Trinity’s veteran defender Adam Quinn has seen and done a lot in the sport, but Saturday could see him begin his first successful FA Cup run.

Gainsborough host Northern Premier League side Farsley in the world’s most famous club knockout competition.

Quinn is facing a battle to be fit, but hopes to take his place in the starting line-up.

He said: “I felt my calf in the Oxford game and it wasn’t right to play on Saturday.”

“But it’s going really well this week and there’s a chance for this weekend.”

“I’ve never really had a good run in the FA Cup so I would love to rectify that.”

If Quinn isn’t able to start the game at the Martin and Co Arena, he’s confident his understudy Chris Salt can do a good job.

Praising the youngster’s display last weekend in the win over Stalybridge, Quinn said: “He’s progressing really well.”

“He did well on Saturday, playing against a big, experienced player and handled himself well.”
