Hemming's was his first victory in a Blyth Spartans shirt after joining the club last month. 

The match, on Tuesday evening, was a rescheduled FA Trophy replay after Hemming had debuted in a 1-1 draw between the sides on Spartans soil.

And the Boro keeper played again as Blyth claimed a 3-1 victory at the Impact Arena thanks to three first-half goals, a result which sets up a tie against Stockport County in the next round.

Hemming also played as the Spartans returned to league duty on Saturday, a 3-0 away defeat to league leaders King's Lynn.

The same day, Brad James and Gateshead came up against Alfreton in the national League North. 

Heed had themselves lost to Kings Lynn a week ago, before drawing 1-1 with Kidderminster in midweek.

Beating Alfreton by the same scoreline, 3-1, at the Gateshead International Stadium was a welcome first win in seven for Mike Williamson's side.

Elsewhere, there were also two games for Sam Stubbs with Hamilton Academical over the week.

On Wednesday, Accies came within minutes of snatching a draw against table topping Celtic. Marios Ogkmpoe's 90th-minute strike looked like claiming a point for Hamilton, only for Scott Brown to score an even later goal to secure an 11th consecutive win for the Bhoys.

Stubbs also played on Saturday as ten-man Hamilton lost by a single goal to St Mirren, a result which sees lints leapfrog Accies off the foot of the Scottish Premiership.

Mitch Curry was an unused substitute as Inverness strengthen their grip on second place in the Scottish Championship with a 2-0 win against Ayr United.

Enes Mahmutovic kept his place in the MVV Maastricht team as the Dutch side drew 1-1 with Jong FC Utrecht.
