Two strikes from Dorchester Town debutant Dan Green saw the Magpies edge into the first round of the FA Trophy against Didcot.

Following the Dorset side's heroic FA Cup win over Plymouth Argyle last week, Green completed his brace in injury time as The Blue Square South side came from behind to win 2-1 at Didcot.

The Oxfordshire side had eliminated Poole Town in the previous round, but Dorchester advance to the first round of the FA Trophy.

Pablo Haysham lashed a curling drive into the top corner to open the scoring after 42 minutes.

Green, making his debut from the substitutes bench, leveled the contest five minutes after half time with a low drive.

Both sides spurned good chances to push ahead, before Didcot had a late appeal for a penalty turned down.

With time running out, Green leapt high and headed home to ensure the Magpies' promising cup form continues.
