thanks to goals from Peter Hartley and Marvin Morgan.


Bury 3-1 Hemel Hempstead Town - Daniel Nardiello (90 mins)

Hemel Hempstead have been a credit to the Conference South today, giving as good as they have got, but their FA Cup journey and their resistance is ended by Daniel Nardiello as the striker heads in from four yards to seal Bury's spot in round two.

League Two side Cambridge have upset League One opponents Fleetwood 1-0 at the Abbey Stadium, with Kwesi Appiah scoring moments after visitors' striker Jamie Proctor was sent off.

Crewe, bottom of League One, have held League Cup quarter-finalists Sheffield United to a 0-0 draw at Gresty Road, while Conference South leaders Basingstoke face a replay at Conference side AFC Telford after their meeting finished 1-1.


Barnet 1-3 Wycombe Wanderers - Andy Yiadom (90 mins)

Things go from bad to worse for Barnet defender Andy Yiadom as he sees red for a rash challenge on Josh Scowen. Yiadom gifted Wycombe their penalty in the first half and now the Bees must play out the last few minutes with only nine men.

Bury 2-1 Hemel Hempstead Town

Into five minutes of added time at the JD Stadium, where Conference South side Hemel Hempstead are searching for a late equaliser. Danny Talbot's header loops wide - will that be their last chance?


Hartlepool United 2-0 East Thurrock United

The dream is over for Ryman Premier side East Thurrock, as they succumb to defeat at Victoria Park against Hartlepool, 60 places above them in the football pyramid.

Despite his late error, East Thurrock keeper David Hughes was named as the sponsors' man of the match for a string of wonderful saves that kept his side in the game.

For Pools it will be pure relief they have avoided being knocked out by a non-league side, but for East Thurrock, it is back to league business on Tuesday with a home game against Leatherhead.

Barnet 1-3 Wycombe Wanderers

The torrential rain continues at the Hive but the goals have dried up - for now. League Two Wycombe are holding on to their 3-1 lead against Conference leaders Barnet. Some amusement in the stands as Chairboys defender Sido Jombati slides for the ball and almost takes out Bees boss Martin Allen in the process.

Plymouth Argyle 2-0 AFC Fylde

AFC Fylde aren't going down at Home Park without a fight, but they just cannot find a way past Luke McCormick in the Plymouth goal - he has made a number of outstanding stops.

There's a famous name on the scoresheet at Oakwell. Devante Cole - son of former Manchester United and England striker Andy - has made it 5-0 to Barnsley against Burton. Cole junior, 19, is on loan with the Tykes from Manchester City.

Cheltenham striker Byron Harrison's day just gets better. He has completed his hat-trick for League Two side Cheltenham, who are thrashing their League One opponents Swindon 5-0. The visitors have clearly suffered following the first-half sending off of Nathan Thompson, his third red card of the season.

A late winner at Eastleigh? Ben Strevens has put them 2-1 up against Conference rivals Lincoln.


Bury 2-1 Hemel Hempstead Town - Nathan Cameron (88 mins)

Heartbreak for Hemel Hempstead.

Danny Mayor has been trying to win this game on his own for Bury in the second half and his cross lands at the feet of Nathan Cameron, who drives the ball into the net left-footed from 10 yards.

A seven-goal treat for fans at Vale Park. Dany N'Guessan has scored his second for Port Vale but they still trail League One rivals MK Dons 4-3.

There's also a goal-fest at Luton, who lead 4-2 against fellow League Two side Newport County.


Hartlepool United 2-0 East Thurrock United - Jonathan Franks (86 mins)

After making an absolutely wonderful stop to deny Jonathan Franks a second ago, East Thurrock keeper David Hughes has a stinker as he lets a cross slip through his grasp, and the ball drops perfectly onto the head of the onrushing Franks to score his second of the game.

You'd think that was curtains for the Ryman Premier side.
