A former Carlisle United midfielder masterminded one of the the FA Cup third round shocks of the day.

Manager Russell Penn guided National League North side Kidderminster Harriers to a famous 2-1 win over Championship side Readinig.

They came from behind to defeat the second-tier side with goals from Sam Austin and former Blues trialist Amari Morgan-Smith, after George Puscas had given the Royals the lead.

Penn, who was with United in the 2016/17 campaign, said: “We want to be a [Football] League club and that’s our overall objective. But these are the days that will never leave the memories of these players.”

The Aggborough club were the lowest-ranked team in the third round and will now hope to land a big club in the fourth round.

“I’m a Wolves fan but I’ve never played there. So selfishly I’d love to play there,” Penn said.

“But Wolves, Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea – it’s mad to even be talking about these clubs."

Former York City man Penn joined the Cumbrians under Keith Curle in 2016 but only managed two appearances.

He had a loan spell at Gateshead before joining Wrexham.

Elsewhere, another former Blues man played his part in a shock third round result.

Jack Iredale starred for Cambridge United as they knocked out Newcastle United at St James' Park.

He helped the Us keep a clean sheet as Joe Ironside's goal sealed a 1-0 victory at St James' Park.
