Shoot-out triumph in Gloucestershire

By David Watters

FA Trophy Second Round

Magpies keeper Sam Ashton saved three penalties on Tuesday night at Forest Green Rovers to send Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Chorley through to the last 16 of the FA Trophy.

Garry Flitcroft's trophy hunters will fly the flag for the Evo-Stik NPL at Tamworth in the competition's Third Round in January after Ashton's heroics finally separated the sides at the Conference Premier outfit's New Lawn after the replay went all the way to extra-time and penalties without a goal. The battling display in Gloucestershire, described by one Magpies official as 'magnificent', followed the sides' 0-0 stalemate at Victory Park on Saturday.

Chorley picked up £6,000 in prize money for their 3-1 win in the shoot-out and now travel to the Conference Premier's Lambs on Saturday January 11 with a quarter-final berth and another £7,000 in prize money up for grabs.
