Non-league Macclesfield pulled off the biggest shock in the first round of the FA Cup when they won 2-0 at League One high-flyers Swindon.

The Silkmen were not the only non-league side to beat Football League teams with Chelmsford, Hereford and Harrogate also moving into the second round at the expense of so-called superior opposition.

Blue Square Bet Premier Macclesfield took the lead in the 63rd minute through a stunning long-range free-kick from from Tony Diagne and Louis Thompson's own goal at the death secured victory.
