The Non-League Football Paper - - FA CUP SECOND ROUND REVIEW -

JACK MID­SON has fired Leather­head to the sec­ond round of the FA Cup for the first time in 39 years – now he’s chal­leng­ing Ser­gio Aguero to a race for the golden boot!

The 34-year-old player/ as­sis­tant man­ager is cur­rently top­ping the scor­ing charts with 11 goals ahead of this af­ter­noon’s show­down at League One Wy­combe Wan­der­ers.

But he is hop­ing to add at least one more goal to fend off the chal­lenge of Manch­ester City goal ma­chine Aguero, who won the race last sea­son with eight goals to his name.

Mid­son net­ted twice as the Tan­ners stunned bigspend­ing Bil­ler­icay Town in the last round and is al­ready dream­ing of a day out to the fi­nal at Wem­b­ley.

“I’m not sure where they take it from, but if it starts from round one then I’m sure they are go­ing to over­take me – es­pe­cially Aguero,” Mid­son said.

“But if it starts from the pre­lim­i­nary round and I was to go on and win it and get in­vited to the fi­nal, then that would be amaz­ing.

“But I’ll just be happy with one on Sun­day, if that is the win­ner then it will be even bet­ter.”
