THE LAST TIME Scott Jones was at Wembley, he witnessed Gary Barlow and Robbie Williams relight old fires.

Fast-forward three years, though, and it is the Hawks striker who could be back for good.

And he is eager to Take That ‘massive’ chance to be centre stage.

Jones and his Hawks team-mates are one game away from the home of football following their FA Trophy semi-final first leg 1-1 draw with Skrill South rivals Gosport Borough on Monday night.

But thoughts of a Wembley reunion have yet to enter Jones’ thoughts.

He said: I’ve been to Wembley to see the Charity Shield and I’ve been to see Take That play there as well!

‘It’d be nice to be the man to score the goal that takes the Hawks to Wembley.

‘But I havent been thinking about that.

‘We are looking at it as just another game.

‘There are massive rewards if we win, but it’s just another game for us.

‘We will be looking to win it as we do with every other game.’

Jones can expect to be met by a bumper crowd at Privett Park.

But the in-form Hawks striker insists the 15-mile trip holds no fear.

The 23-year-old is also looking forward to better conditions than the mud bath both sides played in Monday night’s first leg.

He added: ‘I’ve never played at Privett Park so I’m looking forward to it.

‘The pitch and conditions played a massive part in the first leg – it was a leveller for them.

‘But we’ll just go out and play our normal game and hopefully get the result we need.’
