BOTH Bewdley Town and Dudley Sports created club history this week by reaching the Buildbase FA Vase Second Round for the first time.

Sports pulled out all the stops to beat higher ranked Rugby FC from the United Counties League by a 2-1 margin thanks to goals from David Meese and Mathew Vaughan.

Bewdley had a much harder battle on their hands and required a penalty shoot out before putting paid to Staffordshire side Stapenhill who are based near Burton on Trent.

A closely contested game at Ribbesford Meadow resulted with the scores level at 2-2 after 90 minutes before Bewdley held their nerve to win the shoot-out 4-3.

Luke Morris had given Bewdley a flying start by heading home after just two minutes from a Josh Carpenter cross.

Stapenhill struck back to level just after the half hour when Cameron Steel netted with a well struck half volley.

Bewdley went back in front on 56 minutes when Carpenter again set up Morris to score following a free kick from goalkeeper Tom Harper.

Stapenhill finished strongly and levelled again with six minutes remaining through Connor Richins.

But Bewdley made no mistake from the penalty spot, with Morris, Tom Smith, Callum Allchuirch and Carpenter all converting after Harper had saved Stapenhill's opening spot kick.

Stapenhill then fired their fifth penalty wide to send Bewdley through.
