"Before now the qualification to the National League was our priority but having achieved that, we are now fully focused on the FA Cup where we believe we can still post more shocking results."

“We do not have anything to lose. We won’t be bothered about the outcome because we know that whatever the result will be against Tornadoes we would have achieved our objective of further exposing our players to topflight matches.

“We hope to present a very formidable team in the next season’s National League with the determination to pick one of the tickets to the premier league,” he concluded.
