Chorley boss Jamie Vermiglio is dreaming of a date with one of the biggest clubs in the land for his FA Cup history-makers.

The National League North strugglers stunned League One promotion-chasers Peterborough 2-1 to reach the third round for the first time in their history.

A shock did not look likely as Posh made the perfect start when Jack Taylor thumped them into a second-minute lead, but it was all about Chorley from then on.

Harry Cardwell and Elliot Newby both hit the woodwork in the first half, but there was no denying Vermiglio’s men in the second period when they completed a terrific turnaround courtesy of two goals in the space of three minutes.

It was inspired by defender Lewis Baines who laid on Connor Hall’s leveller on the hour and then fired in the winner after a Newby corner was headed perfectly into his path by Andy Halls.

Cardwell then saw a penalty saved by Posh keeper Christy Pym but the damage had been done.

Vermiglio said: “It’s a monumental achievement that we can treasure and I’m a very proud man.

“It wasn’t lucky either. What a performance we produced after going behind so early on.

“Technically we were good, tactically we were good and the set-pieces were absolutely on point, but we also had the heart, spirit and endeavour you need to get through an FA Cup tie in abundance.

“We had a good sing-song in the dressing room after the game and I’m sure we’ll celebrate on the coach home.

“It’s a long journey anyway but we might get the driver to go round the block a few times too.

“The boys have written themselves a piece of history that no-one can ever take away and it’s fantastic after what we’ve been through as a club over the last 12 months.

“It’s massive for a club like us to reach the third round and a Premier League side is what you want, don’t you?

“I’d love Liverpool or City or anyone in the top four or five…”

The third round draw takes place on Monday night at around 7.10pm and is part of the BT Sport broadcast of the final second round tie between Canvey Island and Boreham Wood.
