The game between Richmond Town Vets and Whitburn went to penalties in the Ironside Cup after Whitburn battled well with a scratch 11 men.

Whitburn went through after Richmond missed all three of their spot kicks and Whitburn made no mistake.

Richmond took the lead when Chris Coyle chipped in off the bar from 40 years.

Whitburn equalised on half-time through eventual man of the match Philip Carlton.

Carlton put Whitburn a goal up from a tight angle only for Richmond to equalise late on via a contested penalty, with Micky Sartini taking the game to penalties, although he never got the chance to take one in the shootout.
