Valley beat Coventry Sphinx 1-0

Mason Rowley’s strike just before the half-time whistle secured Rugby Town a trip to Ilkeston in the first qualifying round of the FA Cup.

Their preliminary round victory at Butlin Road on Saturday saw a debut in goal for 16-year-old Ashley Bodycote, making some great saves and keeping a clean sheet.

The game was watched by a crowd of 239.
