NORTHWICH Vics will head to North Ferriby United in the second qualifying round of the FA Vase.

That's the reward for Steve Wilkes' side coming through 'a battle' 2-0 against Golcar United on their narrow Huddersfield pitch.

Chad Whyte netted both goals for the Premier Division side after errors by the home goalkeeper.

Harry Stead brought down Brandon Barski in the box for Whyte to then send him the wrong way from the spot kick two minutes before the break.

And the win was sealed against the First Division North outfit in the 65th minute when Stead kicked the ball out of his hands straight at Whyte and the striker pounced on the loose leather to walk it into an empty net.

"It was a battle and the good thing for me is that we stood up to the battle and we came away with a clean sheet," said Wilkes as his side returned to winning ways following an FA Cup exit on penalties the previous weekend.

"With a bit more quality in the final third at times we could have pinched another goal but I'm delighted.

"I'm really pleased for the players because they were really down after last Saturday.

"We worked hard this week and had a bit of fun in training on Tuesday which the lads likes. And it paid dividends because every man worked his tripe off and did really well."

The Trickies will head to North Ferriby in the next round on October 10.

"We've got a few games to get the lads fitter before we go there. It'll be another tough game. They're all tough games at this level," said Wilkes.

Vics will be joined in the second qulaifying round by Barnton, who won 4-2 at Hall Road Rangers, and Winsford United following their 4-1 home win against Alsager Town.

Winsford progress to host Boldmere or Brocton, with Barnton to host Swallownest.

1874 Northwich will also enter the competition at this stage at home to Selby Town.
