Rylands Prepare for their day Wembley
Warrington Rylands are almost ready for their trip down to Wembley on Saturday for the Buildbase FA Vase Final. Apart from a few small final preparations, David McNabb’s Blues are looking forward to their day under the big arch as they take on Binfield FC of Buckinghamshire.
Rylands route to Wembley has been quite a tough one, they faced three of the competitions early favourites from the Northern League in Jarrow, Shildon and West Auckland Town, they were all beaten on penalties and then last weekend they had to pull out all of the stops to beat a very competent and technically strong side in Walsall Wood.
The game at Wembley sees fans returning to games and Rylands only have a few tickets left of their 1500 ticket allocation for the game left.
Since their arrival into the North West Counties League in 2018, Captain Gaz Kenny, Warren Gerrard and Graeme McCall are the only ones left from that squad and they were amongst the first to congratulate the gaffer at the final whistle of the 2-1 semi-final win over Walsall Wood last weekend. Keeper’ McCall has stated this week that “It’s been a crazy week with securing the Wembley game and then hearing on Tuesday that we have been promoted from the Counties. My time here has been full of highs and not too many lows but as far as weeks go, this is right up there with the best, we still have a job to do at Wembley and we aren’t going just for a day out”.
Manager, David McNabb echoes the sentiment stating “This is the stuff of dreams, What we have achieved as a group fills me with a lot of pride, pride for the group that have been involved throughout the season, Pride for the club and for the Town. Warrington is a sports-mad Town and the ticket demand shows how much this means to it.”
“These players deserve their day at Wembley, as do everyone at the club from the players through to the officials and volunteers and to be able to share the day with the fans is something special. We haven’t lost sight of that finish line though, there’s one more game to be won and there’s no point in reaching this far unless you are going to throw everything you have at it. We will leave no ounce of effort spare. Binfield are another very good side, they have had a long road to get here like ourselves and they will have the same aspirations.”
We wish everyone at Warrington Rylands the very best of luck for the weekend, we will be there to cheer you on!
