Workington Reds advanced in the FA Cup after a high-scoring victory today.

Danny Grainger's side thrashed Prestwich Heys 6-0 in the first round qualifying.

Scott Allison helped himself to a hat-trick with Lewis Reilly (two) and Keelan Leslie also on target.

The emphatic win at Borough Park also earned NPL Premier side Workington £2,250 in prize money as well as a place in Monday's second round qualifying draw.

It was a second hat-trick of the season for frontman Allison, who hit four in their opening league game against Ashton United.

Their North West Counties League Premier Division opponents had Regan Brown sent off after just 17 minutes for denying a clear goalscoring opportunity.

Reds assistant boss Terry Mitchell, speaking in a post-match club interview, said: "To score six was good, it helps forwards gain confidence, and if you can keep a clean sheet, stating the obvious, you've always got a chance to get something from the game.

"It's been a good day all round for us."

In Northern League Division One, meanwhile, Carlisle City kept up their strong start to the season with a 2-0 home win over Seaham Red Star.

Dan Kirkup put Jim Nichols' side ahead in the first half before Callulm Birdsall wrapped up the points late on.

The win leaves City sixth after seven games.

Penrith went down to a 1-0 defeat at Crook Town, and sit 16th in the table.
