Holyport FC will look to progress to the semi-finals of the of the Subsidiary Cup on Saturday and manager Derek Sweetman wants to finish the season as they started it.
Port have been on a solid run of late, winning three of their last five games and are only two games away from a potential final spot.
“I’d be lying if I said silverware wasn’t on our radar,” Sweetman said.
“We started the season with some silverware so it would be good to end it with some.”
Holyport beat Flackwell Heath 2-0 in the final of the Supplementary cup back in August, and now find themselves in the quarter-finals of the Subsidiary Cup – but Sweetman knows it will be a tough challenge.
“They (Cirencester Development Town) are not a bad outfit and it will be a tough one for us.” Sweetman said.
“I’m looking forward to the game and looking forward to testing ourselves against another side from that league after getting beat by Malmesbury Victoria it will be interesting to see if that’s the true level of their league or our league.”
Holyport go into the game having had a week off from action - which, with injuries piling up over recent weeks, couldn’t have come at a better time for the Sweetman’s side.
“From our club – the rest came at the right time,” added the Holyport manager..
“On the one hand players get to have a weeks rest.
“But it’s a doubled edged sword because sometimes it goes against you having a week off.”
