MARSKE United pulled off a remarkable FA Cup upset beating National League North side Chester 4-0 in a replay at the Deva Stadium.

After the weekend’s goalless draw, the two teams met last night with the Seasiders going into the game as heavy underdogs.

In an odds defying performance, goals from McKenzie Dicicco, Dale Hopson and a brace from Adam Boyes humiliated a team two divisions higher than them in the football pyramid.

Carl Jarrett’s side also had Liam O’Sullivan sent off in the second half but they still managed to score two goals whilst being a man down.

The Seasiders play in the eighth tier of English football and have made a brilliant start to their Northern Premier League East Division campaign. They currently sit third with seven league wins out of eight. 

This is the second time in recent years that Marske have made it to the fourth qualifying round. They fell short last season losing 5-1 to Brackley.

Club secretary Mark Hathaway told BBC Radio Tees Sport: "An unbelievable game of football. My best ever as Marske United secretary. 

"It was a very strange game because they had an awful lot of the ball and created a lot of chances but no clear cut ones other than an outstanding save by Ryan Catterick. 

"We just took our chances and they were very desperate towards the end and we broke twice and scored twice. Unbelievable result."

It was a result that Chester co-manager Andrew Johnson admitted could spell the end of his and Bernard Morley’s reign in charge.

Johnson said: “I want to be here until the end of my contract but football is a very fickle game.

“It’s a results business and we haven’t been good enough. The board can answer them questions, not me.”

Marske will host fellow National League North side Gateshead on Saturday 16th October for a place in the first round proper.
