Holbeach United midfield dynamo Jake Duffy will have a big question to answer if he scores against Thurnby Nirvana in the FA Vase on Saturday.

The Leicester-based Tiger has admitted that some of his closest friends will be lining up on the other side of the pitch when the fourth-round tie kicks off at Dakyn Road.

But Duffy’s pivotal role in Saturday’s 3-0 win over AFC Kempston Rovers should mean that it’s Nirvana with all the worries as a place in the last 16 of the Vase lie in wait for the winners.

“We’re doing well and playing some good football, with some clean sheets along the way, which is giving us plenty of confidence,” Duffy said.

“Winning games is always nice and we’ve got a good togetherness now which, game by game, is getting stronger especially with winning as we are.

“We’re going into games thinking that we’re going to play as we can, work hard and we should be winning games.

“It’s always nice to dream of Wembley, but a lot of my mates play for Thurnby so there’s a big incentive for me to get this game out of the way.

“But somebody’s got to get there, so why can’t it be us?

“It would be nice to win four trophies (UCL Premier Division, FA Vase, UCL Knockout Cup and Lincolnshire Senior Trophy), but we’ll take each game is it comes.

“I think that, with the way we’re playing at the moment, if we can keep this form going and get a bit of luck along the way then anything can happen.

“It’ll be very difficult, but you can’t rule it out so who knows?”
