MAC­CLES­FIELD Town mid­fielder Ol­lie Nor­burn was de­lighted to get the all-im­por­tant goal that booked his side a place in the FA Tro­phy fi­nal at Wem­b­ley.

Nor­burn’s sec­ond half strike helped the Silk­men de­feat Tran­mere Rovers 2-1 on ag­gre­gate, and he is now tar­get­ing a win in the fi­nal.

“We’re over the moon, it’ll be a good day out for the fans and every­one as­so­ci­ated with the club but for us we’re go­ing there to win,” he told the club’s of­fi­cial web­site.

“I thought I should have done bet­ter against Tran­mere but I plugged away and thank­fully I man­aged to get the goal.

“I went over on my an­kle so to be hon­est I didn’t ac­tu­ally see it go in! I was on the floor in pain but I was buzzing that it did go in and that it has sent us to Wem­b­ley so hope­fully we’ll come back with the tro­phy.”

Be­fore Mac­cles­field turn their at­ten­tion to the FA Tro­phy fi­nal, the team have a busy league sched­ule to fo­cus on over the com­ing weeks.

It be­gan as the Ex­press went to print on Tues­day, when Mac­cles­field were set to travel to the Deva Sta­dium to take on Ch­ester.
