THE game that stands out for me is the FA Trophy final in 2006.

It was Grays Athletic against Woking and we had a busy schedule leading up to the game.

We had a midweek match in the Conference play-off semi-final and that was another massive game for us.

But we lost to Halifax Town 5-4 on aggregate and that made us even more hungry to do well and win the FA Trophy.

We wanted to win the league as well, of course but we had a little budget and it was always going to be hard for us.

It was great to be involved in the FA Trophy final because it was a major final that was being shown live on TV.

I was also the club’s top goalscorer for the season going into the game, so I felt the pressure to do well for the team.

The manager – Mark Stimson – was great and the way we played throughout the match was good as well.

We went 2-0 up just before half-time, with goals from Dennis Oli and myself, and it was great to score at Upton Park.

It was keep-ball at times after we went in front - we led 2-0 at half-time - and it was 2-0 come the final whistle.

It was fantastic because my family and friends were there and we all had the opportunity to celebrate together.

A lot of my friends are West Ham United fans as well, so it was great to play the final at Upton Park. It was certainly an occasion I will never forget.

I always wanted to win the FA Trophy growing up because it’s the highlight of a non-league footballer’s career.

I finished the season as top goalscorer which was a great feeling, and it proved to be a massive season in my career.

I earned a transfer to Brentford (who were in League One at the time) following the end of the season and it was all because of the good work that was done at Grays in 2005/06.
