FORMER Bridlington Town striker Chib Chilaka made FA Cup headlines at the weekend when he scored the winning goal for Harrogate Town.

The Blue Square North outfit caused one of the surprises of the first round when they made the long journey to Torquay United of League Two and pulled off a 1-0 giant-killing.

Chilaka, who has also played for Bradford City and Braintree, got the goal in the 38th minute, holding off defenders and hitting a low shot into the far corner.

Harrogate face Hastings at home in round two.
