Herne Bay FC aims for Wembley

It's the cathedral of football. The ultimate player's dream. To play at Wembley. But it's something even many Premiership footballers never achieve.

Now a team from Kent plan to pull their socks up, aim high and hope that they can win just two more games in the FA Vase cup competition for a chance to play on that hallowed turf.

Herne Bay FC play West Auckland in the semi-final first leg on Saturday.

The team have been able to think of little else - even at work.

Electricians, plumbers and carpenters. All these normal men with normal jobs give up their weekends to play for Herne Bay Football Club and the chance to play at Wembley is the fulfilment of a dream.

There are people in Herne Bay that don't even watch football but they are coming down to watch this.**

The FA vase is a national competition for the county league teams. 539 side started in the competition - only 4 are left. The only other Kent team to get this far in the competition, Deal Town, went on to win the Cup.

Manager Simon Halsey said: "What will be, will be. But it's been a great journey so we'll enjoy it"

Herne Bay often attracts up to 200 fans, but this weekend they are expecting more than 1,000 supporters to cheer them on.

If they can win this game then Wembley is one step closer.
