Darlington battled back from 2-0 down to take a 3-2 lead in the first leg of the FA Trophy semi-final thanks to Liam Hatch who scored two late goals.

In a slow opening, not helped by the poor pitch Gateshead settled better and  Nathan Fisher scored the opener for them on 21 minutes with a low drive, and Adam Rundle doubled their advantage just before half time sending the Tynesiders in for the break in good spirits. However the second half belonged to Darlington and ex Carlisle United player Marc Bridge-Wilkinson pulled one back on 53 minutes before Hatch hit his brace which means its advantage Darlington going into the second leg.

The final score:

Darlington 3-2 Gateshead

Attendance: 4,243
