Victory advance thanks to last-minute winner in replay
Town exited the Ultimate Quaran-Team Cup following a 4-3 replay defeat to Melbourne Victory after the initial tie finished 1-1.
Josh Blunden represented Town in the tournament and did the Club proud, but it was Victory who progressed to the next stage following a last-minute winner in what was dubbed the 'Jim Magilton Derby' given his connection to both sides.
Victory's player, known as 'Mo' is an E-League Australia competitor and is currently ranked 329th in the world at FIFA 20.
Meanwhile Josh, a Town fan, is a competitive FIFA player but is currently a free agent.
The 18-year-old looked to be in control when James Norwood made it 3-1 in the replay, but three goals in 20 minutes for the 'hosts' including a stunning strike from Kenny Athiu that curled into the top corner from 25 yards out, saw them progress.
The Ultimate Quaran-Team Cup was instigated on social media by Leyton Orient last week with a player or fan representing each of the 128 clubs that agreed to participate.
The page aims to raise £50,000 with 75 per cent going to EFL clubs struggling financially due to the season’s suspension and 25 per cent split between Mind and the fight against Covid-19.
