Goalkeeper howler hands Spennymoor FA Cup win

Spennymoor Town’s FA Cup first-round tie at League One side MK Dons will be a “monumental” occasion, says manager Jason Ainsley.

Northern Premier League club Moors qualified for the first round proper with a 3-0 win at Lincoln United, their fourth cup tie of the season.

There is a gap of 85 places between the two teams in the football pyramid.

“It would have been better if it was at home, but what a fantastic stadium to go to,” Ainsley told BBC Tees.

“It’s what dreams are made of – a team in League One against lowly Spennymoor Town and what an upset that would be if we make it.

“We’re delighted just to be in the first-round draw, it’s going to be a monumental occasion.”

First-round ties are to be played over the weekend of 4-7 November.
