THEY started their football careers in the colours of Hepworth Juniors.
But later today, brothers Shane and Ross Killock will both be on the FA Cup glory trail.
The soccer stars from Scholes will both be bidding to win their first round proper ties of the world’s most famous football competition.
Shane, 23, will be in action for Harrogate Town down at Torquay United in Devon, while 18-year-old Ross will be running out for Alfreton Town as they travel to meet Wrexham.
Each is just seven games away from Wembley Stadium, in the best giant-killing traditions.
But proud mum and dad Carol and Dean will be breaking with tradition.
The couple normally go their separate ways on a Saturday, with one watching Shane and the other taking in Ross’s game.
But today both will be in the stands at Wrexham.
“Devon’s a little bit far to travel for a football match, even though it’s the FA Cup”, said Dean, whose football exploits reached the dizzy heights of the Huddersfield District League with the likes of Golcar and Bradley Mills WMC.
“We usually try to watch one each and then swap notes, but we can’t get down to Torquay”.
Shane – who made one appearance for Town in a game at Crewe – is a defender who began at Hepworth and later joined Town’s Academy.
He made only the one first-team appearance before moving to Oxford United and then had a spell with Telford United, helping them win promotion.
This season he joined Harrogate Town and is now a regular in the side who earned their trip to Devon with a replay victory over Hyde United – a club he had featured for in a loan spell from Town.
His younger brother is also a defender and played for Hepworth from the age of seven before switching to Upperthong.
Ross was then snapped up by Leeds United at the age of 15 and was awarded a pro contract last year.
He was loaned out to Alfreton at the start of October and has been an ever-present in the side, winning the Man of the Match award last week.
