Non-league football: Shepshed Dynamo cruise through in Vase
Shepshed Dynamo cruised into the second round of the FA Vase with a 2-0 victory over Blidworth Welfare.
Shepshed dominated the first half and it was a mystery why it took them so long to open the scoring.
The deadlock was eventually broken in the 39th minute when, after good work by Sam Wood and Ryan Perkins, Leon Cole fired home from just outside the box.
A second soon followed when, on 45 minutes, Justin Jenkins headed home a Keiran Davies free-kick.

After the break, Shepshed continued to dominate and Blidworth, of the Central Midlands League, never looked like upsetting the formbook.
Elsewhere in the Vase, Quorn lost 2-1 at Deeping St James 2-1, Kirby Muxloe were thumped 4-1 at home by Basford United and Heather St John's went down 1-0 to Long Eaton United.
It was a closely-contested affair at St John's Park, both sides had chances, Heather's best falling to Rich Lewis but he mis-timed a Ryan Nash cross.
Shay Wiggins put Long Eaton ahead in the 67th minute. Heather hit back with Dan Tymon and Scott Miles firing in shots. Ryan Jarvis and Josh McPherson went close with headers but they were unable to conjure an equaliser.
Coalville Town are three points clear at the top of Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Division One after hammering 10-man Leek Town 6-2.
It took just nine minutes for Ryan Robbins, the league's joint-leading marksman, to give Coalville the lead but Leek responded five minutes later through Tim Grice.
Jerome Murdoch restored Coalville's lead in the 22nd minute. A red card for Leek left-back Matt Bell, for a high challenge, then left the visitors with a mountain to climb.
Coalville moved clear in the second half with goals from Anthony Carney (56), a delightful Lewis Dodd lob (67) and Callum Woodward (71).
Late goals from Leek's Peter Wright, in the 82nd minute, and Coalville's Dave Leigh deep into stoppage time completed the scoring.
Loughborough Dynamo slumped to a 4-1 defeat at Market Drayton Town. They were four down before Dominic Brennan netted a consolation in the 82nd minute.
In the Baker Joiner Midland Alliance, fourth-placed Loughborough University were held to a goalless draw at lowly Highgate United.
Harborough Town's struggles continue in the Premier Division of the United Counties League.
They were beaten 2-0 at Wellingborough Town who, as a result, go above them in the table, relegating Harborough to second bottom.
Oadby Town lead Division One by a point after drawing 2-2 at Northampton Sileby Rangers.
