Brid Town skipper Jake Day scored the winning goal

This was the ideal start for new Town caretaker boss Brett Agnew, who took over last weekend after Curtis Woodhouse stepped down, against a Consett side who had won all nine of their games before this cup-tie..

The Seasiders played the final few minutes of the game when Mike Thompson was sent off after an off-the-ball incident.

Early on in the first half, the Consett keeper Kyle Hayes made a very good point blank save from McFadyan header.

Both keepers made good saves in the 90 minutes as neither side could break the deadlock and extra-time ensued.

In the opening period of extra-time, skipper Jake Day chased a lost cause, won the ball by the corner flag, surged into the area and beat Hayes at the near post to put the home side in front.

In the second period of extra-time Hayes saved with his feet to deny Day a second goal.

With time running out Brid were reduced to 10 men when Thompson was sent off, but Town held on for the win and go into the hat for the next round.

Fraser Papprill and Chris Jenkinson were immense in defence for the Seasiders.
