Gainsborough captain Dominic Roma is dreaming of Wembley after Trinity battled through to beat Brackley in the FA Trophy on Saturday.

The Blues had Darryn Stamp to thank for the winner and Roma has his sights set on a visit to the national stadium.

Roma said: “It’s every footballers dream to play at Wembley and some of the lads have been lucky enough to play there.”

“I still want to play at Wembley and I wouldn’t mind doing it before my legs go.”

“This competition is the only chance I’ll get to try and get close to Wembley.”

Two seasons ago Trinity managed to reach the semi finals of the competition, where they lost to eventual winners Wrexham.

Roma, who celebrated his 29th birthday birthday in the third qualifying round victory last Saturday, sees the FA Trophy as a competition Trinity can have real success in this season.

He said: “We did it a couple of years ago when we were one goal from taking it to extra-time and who knows what could of happened.”

“Some of the older lads in the squad have played there and I would obviously like to but we have to take the confidence from the result against Brackley and try and kick on and go as far as we can in the competition.”

In Monday’s draw, Gainsborough were handed with a difficult away trip.

The Blues will travel to promotion chasing AFC Fylde in Lancashire on 13th and will be hoping for revenge, having lost to them 2-1 in October.

On Saturday, Trinity host Barrow at 3pm.
