Luke Graham is the only Brackley Town player to have sampled a Wembley final, he was on the losing York City side against Oxford United in the Conference 2010 play-off final.

The defender will be in the squad for Sunday’s Buildbase FA Trophy final against Bromley and knows what to expect second time around.

Losing at Wembley is the best and worst experience I have ever had

Graham said: “Even though it was 2010, I can still feel the atmosphere of playing at Wembley like it was yesterday.

“The hallowed turf just soaks you up and absorbs you on the day. It takes a lot out of you, the build-up, the warm-up and the noise.

“Losing at Wembley is the best and worst experience I have ever had.”
