“I was lucky enough to play in a final as an underdog with Millwall and as a manager in a couple of quarter-finals, I just think it is a great competition, it is steeped in history and we will be taking it very seriously at the weekend. “Playing in the final is special, not just for yourself and the club you represent, but also your family, a big and proud moment. I would say the semi-final is probably the one that means so much, the final you have achieved, you are there. “I watched the FA Youth Cup the other night (Gillingham’s under-18s beat Corinthian-Casuals 4-1 on Tuesday night to progress to round two) and what it meant to our young boys to represent our club and beat a lower-level team, but you could see with their celebration at the end, you can see that cup football gives that real winning mentality feeling.
Fylde considering options for FA Cup clash with GillinghamFylde manager Andy Taylor has decisions to make when he selects an XI to take on League Two side Gillingham. Taylor has been rotating his squad to keep his players fresh but must now settle on a team to take on the stiffest challenge of the season. Gills boss Neil Harris may not gamble with Jordan Green’s fitness after he limped out of last Saturday’s loss at Doncaster. The winger came off early in the second half and may be given extra time to regain full fitness.
Now, 35, he’s part of the Fylde side hoping to cause an upset. “He was only 17 then, " Harris said. "A lot younger, quieter, a good lad and a good player coming through, it will be nice for me and (assistant manager) David Livermore to see him at the weekend, all grown up. ”Livermore also played in that final against United. Curtis Weston helped the Gills win promotion in 2009. He'll be lining-up against his old team in the FA Cup.
”Gillingham have never played AFC Fylde before but will be up against a player that Harris and the visiting fans know well. Midfielder Curtis Weston played in that 2004 final alongside Harris, coming off the bench for Millwall to become the youngest player to appear in a final, at the age of 17. Weston would later come and play for the Gills, playing 150 league games between 2008 and 2012, including being part of the 2009 side that won promotion at Wembley in the League 2 play-offs.

Picture: Barry GoodwinGillingham will be missing a couple of their own midfield contingent this weekend with Harris admitting neither Shaun Williams or Ben Reeves will be fit to play. Winger Jordan Green limped off last week against Doncaster and is rated at 50-50 to make an appearance. Harris must also decide whether to swap his goalkeepers. He’s played No. 2 Jake Turner in all of the other cup games so far but may prefer to stick with first-choice stopper Glenn Morris. Saturday’s game is the first of two cup matches in quick succession, with the Gills taking on Premier League Brentford in the League Cup on Tuesday night.
