Congratulations to my old mate Jamie Collins skipper of Sutton Utd as they beat League 2 Cheltenham to progress into the famous 3rd round of the FA Cup. Jamie is no stranger to giant killing as he was skipper of Havant when they went on a great run beating Swansea and Notts County before playing Liverpool at Anfield and finally going down 5-2. A few years later arguably a greater achievement beating his childhood favourites West Ham at Upton Park when playing for Aldershot.
Jamie and I were part of the Newport County set up that won the Conference South in 2010 breaking all records along the way. Jamie began his career at Watford beside Ashley Young before going into Non League football. He is an exceptional player and has made a good living from the game. When I am coaching young players he is someone I talk about and his path through football.
Hope you get the draw you want!
