Richard Blythe's goal just after the break was enough for an excellent win at Butlin Road on Saturday, ensuring Rugby Town's place in the next round of the FA Cup.

Their 1-0 victory over Evesham United - who play in Southern League Division One South - was watched by a 225-strong crowd.

Rugby Town will find out on Tuesday, when the draw takes place, who they will face in the First Qualifying Round on September 8.
