James Baker helped AFC Sudbury earn an FA Trophy third qualifying round replay with Tonbridge Angels.

After finding themselves behind and on their way out of the competition, substitute Baker rose to head home Ben Thompson’s cross home with just three minutes remaining, to force a replay on the MEL Group Stadium on Tuesday (7.45pm).

Meanwhile, Hadleigh United kicked off their FA Vase campaign in fine style with a comprehensive 3-2 victory away at Oxhey Jets.

In a hard fought tie, goals from Duane Wright, Josh Mayhew and Scott Chaplin finally saw Stuart Crawford’s side through to the next round.
