Craig Robinson was the hero for Warrington Town as the non-league club marched into the second round of the FA Cup courtesy of a 1-0 giant-killing victory over Exeter.

Appearing in the FA Cup first round for the first time in their 65-year history, Warrington sat four divisions and 100 places below Exeter prior to kick-off but they defied the odds thanks to a heroic second-half defensive performance.

That came after the brother of MK Dons boss Karl Robinson, Craig, had sent the fans of the eighth-tier Evo-Stik Division One North side wild by opening the scoring after seven minutes, which proved to be the winning goal.
