A superb hat-trick from Luke Childs earned Lichfield City a dramatic 3-2 victory against higher-grade opponents in the FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round.

Midlands League Premier Division side Highgate United were the visitors to the City Ground but two quick goals from Childs handed Lichfield the advantage.

Highgate pulled one back before half-time and equalised on the hour mark as the visitors threatened a turnaround.

However, with legs tiring it was Childs who won the tie for Lichfield with a fine run and finish.

Lichfield now face a home tie against Midland (Regional) Premier Division side Haughmond in the Preliminary Round proper as they look to continue their cup run.

The Shropshire side will visit the City Ground on Saturday 24 August 2019.
