It was a chance happening six months ago, when the Radio Sport Mornings show stumbled across Chorley FC playing in the National League North football competition - the sixth tier of english football.

While reading out some scores from around the globe, Chorley popped up, and as a joke, Piney and Sam decided they'd track their progress for the next six months. They became the official football team of the Radio Sport Mornings show.

Now, they've just secured promotion to the National League with a playoff final win against Spennymoor and are just one step away from becoming a professional football club in the UK.

Team manager Jamie Vermiglio caught up with Jason Pine after the final.
