Hume - These Are The Moments You Live For

Hume - These Are The Moments You Live For

Striker Iain Hume is not only preparing for Fleetwood Town's Play Off Final trip to Wembley because of what it would mean for the club, he's also preparing for what could be his first ever appearance at the National Stadium.

With plans and the build up well under way for Monday's trip to London to take on Burton Albion for a place in League One next season, Hume has told the Official Site that he knows it will be a special occasion for everyone at Fleetwood from the staff, the players right down to the fans, because for both he and the club, it's the first trip we will have made to the 'new' Wembley.

'It's something everyone dreams of as a kid. As a footballer you live for occasions like this. You live for memorable points in your career, and you always watch the big occasions like the FA Cup and League Cup Finals. It's a massive occasion, any division, playing at Wembley in front of your fans, family and on national television makes it a special moment. To be a part of that on Monday will be brilliant.'

Our last trip to the 'old' Wembley came back in 1985 in the FA Vase Cup Final against Halesowen Town, and Hume says you could see what the potential of the Wembley trip had meant to the fans following their support in our Semi Final clashes against York City.

'We're grateful for the support because it helps our performance. For a town that has around only 30,000 people it's brilliant to think how many will be at Wembley. You saw the way the fans were at Highbury - it was brilliant.'

With the 30 year old talking about the occasion for most of the interview, he obviously acknowledged that especially for the day of the game, the players did have to put that right out of their heads and just focus entirely on the match, the gameplan and on putting in the performance we need to get the result we want, because he knows that Burton are going to be a very tough opposition on the day because they will obviously be up for it as well.

'It's going to be a hard fought fight between two teams that deserve to be there. Hopefully it will be one of those games which we walk away from thinking it was brilliant. But Burton are a good side, they've got players who have played at a higher level, so we're going to approach it the same way as we did against York.'

Going to be a weekend that gets a touch more nervous with every passing hour.
