Folkestone will be going all-out on Wednesday night to reach their first cup final in eight years.
Neil Cugley’s side host Charlton under-23s at the Fullicks Stadium for the right to play Maidstone in the Kent Senior Cup final.
They haven’t got that far since losing to Sittingbourne in 2010 and would love another crack at silverware.
Cugley said: “We’ll put out the strongest side we can because we want to get into the final of a cup.
“We haven’t been in one for absolutely years. We lost to Sittingbourne and Gravesend once.
“We’ve lost four Kent Senior Cup finals, so we’d like to get in there - and try to get in the play-offs.”
Folkestone have knocked out Hythe, Greenwich and Dover to reach the last four.
Cugley said: “I won it a few times at Ashford and I don’t mind the competition because you don’t travel far in it.
“It’s a big game because you’ve got Maidstone in the final and they’re a massive club. I’d love to get in the final and play them - and I’ve got a couple of players who would like that.”
Those players are ex-Stones Johan ter Horst and Callum Davies, who are both likely to start against Charlton.
“We don’t train anyway so playing twice a week suits everybody,” said Cugley, whose side are also chasing promotion.
“I’m just so proud. Sometimes you have to remind people where we were five or six years ago.”
Wednesday’s game kicks off at 7.45pm with tickets £5 for adults, £3 concessions and £1 children.
