No vote this week. I’m taking an executive decision and handing Team of the Week to Chadderton FC.
Two fantastic results in the FA Vase in the past 3 days sees them get the nod, despite some outstanding performances elsewhere.
On Wednesday Chadderton travelled to AFC Darwen for their 2nd round tie after the previous two attempts to get this tie played failed due to the bad weather. After 33 minutes they found themselves 3-0 down, and according to me, out of the FA Vase. However an Adam Whitehead double and after an own goal they found themselves back level on 55 minutes. The comeback was complete late on as goals in the 89th and 90th minutes from Niall Sultan and Daniel Murray turned the tie around and gave them a 5-3 victory and a 3rd round tie at home to Newcastle Benfield.
Sultan and Murray were again the heroes today as they defeated Newcastle Benfield of the Northern League 2-1 to earn the club £1,500 and a place in Monday’s 4th round draw.
Congratulations to all at Chadderton on a fantastic week, and good luck for the remainder of the competition.
No need to vote, and we will send Chadderton FC one of our certificates courtesy of our sponsors at Hallmark Security.
