Battling Gainsborough Trinity will be thrust into the national spotlight this weekend as they feature in the first round of the FA Cup.
And in-form Trinity, who have taken 10 points out of a possible 12 to move six points clear of the National League North relegation zone, can’t wait.
Ash Worsfold, the hero on Saturday as Trinity defeated Curzon Ashton 1-0 to extend their recent good form, said: “There is a buzz around the place at the moment for the FA Cup. The lads are on fire.”
Worsfold, whose daughter will be a mascot for the big day, added: “We are confident, looking forward to it and can’t wait.
“It will be the biggest game I have played in, though I have been there before with Alfreton Town.”
Trinity will be facing Evo-Stik South Premier high-flyers Slough Town at the Northolme on Saturday with the tie featuring on BBC’s Match Of The Day television coverage.
Manager Dave Frecklington, who has steered his side to a seven-match unbeaten run after troubling early-season results, will be taking part in the FA Cup first round for the first time as either a player or manager.
“It is important to me personally, to the club and to the players to get this far.
“To play on such a big stage and possibly create history is great.
“I have never got to this stage as a player or manager before now.
“This week is one I am really looking forward to and so can the boys.
“The Match Of The Day cameras are coming down and I know whoever we choose in the 16 will give everything for the club.”
Slough Town joint-boss Neil Baker: “We have a long journey and we are playing away from home, but we will not go there with any fear. We will have a real go at them.”
