Result: Prestatyn Town reach Europa League second qualifying round

Welsh part-timers Prestatyn Town earn a dramatic penalty shootout win in the first qualifying round of the Europa League.

Prestatyn Town have secured a dramatic penalty shootout victory over Liepajas Metalurgs to reach the second qualifying round of the Europa League.

The Welsh part-timers won 4-3 on penalties after scoring an injury-time winner to take the tie to extra time.

Having lost the home leg 2-1 last week, Prestatyn's task was made even harder when their opponents scored after 17 minutes.

They finally equalised through Ross Stephens 13 minutes from the end, before a dramatic Neil Gibson strike in injury time made it 3-3 on aggregate.

The away side held firm through the extra 30 minutes, claiming an unlikely win in the shootout with a winning kick from former Tranmere Rovers midfielder Andy Parkinson.
