Former Carlisle United youngster Jamie Armstrong was the goal hero as Penrith AFC progressed in the FA Vase.

The ex-Blues winger was on target twice as Dave Hewson's team got the better of Ilkley Town 2-1.

Armstrong converted a free-kick to level the scores in the first half after Kevin Gonzalez's opener for Ilkley.

And the former United pro then struck the winner in the second half as Penrith made it through in Yorkshire.

The first qualifying round victory earned the Northern League Division One club £550 in prize money and a second qualifying round trip to Northallerton Town.

Armstrong was one of a number of first-year pros released by Carlisle United this summer.

Elsewhere in the Vase, another former United man in Jordan Holt scored to earn Carlisle City an excellent 1-0 win over Guisborough Town at Gillford Park.

Jim Nichols' side will host Esh Winning in the second qualifying round.

And Cleator Moor Celtic completed a good Cumbrian day in the knockout competition with a 3-2 win at Sunderland West End, with Jay Weatherill, Liam Johnston and Jordan Little on target.

They will host Harrogate Railway Athletic in the next round.

The west Cumbrian club also used their game to show their support for their former player Danny Hodgson, who is in a critical condition in an Australian hospital after being the victim of an alleged unprovoked attack.

They held up a shirt featuring Hodgson's number 7 as they posed for a team photo.
