LITTLEHAMPTON Football Club player-boss George Gaskin is targeting a run in this season’s FA Vase.

Golds host Wessex League Division 1 side Tadley Calleva in the first round proper on Saturday.

Although Tadley are a division lower than Golds, Gaskin is expecting a tough test for his side and said: “They have won five games in a row, as have we.

“I don’t know too much about them but it will be a tough game for us.

“However, with the run we are currently on, I’m confident we can progress.”

With the competition only for teams from steps five to seven of The FA National League System, Gaskin feels it offers a great chance for teams like Littlehampton.

He said: “This competition gives clubs like ours a real chance to progress through a couple of rounds.

“We will be taking this very seriously, as we always do.

“It’s important we keep that winning run going, whether it be in the league or cup.

“The final is played at Wembley and it gives clubs like ours the chance to have a great day out.”
