FA Trophy: Altrincham beat Colwyn Bay in replayed tie

FA Trophy

Altrincham are through to the FA Trophy first round after a 2-0 win in their replayed match against Colwyn Bay.

The first attempt to stage the game was called off after 83 minutes, with Altrincham leading 2-0, when referee Mark Ackerman suffered an injury.

Bay rejected two alternative officials that were put forward by Altrincham and the FA ordered the third qualifying round game to be replayed in full.

Second-half goals from Greg Wilkinson and James Walshaw settled the tie.

Both players had scored in Saturday's original meeting between the two Conference North sides at Llanelian Road.

Altrincham's two goals came after the home side were reduced to 10 men, with Charlie Joyce sent off for a second yellow card.

The Robins will be at home to Brackley Town or Leek Town in the first round on 30 November.
