Burgess Hill Town are a step closer to making the first round proper of the FA Cup for the first time in their history after shocking former giant-killers Sutton United 3-1.

Scott Kirkwood (pictured) gave the Hillians the lead after just five minutes before the same player turned the ball into his own net to mkae it 1-1 just after the break.

But goals from Greg Luer (75) and Dan Perry (88) gave Burgess Hill a famous victory.
