And the shocks didn’t stop there. Solihull Moors booked their place in the Second Round for the very first time by beating League Two Yeovil Town 4-2 on penalties after the sides drew 1-1 after extra-time.
A total of 12 First Round ties were decided yesterday evening and we’ve compiled the best of the reaction.
Eastleigh and their fans were understandably ecstatic following their 3-1 win at Swindon…

A home tie against FC Halifax Town is the Spitfires’ reward. But for the time being at least, boss Ronnie Moore is happy to bask in the glory of beating a side two divisions above.
What a night so proud of all my players you were immense lads , Our supporters were fantastic thanks for your backing , love you all 👍

Meanwhile, over in Solihull, one fan is dreaming of even bigger things after seeing their side make history.
Great win for @solihullmoors. Dispense with Luton and it could be the Man Utd coach pulling up in elmdon.
