Paul Hurst: Make the most of Grimsby Town's Wembley day out
HEAD to Wembley to cheer Grimsby Town on – you never know, it could be your last chance for a while.
That's the message from Mariners joint boss Paul Hurst ahead of his side's FA Trophy final against Wrexham.
Town have fought through five rounds to reach the final of non-league football's premier cup competition.
That means the Mariners fans have a fourth day out at the home of English football to enjoy, to add to the Auto Windscreens Shield and Division Two play-off finals in 1998, and Johnstone's Paint Trophy showpiece in 2008.

And, after Rob Scott yesterday urged supporters to make Grimsby "as quiet as possible" on the day this time around, Hurst was quick to echo his co-manager's sentiments.
"This will be a one-off occasion when it comes around," he told the Telegraph
"The Grimsby Town fans have been quite lucky in that they've had a few Wembley visits in recent years.
"You might get the chance to go there and watch an England game or something like that, but to watch your hometown club or the club you support is very special indeed.
"Hopefully we'll take a lot of fans down there for such a special day because there's no guarantees of when it will happen again or if it will ever happen."
Hurst admits he is pleased that the Trophy run, and Conference title push, has helped bring the feel-good factor back to the club.
"We've heard a few people and seen a few comments this year from Grimsby Town fans saying they've got something to be proud of again," he added.
"That's great, but we still haven't achieved what we want to achieve.
"We're making the right strides and hopefully we can actually win something and gain promotion this season."
