Attfield said: "As far as the FA Cup goes it would certainly be nice to start and end at Wembley.
"However, we'll be looking to hopefully get through a few of the early rounds and draw a big non-league club, which would be great for the club.

"The FA Vase is the important one for us though and I'd like to do well in it.
"I think we'll probably end up playing Southend Manor, which will be a tough place to go. The draw could have been kinder, but in one-off games anything can happen."
The Crows start their pre season training tonight (Thursday) at Meridian School, where Attfield will be running the rule over his squad and a number of trialists.
He said: "I'm expecting a fair few to be there and it's a chance to have a look at some potential new players. We've got a big pre season schedule, and I'm looking forward to getting going again.
