On Sunday I was at Wembley with 11,000 other Cambridge United fans enjoying our team’s, er, glorious success in the FA Trophy.

Having lost on our previous two visits to the national stadium, I found this latest trip much more enjoyable, and well done to the players, including former Royston Town keeper Will Norris, who did us proud by dispatching the mighty Gosport Borough 4-0.

The experience confirmed to me that Wembley is a great place for winners, which is why always makes me laugh when patronising sports journalists talk about supporters of teams having ‘a good day out’ when they reach a final and lose. In reality, if you care about either of the teams involved, there’s no ‘good day out’ option: you either win and get deliriously happy, or lose and want to kill yourself.

With the U’s well set for a top-five finish, I hope to be celebrating again in the play-off final at Wembley on May 18.
