CENTRAL Ajax hit back from two goals down to salvage a point in a 2-2 draw with Alcester Town at Ajax Park.

Luke Dugmore’s brace saw Perry Mcleod’s side lead 2-0 at the break, but there was late drama as two goals in the last 11 minutes from Matt Trinder and Adam Miles saw the game finish level.

In the Challenge Vase, Shipston Excelsior secured their first victory of the season as they claimed a 3-1 success over Enville Athletic at London Road.

Freddy Murphy, Nick Shurmer and substitute Owen Clarke all netted for Steve Hedderman’s side, who will face AFC Church in the quarter-finals.

In Midland League Division Two, FC Stratford were edged out 3-2 at Bolehall Swifts. Harry Hartin and Bradley West were both on target for Stratford, but the home side claimed all three points thanks to goals from Stefan Hollingsworth, Ryan Sappleton-Willams and Luke Tyler.

Earlswood Town were left to rue a missed penalty as they were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw at Hampton.

The home side went ahead five minutes before half-time, but they drew level in the 55th minute through Anton Nunes.

Earls won the penalty five minutes later, but Danny Holiday’s effort was well saved by the Hampton goalkeeper.

In Midland League Division One, Littleton were thrashed 4-0 at Brocton, while Studley saw off Chelmsley Town 3-2.

Racing Club Warwick bowed out of the FA Cup despite a valiant performance at Coleshill Town, a side that play three levels higher than the Racers.

Tolani Omotooa put Coleshill ahead in the 11th minute, with Martin Slevin replying for the visitors just before half-time.

Coleshill restored their lead with 12 minutes to go to seal their place in the second qualifying round.
