THE Isuzu FA Vase was the topic of conversation for Worcester City representatives on Monday evening.

City manager Chris Cornes, chairman Steve Goode and longstanding club volunteer Rich Widdowson featured on The Reposs Non League Round Up Show to discuss the Isuzu FA Vase at the weekend.

As has been well documented, the final of the competition is at Wembley Stadium on May 11 and now we are at the final four stage, it is becoming difficult to ignore that "dangling carrot".

"The league is in our hands and it's our bread and butter but there is no getting away from the dangling carrot that is Wembley and it's hard not to think about it," said manager Cornes, who is currently on holiday in Turkey until Saturday morning.

"We have a good group of lads and they've been fantastic at keeping their feet on the floor but you can't take your mind off Wembley."

City remain in contention for two other trophies this season having already won another in the Wiseman Lighting Floodlit Cup. Chairman Goode expressed his gratitude towards his manager as well as expressing how much he enjoying the "buzz" around the club.

"We have had a lot of bad times during my time as chairman so it's really good to be able to enjoy the good times now," he said.

"There is such a buzz around the place about it and it's great to hear all the fans talking about the game on Saturday and the possibility of Wembley.

"But it's been brilliant to see a local lad in Chris Cornes leading a side with lots of Worcester boys in it, who all want to play for the badge.

"They are brilliant with the fans and after every game they interact with them, young and old and it's just a really great place for us to be in."

As for Widdowson, he did not hold back with his excitement regarding Saturday and beyond.

"I have been dreaming of Wembley since the extra-preliminary round," he added. "I have said to Chris after every Vase game that the dream is to win it at Wembley. 

"With our club, we have a strong history and we have recorded everything we have ever done. Our lads are used to being on tv as we live stream games and we do interviews after every game for the website.

"This Vase final (if we got there) it would not phase our lads but I would rather win that than the league!"
