Rugby Town were beaten 2-1 in the first round of the FA Vase at Boldmere St Michaels on Saturday, in difficult windy conditions. Valley had gone ahead thanks to an 18th-minute penalty by Romario Martin.

But Boldmere equalised in the 72nd, also from the spot, after Loyiso Recci was sent off for a second yellow card.
