A dramatic turnaround saw Faversham Town knock out Westfield in stoppage time in the FA Cup Preliminary Round on Saturday.

Trailing to Elliott's first-half goal, Faversham levelled through Danny Maxted in the 90th minute and then Wayne Wilson's spot-kick sent them through.

Goals from Stuart King and Dan Parkinson at the start of either half led Herne Bay to a 2-1 win at 10-man Walton & Hersham.

King volleyed Bay ahead before Dan Parkinson rifled home from 25 yards. Walton had Mbaye sent-off with 15 minutes left but scored late on through a Hemmings penalty.

Ian Pulman put Whitstable Town ahead at Walton Casuals midway through the first half but Mitchell Gutteridge's 52nd-minute equaliser ensured the teams will meet again on Tuesday night.
