Chorley groundsman sends thank you message to Wolves after FA Cup clash

Posted by

Chorley FC’s groundsman Ben Kay has been in the news a lot recently for his unwavering commitment to his job at the club.

He first broke into the news as he slept on Chorley’s pitch to ensure the ground wouldn’t freeze over and cancel their huge FA Cup clash with Derby.

His commitment paid off with sixth tier side Chorley beating Championship side Derby County too.

He told BBC Radio 5 Live how he they had to stay under a heated tent as the club doesn’t have enough money for undersoil heating.

Chorley were then drawn against Premier League side Wolves for last night’s fourth round clash and Ben was called into action again.

He tweeted after the game about how nice Wolves’ staff were and how the Premier League players who I’m sure have cleaners at the Molineux had no problem leaving a spotless dressing room behind them.

Exactly what you want to see, they’re at the top level right now but they haven’t forgotten where they came from.
