The air was thick with anticipation as Gosport Borough fans piled into coaches destined for Wembley at Privett Park this morning.

The buses leaving from Borough’s home ground were just a few of the many making their way to the home of English football, where Alex Pike’s side will take on Cambridge United in the FA Trophy final (3pm kick-off).

Lifelong fans Heather Rodgell, 51, and Marje Ramson, 84, were first in the queue.

Mrs Ramson, from Bridgemary, said: ‘It’s brilliant they have got where they are. Everyone is really behind them.’

Mrs Rodgell, also from Bridgemary, said: ‘I’ve always supported them. I can’t wait!’

Also in the queue was player Dan Wooden’s family, including his 10-year-old cousin Owen McPhillips.

Owen, from Lee-on-the-Solent, said it was his first trip to Wembley.

‘It’s so exciting. I want them to win,’ said Owen.

Owen’s mum, Theresa McPhillips, 46, said her son was a lucky charm – as whenever he goes to see Gosport play, Dan scores.

Mrs McPhillips said: ‘We are hoping his charm works again today.’
