Coalville Town manager Adam Stevens says his side will relish every minute of Sunday's trip to Wembley for the FA Vase final against Whitley Bay.

Town hope to clinch a double after winning the Midland Alliance title by thrashing Alvechurch 9-0 last weekend.

Stevens told BBC Radio Leicester: "They are honest lads who have the chance to play at Wembley and it's a dream.

"We'll prepare properly but have a laugh. If we do ourselves justice, we have a great chance."

Stevens played for Coalville for ten years and was in the side that were beaten in the FA Cup first round by Wycombe in November 2004.

"I had a bad car accident and had to retire at the end of that season so it was a good way of finishing my playing career," he said.

The Coalville postman added: "It's a massive achievement to get here.

"I'm sure the fans will be here in full force. It's a big day and will be a great occasion."
