AFC Fylde will be at home to Skelmersdale in the first round proper of the FA Trophy on Saturday week.

Skem earned the right to visit Kellamergh Park thanks to a 5-2 win at home to Chorley in a replay of rapidly changing fortunes.

And it was an ex-Magpie who helped seal Chorley's fate - Chris Almond, who left the club in August, scored two of the goals.

Chorley had twice led through goals by Jack Lynch and Dale Whitham and were 2-1 ahead at half-time, but Skem fought back, with Shaun Holden, Gerard Kinsella and another ex-Chorley man Tom Ince adding to Almond's brace in this replay
