London: Minor league clubs Bath City, Staines Town and Kettering all produced shock away wins in the first round of the FA Cup on Saturday.

Luton Town, the 1959 FA Cup finalists but now playing outside the Football League after relegation last season, blew a great chance to beat League Two Rochdale. They led 3-0 at halftime but ended up drawing 3-3.

Brighton and Hove Albion, who also reached the final of the world's most famous knockout competition, drew 4-4 with Wycombe.

League One side Norwich City were the day's big winners, hammering tiny Paulton 7-0.
