Penrith toppled higher-division opponents to progress in the FA Cup tonight.

The Bonny Blues saw off Pickering Town with a fine 3-2 victory in the competition's Extra Preliminary Round at Frenchfield Park.

Former Carlisle United youngster Max Brown was on target for Dave Hewson's side with Ric Faustino and Luke Brown also netting before half-time.

Pickering pulled goals back either side of the break but the Cumbrians held on for the victory.

The result sees Penrith progress to a home tie against West Allotment Celtic in the Preliminary Round on Saturday, September 12.

It also means a useful cash boost for the club with £1,125 going to the winners of Extra Preliminary Round ties.

Pickering play in the Northern Premier League Division One North West, one level above Northern League Division One outfit Penrith.

Hewson's side start their league campaign with a home game against Whitley Bay this weekend.

Supporters, meanwhile, returned to Borough Park tonight for the first time since the Covid-19 outbreak as Workington Reds faced Cleator Moor Celtic in a pre-season friendly.

Danny Grainger's side recorded a 9-0 victory.

Reds, meanwhile, now know the identity of their FA Cup Preliminary Round opponents.
