RAMSBOTTOM United supporters club chairman Dan Comer is using Leicester's Premier League win as inspiration for Rammy to get to Wembley.

The Evo Stik West side had 17 fans make the 500 mile round trip to see their side progress to the quarter final of the FA Trophy as they won 3-1 at Weymouth.

Comer had a lot of praise for manager Chris Wilcock, who only took over the managerial role in October.

"Football’s one of them games, we’ve all been saying look at the achievements of Leicester winning the Premier League a few years ago.

"They then go to Newport a couple of weeks ago and get beat, anything can happen in football.

"We’re beyond our wildest dreams already, but three wins and we’re at Wembley," said Dan Comer.

Rammy host National League side AFC Fylde in the quarter finals on Saturday, February 2nd, Comer insists the non-league high flyers will have to be up for the game.

"At the moment, there’s such a passion and commitment from the players, we go in to every match confident we‘re going to win.

"We know that Fylde are a big club in non-league, probably not going to be non-league for much longer.

"We’ll get them down at the Riverside, it’s a tight little ground and they’ll have to be up for it if they don’t want another giant killing," added Comer.

The Rammy supporters club chairman added that work commitments got in the way of a couple of fans travelling to Weymouth to add to the 17 who went.

"The only thing standing in anyone’s way was work commitments; there were one or two, who haven’t missed games this season, couldn’t make the trip down.

"We have a small bunch of supporters, but they’re highly committed. They travel all over to watch the team," said Comer.

Chris Wilcock has only been in charge at Rammy for four months, but Comer couldn't praise him highly enough.

"We’ve only lost three games in total under Chris since he came in and I just can’t speak highly enough of him.

"Obviously, when a new manager comes in you can be quite sceptical; is he the right man to take us forward?

"We’ve had quite a few baron years, we had some success about five years ago under Anthony Johnson.

"We feel like we’re now getting them good times back and it is all down to Chris and his coaching team and the players responding to that," highlighted Comer.

Rammy's FA Trophy journey looked to be over when Weymouth made the trip up North, but a 96th minute equaliser from Iyrwah Gooden forced a replay.

Comer has rarely felt an emotion like it when the equaliser went in: "I’ve been watching football nearly 50 years and I’ve rarely felt an emotion like that.

"We thought the game had gone, we played so well, and it had been such a good game. When that equaliser went in it was just mayhem, I can’t really remember much about it."

Rammy return to league action on Saturday as they travel to 18th place Glossop North End.

Wilcock's side are currently ninth, but are only five points off fourth with two games in hand.
