Two goals from David Kolodynski in the 13th and 61st minutes were enough to see Valley progress to the next round of the competition, with their hosts adding a late consolation in their first game at the Butts Park Arena watched by a crowd of 315.

The Butlin Road side achieved the win despite playing more than 70 minutes with ten men, after Josh Thornton was red carded on his debut after a dangerous tackle.

Rugby’s next game is their first in the Midland Football League Premier Division when they travel to Sporting Khalsa on Saturday (12th).
