Goalkeeper Ryan Price has revealed that he produced one of the performances of his career to help Chasetown FC overcome Workington in the FA Trophy.

The Scholars stopper pulled a string of saves out of the top drawer to preserve his side’s lead during the second half as the Reds attempted to find away back into the game.

But while he admits his performance was a special one, he admits that he “owed” his team-mates one.

He explained:

“I guess my performance was up there with the best I’ve produced, but I feel that I’m finally getting back to my best after my recent injury.

“It was nice the right the wrongs after I was poor against Hednesford Town – I owed the lads and club after that.”

Price’s performance wasn’t lost on his team-mates either as they heaped praise on his performance.

Midfielder Dave Egan revealed that it was one of the finest goalkeeping displays he has witnessed. He said:

“Pricey was immense. He made unbelievable saves at important times in the game – I’d go as far as saying it was the best goalkeeping performance I’ve ever seen.”

The Chasetown keeper picked his moment to produce a top-notch display.

The arrival of Darren Acton at the Scholars Ground had cast a doubt over whether Price would be able to retain the number one spot.

But he admits that the signing of the former Tamworth keeper has only served to bring the best out of him.

Price told The Lichfield Blog:

“Darren has won more things then anyone in our squad so his experience is massive to me. He passes things on so I’ll hopefully still learn from that as I’ll always take on board advice and tips from a person like that.

“I guess his arrival has focused me more and I’m working harder in training with goalkeeping coach John Birt to get better all the time.”
