GAINSBOROUGH Trinity were ousted from the FA Trophy with a 1-0 defeat on the Northolme this afternoon.

Visitors Hinckley United made it through to the first round proper and took the £4,000 prize money home with them.

The result makes it four straight defeats for Steve Housham’s men, who signed defender Lee Ridley from Grimsby Town on the eve of the game.

Ridley, 29, has been given an 18 month contract on the Northolme.
