When you're in the FA Vase you always dream of getting to Wembley, says Beckenham Town coach Jason Clews
BECKENHAM TOWN coach Jason Clews says he is dreaming of Wembley Stadium ahead of Friday night’s trip to Sutton Common Rovers.
The club are in a rich reign of form going into The FA Vase Second Round tie having won their last three games.
Beckenham Town have risen up to fourth-place in the Southern Counties East Football League table, having collected seven wins, five draws and two defeats and Jason Huntley’s side are 10 points adrift of leaders Hollands & Blair, with a couple of games in hand.
Hosts Sutton Common Rovers are sitting in seventeenth-place (bottom six) in the Combined Counties League Premier Division, with a playing record of five wins, two draws and eight defeats. The Surrey side have lost five league games at home.
Sutton Common Rovers play their games at Sutton United’s Gander Green Lane and their 3G pitch will suit Beckenham Town’s trademark passing game.
When asked about reaching the Wembley Final on 22 May, Clews said: “It’s a long way away. You dream of it as a coach and a manager. When you’re in the Vase you always dream of getting there.
“Everyone that’s involved in it are either Step Five or Six, you’re not coming up against big teams, you’re all on an even keel.
“It’s a Cup game, it’s anyone’s. It’s a Cup, it’s the magic of the cup.
“You take one cup game at a time. It’s a knockout. Anything can happen on our day.
“We’ve got three good strikers, if we tie up in defence a little bit and don’t concede we’ve got a good chance.
“You don’t dream of it (Wembley) until you get into the Quarters and Semi’s but we’ll take one round at a time and see how we go from there.”
