PICTURE SPECIAL: Rocks beat Altrincham for FA Trophy glory

It was one of the great occasions of recent years at Nyewood Lane.

Bognor took on Altrincham in the second round of the FA Trophy - and beat them 2-1 to reach the last 16 for the first time in their history.

The evening had everything - from a fleet of cars being driven on to the pitch to thaw out a frozen strip of grass to a winning wonder-goal five minutes from time and wild celebrations afterwards.

Relive the action with our gallery of pictures by Tim Hale and Tommy McMillan, above
