A Bruno Andrade double inspired Boreham Wood to a comfortable 3-1 away win at National League South side St Albans.

Andrade’s penalty put Boreham Wood ahead in the 13th minute before Shaun Jeffers doubled the lead with four minutes remaining of the first-half.

The Portuguese midfielder made it 3-0 with his tenth goal of the season before St Albans scored a consolation goal through Zane Banton.

Aldershot Town booked their place in the first-round of the FA Cup as a second-half Scott Rendell header proved enough in a 1-0 win over Torquay United.

Rendell’s 79th minute goal was the only one of the game as Aldershot stretched their unbeaten run against Torquay to ten matches in all competitions.

Gateshead earned their place in the FA Cup first-round for the first-time in three seasons as they defeated Northern Premier League side Buxton at The Silverlands.

Goals from Patrick McLaughlin and Scott Barrow gave Gateshead a 2-0 lead at half-time but the game remained a contest with Liam Hardy pulling one back from Buxton.

In the East London derby, Dagenham & Redbridge and Leyton Orient played out a 0-0 draw at The Chigwell Construction Stadium.

Leyton Orient are now unbeaten in eight meetings with Dagenham with a replay to be played between the two sides on Tuesday evening.

AFC Fylde will feature in Monday night’s first-round draw after Danny Rowe’s first-half strike secured a 1-0 win over fellow National League side Wrexham.

Rowe scored his seventh goal of the season in the 37th minute and the home side held on for progression from the fourth qualifying round.

Truro City have become the first Cornish side to make it into the FA Cup first-round in 48 years after a 2-0 victory away to National League South side Hampton & Richmond.

Noah Keats opened the scoring for the visitors on the hour mark before sealing victory for City with a goal in the 89th minute.

Truro are now unbeaten in their last ten matches, having won nine of those.

Kidderminster Harriers defeated Chester 2-0 at Aggborough to secure a spot in the FA Cup first-round.

Emmanuel Sonupe put Kidderminster in front in the 19th minute and Joe Ironside’s strike 11 minutes from full-time sealed the win for John Eustace’s side.

Macclesfield Town thrashed Northern Premier League side Stourbridge 5-0 at Moss Rose to seal their place in the first-round of the FA Cup.

Goals from Danny Whitehead, Tyrone Marsh, Elliott Durrell, Koby Arthur and Scott Burgess gave Macclesfield the victory, their fifth successive win in all competitions.

Woking survived an FA Cup upset after a late equaliser from Jamie Philpot earned them a 1-1 draw with National League South side Concord Rangers.

Millwall loanee Philpot scored in the 87th minute to force a replay with Concord after the away side went ahead through captain Steve Cawley in the first-half.
