Coming from the Northern Premier League this week are The Gladiators, otherwise known as Matlock Town F.C. Plying their trade in the Derbyshire county town of Matlock, the side were formed over 130 years ago and play their home games at Causeway Lane. A highlight in the clubs history came in the 1976-77 season, when they reached the third round of the FA Cup for the first and so far only time. This famous run included victories over Wigan Athletic and then Division Three champions Mansfield Town.
