NON-LEAGUE football is thriving with three teams from down the pyramid system definitely guaranteed a place in the third round.

Fourteen of the 40 clubs left at the second round stage are from the National League - and one of them is Merseysiders Marine, who are managed by ex-Chester boss Neil Young.

Young masterminded Marine's brilliant 1-0 win at Chester last month and followed it up with a thrilling penalty shoot-out victory at League Two Colchester United on Saturday.

Their reward is a home tie against National League South side, Havant and Waterlooville and Young, who has ex-Wrexham defender David Raven in his ranks will be telling his side they have a real chance of making it to the next round.

Stockport County, for whom John Rooney is on fire for this season, are involved in all-National League affair at home to Yeovil.

Rooney, who won the National League with Barrow last season, scored from the halfway line in Saturday's 2-1 win at Rochdale - only adding to the exasperation of Wrexham fans who were left begging the question why he was allowed to leave The Racecourse three years ago.

Canvey Island host Boreham Wood in the other all non-league clash while ex-Wrexham captain Darren Ferguson won't want a cup shock as Chorley, who beat Wigan on Sunday, head to his League One table-toppers, Peterborough.

Ex-Wrexham manager Kevin Wilkin takes his Brackley Town team to Tranmere while National Leaguers Kings Lynn, Solihull Moors and Dagenham and Redbridge have been handed away ties at Portsmouth, Morecambe and Mansfield respectively.

Darlington will travel to Bristol Rovers while Barnet host MK Dons.

Oxford City boss David Oldfield hailed “a great collective effort” from his part-timers after they dumped League One Northampton out.

“The boys worked their socks off. It was a strong collective effort and we’re very proud of them," said Oldfield, who saw ex-Chester winger James Roberts grab one of the goals.

Their reward is a trip to Shrewsbury, who are managed by ex-Wrexham boss Sam Ricketts.

Northampton's former Chester boss Keith Curle was fuming with his team.

“They say that’s the beauty of the FA Cup, but there was nothing beautiful about our performance,” he said.
