BOGNOR play one of their biggest games of recent times on Saturday when they go to Wealdstone in the final qualifying round of the FA Cup.

If they can overcome their National League South opponents, they will be in the first round of the Cup for the first time since 1995.

Here, Ian Guppy of the Rocks Supporters’ Club offers a fan’s view on the game.

This is, I feel, our biggest game in 20 years. In that time, we’ve won promotion and we’ve won play offs – but to get to the first round of the FA Cup would be massive.

It would be fully deserved, too, for all of the people who make this club tick – especially Jack Pearce, Jamie Howell and Dabba Killpartrick.

The exposure we could get from reaching the first round would dwarf anything we received from the Ryman one south play-off victory.

This is our moment... this is our time!!!

Ian Guppy

The team this season have been true Rocks and the signings made at the start of the campaign were shrewd, sensible and well timed – and are a testament to our season as a whole.

We are in a superb league position and have had a cup run based on attractive football against higher-league opposition.

This is our moment... this is our time!!!
