My Football Club's Ebbsfleet Utd Reach FA Trophy Final

My Football Club's Ebbsfleet Utd reached the final of the FA Trophy sponsored by Carlsberg, after beating Aldershot Town on agg 4-2 after a 1-1 draw at The Recreation Ground.

Aldershot took the lead on 61 minutes through Junior Mendes to make the aggregate score 3-2 but deep into injury time Michael Bostwick scored the equaliser which secured Ebbsfleet's first visit to Wembley in their history.

Ebbsfleet Utd changed their name from Gravesend and Northfleet at the start of the season and became the first football club ever to be 'bought out' by any fan through the website,,

For £35 you can buy a share and have a say in everything about the running of the club. For 30,000 owners, £35 doesn't seem to be a bad investment with a trip to Wembley beckoning.

In the other semi-final, York City beat Helen Chamberlain's (from Soccer AM) Torquay Utd 1-0 but Torquay go to Wembley on with an aggregate score of 2-1. York's goal was an own goal by Todd in the 64th minute.

The final is at Wembley on Saturday 10th May 2008.
