Chasetown 1 Oldham Athletic 1
Never mind Andy Warhol's famous comment that everybody would get their 15 minutes of fame: the players of Chasetown are relishing another ten days in the spotlight.
Having produced the greatest achievement in their 51-year history by reaching the FA Cup first round, Charlie Blakemore's mix of three plumbers, a lorry driver, a teacher, a paint-sprayer, a road-digger and the rest earned the biggest ever result by earning a replay at Oldham Athletic.
The Midland Alliance club might lie 133 places below League One Latics but nobody in a crowd of around 2,000 cheering on the Scholars or the millions watching the game live on Match of the Day could possibly say they didn't deserve it.
Chasetown were dreaming of one of the most famous upsets in the Cup's glorious history when Nicky Harrison fired them ahead and though David Eyres levelled before half-time they were still in a Cup wonderland at the final whistle.
Exhausted certainly, emotional definitely, but all relishing the chance to play at Boundary Park a week on Wednesday.
"It was a superb afternoon, absolutely unbelievable," said skipper Craig Harris.
"We did ourselves proud. All we wanted to do was to give a good account of ourselves.
"We didn't want to disgrace ourselves in front of the cameras and I don't think we did.
"It was a tremendous effort from all the players. Nicky Harrison had a great game and it was a fantastic goal.
"The centre-halves, Chris Slater and Kevin Thompson, played well because Oldham are a strong side." Manager Charlie Blakemore had promised Chasetown - who had played nine matches to get this far - would not freeze on the big occasion and his rallying call to "go and enjoy yourselves" brought the best out of his players.
They more than matched Oldham, the three-time Cup semi-finalists, in the early stages and the home fans in a crowd of 1,997 erupted with delight when they took a 23rd-minute lead.
Neil Aulton's throw was only partially cleared and Harrison unleashed a low 25-yard half- volley which rebounded off the foot of Chris Day's right-hand post, and deflected off the goalkeeper's trailing foot to bounce in to the goal.
Eight minutes later, however, the visitors were level when the Chasetown defence were caught out by a wellworked free-kick.
Eyers knocked the ball to Andy Liddell who gave it straight back to the 41-yearold midfielder and he drilled his shot beyond the reach of Martin Taylor.
Goalline clearances from Aulton to deny Paul Warne and from Slater to thwart Gareth Owen kept Oldham at bay.
And despite Oldham laying siege to the home goal in the final minutes of the match, nobody could say Chasetown didn't deserve a moneyspinning replay.
"It is going to be a different game up there," said Harris, who will be back to reality and the day job this morning - as a lorry driver in his father's haulage business.
"But you never know what might happen.
"We've just got to make sure we can all get time off work to play!"
