Reggie Lambe has Wembley on his mind after FA Vase heroics
Reggie Lambe says it would be a thrill to showcase his talents at Wembley Stadium after Stowmarket town were drawn at home to Cobham in the next round of the Buildbase FA Vase.
“The finals for the competition are at Wembley, so we’d love to make it all the way,” said Lambe after Stowmarket beat Norwich CBS 2-0.
“It would be nice to play at Wembley in front of thousands, but in the situation [Covid-19] the world is in, it might not be the case.”
The Bermuda forward netted his second goal in as many appearances to help his new club, whom he joined this month after being released in the summer by Sky Bet League Two side Cambridge United, progress to the last 32.
Lambe opened the scoring in the ninth minute in spectacular fashion with a curling left-footed effort into the top corner.
The 29-year-old nearly added to his tally on two further occasions before strike partner Josh Mayhew headed home a second to wrap up victory and seal Town’s progression.
“We missed plenty chances in the first half,” Lambe added. “But I think 2-0 was a decent reflection on how the opposition performed.
“Credit to them, but I think we deserved to go to the next round.”
As for his brilliant strike, Lambe added: “Was enjoyable to see it hit the net and expectations are always high anytime I cross that line.”
Lambe and his team-mates have capitalised on home-field advantage in the national competition thus far having prevailed against Eynesbury Rovers and Norwich CBS on their own turf at Greens Meadow in the previous two rounds this month.
Stowmarket are scheduled to face Cobham in the fourth round on January 9.
The two teams have met only once before in the competition, back in 1998-99, when Cobham prevailed 5-2 at home in a second-round tie.
Cobham, of the Cherry Red Records Combined Counties League, thrashed Clapton 5-0 at the weekend to reach the fourth round for the first time in their history.
