The Crawley run in the FA Cup is over for another year after the first round defeat against Luton at the Broadfield Stadium on Saturday.

A Matt Harold (63) goal looked to have earned Crawley a replay after this cancelled out Josh McQuoid’s (54) second half opener but McQuoid (89) won it for Luton, two-one, in the last minute.

The full first round results were as follows:-

Some interesting results, with some upsets, but on the whole those that expected to go through did go through with the stand out results, with them causing upsets to progress, having to be the wins for Salford City, Altrincham, Northampton, Eastleigh, Stevenage, Chesham United and Whitehawk beating Notts County, Barnsley, Coventry, Eastleigh, Gillingham, Bristol Rovers and Lincoln City respectively, to put them into round two and keep those cup dreams alive!

Following the Crawley defeat on Saturday the Reds know our name isn’t going to be in the pot for the next round and we ‘concentrate on the league!’
