South Shields knocked Washington out of the FA Vase on Saturday with an impressive 2-1 victory at Mariners Park.

Andrew Bulford handed the Mariners the lead when he bundled the ball over the line, and Jonny Wightman made it two when he volleyed home from a superb Adam Sakr cross.

Washington hit back late on through Mark Davison, but the Mechanics were knocked out of the Vase by a Shields side operating one league lower than them.

Shields are next in action on Tuesday, when they host Ryhope Colliery Welfare in Northern League Division Two from 7.30pm at Mariners Park.
