CHORLEY FC hero Adam Roscoe ranks his goal in the the Vanarama North semi-final play-off as one of the highlights of his Magpies career.
The stalwart has developed a reputation for producing the goods when it mattered with last-gasp efforts against Boston United on his CV.
That goal two seasons ago at the same stage of the competition and booked his place in the club’s folklore as his spectacular overhead kick equaliser forced the game into extra time.
He said: “The Boston goal was special because of how it was scored.
“But this one was different as it managed to win the game.
“It was funny because Smudge (Jonathan Smith) told me after the game that he thought I would score.
Now, the 31-year-old believes they have nothing to fear during their trip to FC Halifax Town on Saturday afternoon.
He said: “They are one of the best teams we have played and have done the double over us but we don’t want them to make it three wins.
“It is a one-off game and we are going there with a lot of confidence.
“We are under no pressure and were not expected to go up at the start of the season.
“But it is down to the great work by Matt (Jansen), Vermo (Jamie Vermiglio) and Smudger (Jonathan Smith as their tactics were spot on against Kidderminster and helped us win.”
Roscoe admits the hope of helping Chorley into the Vanarama Conference would be a tremendous achievement for the side and their team spirit has stood out.
He said: “It has been part of the nucleus of the team that have been together for the past six years.
“We all help the new lads to fit in and there are no egos and they would not last long.
“In my first spell here I was in the UniBond First Division but when Flitty (Garry Flitcroft) came in we started to get promotion and trophies.
“But Matt and the management team have done a great job in taking us on from that.”
