chrisFirst Team

Rob Hopley grabbed an 87th minute winner to catapult Colwyn Bay into the next round of the FA Cup with a 1-0 victory over Skrill North rivals Harrogate Town.

The Seagulls had some scary moments and survived one particularly torrid period of pressure in the second half.

But they defended defiantly to chalk up their first home win of the season and secure only their third victory in the FA Cup in six seasons.

Manager Frank Sinclair described it as “a massive win” for the club.
