St Panteleimon went against the odds and sealed their progress into the first round of the FA Vase after picking up a comfortable 4-1 against Long Bucky FC.
The Saints did in fact go marching on through the second qualifying round of the cup competition and bag themselves £750 in prize money.
Nick Salapatas opened the scoring after only eight minutes with a blistering finish after a fast side step.
Ayub Albadri added a second after 22 minutes, the visitors then clawed one back, before Albadri then netted again just before half-time to take a 3-1 lead into the break.
The second half saw an onslaught from the home side, with attack after attack.
The Saints hit the bar twice, and the post with the Long Buckby keeper also pulling some vital saves.
Then towards the end of the game, Albadri became a hat-trick hero to make it 4-1 with an angled drive, leaving the keeper no chance.
