300 CLUB | Teague set for appearance milestone

Club captain Andy Teague could install himself in the Chorley record books tonight, as the 31-year-old is set to make his 300th appearance for the Magpies.

 

Teague joined Chorley seven years ago, making his debut in the Magpies 2-2 home draw with Witton Albion on February 5th 2011.

Since then, the defender has captained the side at pivotal moments in the club’s history, including two promotions, Play-Off final heartbreak and of course FA Cup first round action at Victory Park for the first time in 27 years.

 

“There’s so many good times I can look back on since I’ve been here,” Teague said, when reflecting on his time at Victory Park.

“I think when I first joined the main aim was to get promoted into the Northern Premier League. To do that in my first season and as skipper as well, was really special. We then got promoted to the Conference North back in 2014 and that was a huge achievement for us all at the club. The manager at the time, Garry Flitcroft, guided us on a great journey that season and to achieve it in promotion in the manner we did was honestly so special.”

 

“This season we created history in the FA Cup, reaching the first round for nearly 30 years. A lot was said about the tie in the build up to the match against Fleetwood Town, with it being televised and the draw in the clubhouse. But I have to say, having had time to reflect on it, it was a massive sign that this club is escalating forward at a really fast pace. For us to lose the tie so late on was hard to take, but that’s football and I think we’re stronger for it now.”

 

Along with the highs of promotion and breaking records, low points must also raise their ugly heads along the way. The skipper admits there have been a few disappointing moments during his time at Chorley.

“Of course, there are points since I’ve been here which have been really tricky to deal with afterwards. The Play-Off Final defeat to Halifax Town last season was gut-wrenching. I think we did everything possible to win the game that day, and we consider ourselves to have been the best team.”

 
Kidderminster Harriers are our visitors to the Chorley Group Victory Park Stadium tonight, kick-off 7:45pm.
