THE CARDEN clan had a double dose of success this week after brothers Adam and Paul shone for FC United and Cambridge.
Last weekend Rebels winger Adam helped FC Utd complete their third promotion in three years before Paul, who had watched his younger brother in the 4-1 win against Skelmersdale, played a leading role in the U’s play-off semi-final win against Burton on Tuesday.
Adam, 22, is now planning a first trip to the new Wembley to see if the U’s and his big bro can make it a promotion double.
Adam said: “I was made up when we won promotion – but just as much when Cambridge got to Wembley and it will be a special day to see Paul play there.
“There’s a whole load of family and friends going down to Wembley on a couple of buses and I hope it turns out to be a special day for all involved.
“It was nice to have Paul in the crowd last weekend because we hardly ever get to see each other play.
“He said I had done OK and it was great to play my part in helping FC United secure another promotion.”
Paul – who has been onloan at Cambridge from Accrington since November – is eager to follow Adam’s promotion lead.
“Adam had a really good game and it was good to see a Scouser getting promoted with United!
“I’m just hoping we can complete the job to make it a memorable couple of weeks for the family.”
