AFC Totton reached the second round of the FA Trophy for the first time in the club's history with a penalty shoot-out win over nine-man Frome Town, who played the majority of the contest with their manager in goal.

In a crazy encounter, the contest ended level at 2-2 at Snows Stadium, the Stags triumphing 4-2 on spot-kicks with Jack Hoey firing home the winning penalty.

The drama began early in the contest. A long ball over the top by goalkeeper Amadeusz Skrzyniarz was latched on to by Ethan Taylor, only for Frome keeper James Carey to charge out of his box and bring down the forward.

With just 10 minutes gone, the visitors were down to 10 men and brought manager Danny Greaves off the bench to take the gloves in goal.

Despite the setback, Marcus Mapstone powered in a header to give Frome the lead.

But back came Totton instantly to level, Sam Griffin cutting inside and smashing high into the net past Greaves.

And the crowd of more than 300 were soon entertained further, courtesy of a Hoey wonder-strike to put his side 2-1 up going into half-time.

But the drama did not stop there, Totton themselves reduced to 10 men shortly after the restart when Harry Medway was given his marching orders after receiving a second yellow card.

Incredibly, Frome then went down to nine men, goalscorer Mapstone also picking up a second yellow, only to then force a penalty shootout with a dramatic late equaliser. Former Stag Jon Davies got it, beating the offside trap and slotting home.

But Totton would emerge victorious and pick up the £3,000 prize money, progressing on spot-kicks.

Skrzyniarz saved from Davies to set the tone, before Griffin, Ben Jefford, Hisham Kasimu and Hoey all netted to secure a 4-2 win on penalties.

The draw for the second round takes place on Monday.
