FOOTBALL: THE DREAM OF PLAYING IN THE FA CUP

Every player would love to walk out on the Wembley turf and experience the thrill of playing in the FA Cup Final.

Lincoln United can tomorrow begin dreaming about Wembley as they take on Carlton Town in the preliminary round of the world’s most famous cup competition.

The Whites have had a solid start to the season having drawn their first two games and reaching the final of The Lincolnshire FA County Cup in the summer.

SportsLinc caught up with Chris Hall, assistant manager at the Sun Hat Villas and asked him for his thoughts on tomorrow’s match.

He said: “Playing in the FA Cup means a lot to players.

“I remembered when I played in a preliminary round when I was 18 telling all my mates I was part of the FA Cup.

“It provides players with a great opportunity to play a big stadiums against higher-league opposition.

“A good cup run can be massive financially for a club and gives you the opportunity to do something different to the league campaign.

” It’s time we had a good cup run here at Ashby Avenue.”

You can hear the whole of that interview with Chris on Mix and Match tomorrow at 3pm on Siren 107.3 FM and www.sirenonline.co.uk.
