VCD Athletic are hoping for a bit of Premiership magic as they prepare for what manager Martin Ford called their "biggest game ever" on Saturday, writes Neil McKeown.
The Vickers take on joint tournament favourites Cammell Laird in the fifth round of the FA Vase. But first stop for the 34 players and officials heading up on Friday morning is Everton's Goodison Park, as the Kent League outfit call in a couple of favours.
"Everton use our training ground when they're down here so we've got good contacts with them," Ford explained. "They've sorted everything out for us, including the hotel and restaurant we're going to on Friday night."
But the Mersey giants aren't picking up the bill and with the whole shebang costing the club about £5,000, the £2,000 cheque for winning would come in very handy.
As for the match itself, Ford is expecting a tough afternoon against the side currently fourth in the North West Counties League division one - despite having six points deducted for fielding an illegible player.
"We flew up to watch them last week - they're a good team, lively and strong," he said. "We've got our work cut out and we'll have to play better than we have been - we've not scored in our last three league games.
"But their division doesn't look too strong and we think we can do it - we've done our homework. The lads are staying up until Sunday so hopefully the result will make it a good weekend.
