You can always count on The FA Cup to give you drama - and there was no shortage of upsets as the First Round Proper cracked into life on Saturday afternoon.
Conference National side Macclesfield Town stunned League One promotion hopefuls Swindon Town with a 2-0 victory at the County Ground to inflict a shock defeat on Paolo Di Canio's men.
Goals from Tony Diagne and Louis Thompson sealed the win and there were plenty of other surprises as well.
Conference North side Harrogate Town also shocked a League side, with Torquay beaten 1-0 by the non-League giant-killers. Chibuzor Chilaka was the hero for Harrogate.
Conference South's Chelmsford beat arch local rivals Colchester United by 3-1 in another brilliant Cup fairytale in Essex and elsewhere, Ryan Bowman starred as Hereford Town upset their former manager Graham Turner and his Shrewsbury Town side to book their place in the next round.
Will Evans put the Bulls ahead from 12 yards after just three minutes before Bowman doubled the lead with a stunning effort. Luke Summerfield gave Shrewsbury hope but Turner's misery was complete when Bowman slammed home a penalty to make it 3-1.
There was another upset at the Priestfield Stadium as League Two Gillingham cruised to a 3-0 win at home to League One Scunthorpe, with the prolific Danny Kedwell on the scoresheet.
Seventh-tier side Hendon Town gave Aldershot an almighty scare when Dean Cracknell gave them the lead but they could not hold on and eventually lost 2-1.
Brentford advanced, as they ended the hopes of Conference South's Boreham Wood at Meadow Park. Clayton Donaldson's fine strike set the Bees on their way after 17 minutes and Harry Forrester's goal just before the break sealed a 2-0 win.
But there was no Cup joy for AFC Fylde, who went down 4-1 at home to Accrington with Will Hatfield helping himself to a hat-full - he netted all the goals. Similarly for Kidderminster, they could not cope with Football League opposition as Oldham won 2-0 at Aggborough.
Coventry beat Arlesey 3-0 and there was a big win for Chesterfield, who thumped Hartlepool by 6-1. Bury beat Exeter 1-0 thanks to Efe Sodje's goal - although he turned villain when he was later sent off but his side held on.
Cheltenham cruised to a 3-0 win at home to Yate - Chris Zebroski on target - while Crewe came from behind to beat Wycombe 4-1.
In the day's other ties, Hastings won 2-1 at Bishop's Stortford, Sheffield United came from behind to win by the same scoreline at Bristol Rovers and Doncaster beat Bradford Park Avenue 3-1.
There will be a few replays as well, with York and AFC Wimbledon playing out a 1-1 draw and the games between Northampton and Bradford and Morecambe and Rochdale also ended by the same scoreline.
Slough and Mansfield will have to do it all again as it ended 0-0 while Guiseley and Barrow finished 2-2.
