Yes, it's sad that money plays such an important part in modern football, but at a club like ours, where we do not have a money-man pumping money in, we have to rely on every single avenue for financial gain. This includes runs in the FA Cup and FA Trophy. We are unlikely ever to win either, but the rewards in both competitions are there for clubs like ours - just in a different guise.

Winning a couple more matches in the Trophy could genuinely mean the difference between giving Gary a little extra on the playing budget this season that he needs to get us into the Conference South. If we were to go out on Saturday, and come the end of April we finish 6th as injuries bite in the winter and we have no way of bolstering the squad. Would you be utterly gutted? I know I would. Progression in the Trophy could eradicate that potentiality.

Yes, it's great lifting silverware at the end of the season, of course it is. But this season, for the first season time since I have been a regular supporter (almost 20 years), we have a genuine opportunity to go full tilt for promotion. Would I take an early exit in the Middlesex Senior Cup if it guaranteed us a shot at the play-offs? Yes, absolutely I would.
