Curwood accompanied FA president Prince William onto the pitch, where the Duke of Cambridge was introduced to the Chelsea and Leicester City players before kick-off.

Town's CEO was chosen for the honour in his capacity as chairman of the FA Cup Challenge Committee.

Curwood, a member of the FA Council, represented the club with great dignity and it was a proud moment for Fleetwood chairman Andy Pilley.

He said: “We are immensely proud of having our CEO representing the club at what is one of the biggest days in the world football calendar."

Pilley did not see a winning goal by former Town striker Vardy, which would have made his day complete, but the Fleetwood chief was pleased to see the Foxes victorious.
