Rob Edwards has hailed the ‘great character’ of AFC Telford United after making it to the first round proper of the FA Cup.

The Bucks scored twice in second half stoppage time to beat FC United of Manchester 3-1 on Saturday.

They are set to find out who they will face next in the competition – maybe a League One or Two side – in tonight’s televised draw, which starts at 7pm.

“The lads showed great character to get the win,” said Edwards.

“I am really excited – this is where we wanted to get to, to win the three ties and get into the proper rounds.”
