The Hillmen must try again to secure their place in the semi-finals of the FA Vase after a hard fought draw.

The game took place in Worksop on Sunday after Shaw Lane re-arranged the fixture.

Shaw Lane opened the scoring early on when former Buxton man Lee Morris rifled home from the spot after being felled in the area by Kelvin Lugsden.

Glossop fought back from the early blow and this time it was Kelvin’s twin Kieran who equalised when he lobbed the home keeper.

The second half started as a near carbon copy of the first, as Shaw Lane were again awarded a penalty in the first 10 minutes.

This time Kelvin Lugsden stooped to control a low cross into the box and was adjudged to have done so with his arm.

Morris again stepped up and blasted home.

Glossop resumed pressing the home box and eventually levelled for a second time on 78 minutes when Kelvin Lugsden rose highest at the back-post to head home.

From there North End looked the most likely winners, and they so nearly pinched it when Ben Richardson’s low shot from the corner of the box drifted just wide of the target.

Extra-time came and went without any real incidents, so the two sides will reconvene this coming Saturday at Surrey Street with Wembley still in both club’s sights.

• NorthEnd’s opponents in the semi-final, should they progress on Saturday, will be a long trip to Cornwall-based outfit AFC St Austell.
