Derby could’ve done with someone like Roo today, but instead non-league Chorley were belting out Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’ in the changing room after their 2-0 victory over the Rams.
The sixth-tier Magpies progressed to the fourth-round for the first time in their history by overcoming Wayne Rooney’s Derby side, which was deeply affected by a COVID outbreak at the club.
What a day for Chorley!
Nonetheless, even though it was mostly their academy, Derby are still the highest-ranked team Chorley have played since they were beaten 6-0 by Notts County in the first round of this competition during the 1899/1900 campaign, more than 120 years ago.
Connor Hall’s tenth-minute header, which came following chaos from a corner, opened the scoring before Mike Calveley secured Chorley’s place in the fourth round with his 84th-minute strike.
The win follows victories over League One sides Wigan and Peterborough earlier in the competition, after which Chorley players delivered a rendition of Adele’s smash hit ‘Someone Like You’.
It has become something of a tradition, and true to form, the club sang the song at the top of their lungs after the victory over Championship side Derby.
It’s an unusual yet brilliant choice of anthem from Chorley

Andy Preece, director of football and assistant manager of Chorley, said: We just needed a song that was special to us that everybody knew. It happened to be that Adele song.
Everybody knows the words to it, theres a little bit in the middle where you can really get into it.
Its just great to share something like that at the end of the game, great for camaraderie. You need that togetherness if youre going to win big games.
When we got promoted, had big cups wins, its always been that one.
