Former FA Trophy final winner Jordan Burrow is hoping the competition can prove a springboard for better form in National League North, The York Press report.
Burrow was a member of the 2016 Wembley-winning Halifax side 12 months before the Minstermen lifted the trophy for a second time.
But both clubs’ victories coincided with relegations from the National League during the same campaigns, with Burrow now hoping Trophy progress can instead help improve fortunes away from the knockout competition just as it did gloriously for City’s double-winning 2012 team.
City start this term’s Trophy campaign with a third qualifying round trip to Kidderminster with Burrow saying:
“I don’t really want to go on about reaching the FA Trophy final as we have more pressing issues, but it is a great day out and they are memories that stick with you so, if we can use the Trophy as a platform to get us going and firing in the league, that’s what we’ll do, even though we’d probably rather have a league game this weekend to put things right and help us climb the table.”
