JAMIE Vermiglio has achieved a huge FA Cup upset as manager of the Chorley FC team that won 3-2 at Wigan Athletic on Sunday afternoon.

Vermiglio, head teacher at Locking Stumps Primary School in Warrington, saw his out-of-sorts National League North side come back from 2-0 behind to seal the success in extra time at the DW Stadium.

He said he was very proud of the performance and can now look forward to a trip to League One leaders Peterborough United at the end of the month.

Sir, who was in charge of the team for the 100th time, will be in a happy mood when he reports for duty at school today as his side turned round a sequence of five successive losses to dump his hometown League One side out of the prestigious competition.

Chorley fell behind to two goals inside 34 minutes but the game changed after a red card was shown to Wigan's Adam Long in the 41st minute.

Three minutes into the second period and Chorley had cut the deficit by half thanks to a strike by Newby.

It was all square after Cardwell netted in the 60th minute.

The winner came from Hall only two minutes into extra time but Chorley defended their lead for the remaining 28 minutes.

Vermiglio, 38, is a former midfielder at Chorley but also featured for Scarborough, AFC Telford United and Northwich Victoria during his time on the field.

After retiring in 2014 he took up a backroom position at Chorley before taking on the role as manager in June 2018.

He led the club to National League North play-off glory less than a year later, the Magpies reaching non-league’s top table for the first time in 29 years.

But they came straight back down again and have been struggling to find their feet so far this season.

Vermiglio will hope the team can spark in the league on the back of today's result.
