DUDLEY Sports created club history by reaching the FA Vase 1st  Round after pulling off a 2-1 win over West Midlands League rivals Littleton at Hillcrest Avenue.

Nicky Turton netted after just two minutes to give the Brierley Hill based side a fabulous start before Matt Hearsey  quickly increased the lead to put Sports firmly in the driving seat.

Although James Dutton clawed a goal back for Littleton, Sports held firm to claim a famous victory.

Dudley Town couldn't complete a double triumph as they crashed out of the FA Vase when losing 2-0  against Stone Old Alleynians.

The Robins never really got out of third gear and their fate was sealed when Stone struck with goals either side of half time.

Sam Wilson put Stone ahead on 40 minutes  before Matt Thomas caught the Robins  cold with a second goal  straight after half time.

To compound matters further  the Robins had Ben Lawley sent off with half an hour remaining.

Black Country Rangers finally got their West Midlands League campaign up and running with an excellent 3-1 win at Wolves Casuals.

Chris Spencer, Blain Waugh and Muzzy U'nuda all converted for Lye based Black Country while Craig Bannister cut the deficit for Casuals, who didn't help their cause by having Joe Clarke sent off.

Cradley Town missed their chance to climb up the league table when they suffered a 3-2 reverse at home to Wolves  Sporting Community.

Wolves gradually gained control as the first half progressed to build a 2-0 lead by half time.

Chad Birch converted from a corner on 24 minutes and then snatched a second five minutes before the break when he beat Cradley goalkeeper Liam O'Dowd to the ball before cleverly chipping home from the edge of the area.

Darren Whitley threw Cradley a lifeline immediately after half time when cracking home from a corner.

Wolves soon responded  and restored their two goal advantage when Adam Skeldon blasted home from a Remi Birch cross.

Cradley got themselves back into contention when Chris Bladen turned home a Casey Collins free kick but further Cradley pressure went unrewarded.

Strugglers Smethwick Rangers  suffered a fifth straight league defeat when losing 3-0 at Shawbury United.

Reiss Corfield cracked home a couple of goals while Jake Young supplied a third which has now enabled Shawbury to share top spot with Shropshire  rivals Shifnal Town and leave Tividale based Smethwick still seeking their first points.

SMETHWICK host Dudley Sports at Packwood Road this Saturday while Dudley Town take on table toppers Shifnal Town at Sporting Khalsa's ground.

Black Country bid to boost their position with a trip to rock bottom Wem Town while Cradley  Town can look forward to playing at Worcester Warriors splendid Sixways Ground when they clash with third placed Worcester Raiders.

Bewdley Town return to action when they will attempt to join Dudley Sports in the next stage of the FA Vase with a visit to Midland League side Rocester.
