Grimsby Town boss Paul Hurst says that playing Bognor Regis Town in the FA Trophy semi finals represents a chance to get to Wembley – but only if his side are professional in their approach to the two games.

The Mariners were paired against the Ryman League Premier Division outfit in today’s draw.




Speaking to gtfc.co.uk, he said: “Obviously it is a team that is unknown to us, I will have to do a bit of research before we come up against them.

“Realistically we’ve avoided the possibility of Halifax or Gateshead. Not under estimating Bognor, which we certainly won’t, it is a great chance to get to Wembley and reach a final.

“It’s a bit of a trek for the first leg, but having the second leg at home works for me.

“As I said, it does give us a good opportunity to get to Wembley – providing we have the correct attitude. If not, then we will come unstuck as the other teams that they have beaten from our league. We will have to make sure that we are right to get to that final.

“It’s no easy feat to get beat Altrincham and Torquay on their way to the semi final. They were both home games that they won and we’ve got to go there in the first leg and make sure that we are professional in our approach.

“They are having a good season in their league as well, so we will be coming up against a team that is going to be confident.

“The massive thing for me is our attitude, if we do that right we will give ourselves a very good chance of getting through over the two games,” Paul added.
