STEVENAGE PLAYER RATINGS:

Jamie Cummings: 7.5 - Excellent penalty save in the shootout put Boro on course for victory. The Chelsea loanee is learning so much at this level and his quick reactions prevented The Beach Boys from going through with a superb late save from Lamar Reynolds

Luther James-Wildin: 7.5 - The defender is a class act and his natural athleticism helped boost his side along the flank throughout a tough 120 minutes. Destined for a higher level one day soon

Scott Cuthbert: 7 - This former Celtic warehouse is always in his element when facing physical sides, and his performance showed that. Refused to concede an inch to rivals who boasted two 6ft 5in giants up front. Gave his all before hobbling off

Luke Prosser: 7 - Did not back down on a challenging afternoon. Solid and reliable

Ben Coker: 7.5 - Scored Boro's opener after good work from Pett. A resolute performance defensively

Elliot List: 7 - Gave his all against tough opponents

Charlie Carver: 6.5 - Not as influential as he would have liked given his undoubted talents, but will be all the better for the experience

Tom Pett: 8 - Man of the match. The Boro favourite covered every blade of grass and relished the challenge of a clash against highly-committed opponents. Loves the club, which was evident in his display. As he said afterwards: 'He was glad to be back'. With outstanding performances full of heart and character such as this Stevenage fans will be equally pleased. A class act.

Inih Effiong: 7 - Battled throughout the game and can be proud of his efforts

Arthur Read: 7 - Another who gave his all as Boro progressed to the second round of the world's oldest competition. Booked

Marcus Dinanga: 7 - Never let the Beach Boys backline settle in a lively performance

Substitutes:

Aramide Oteh: 7.5 - Slotted home Boro's winning penalty with aplomb

Danny Newton: 7.5 - Scored what many thought would be the winner, as the former Tamworth striker grabbed his first goal of the season. Boro and boss Alex Revell will be hoping it will be the first of many more

Elliot Osbourne: 7.5 - A vocal organiser when he replaced Pett five minutes into the second half of extra time
