Former TNS striker Steve Anthrobus leads Hednesford in search of FA Trophy glory
LESS than a year after leaving Treflan, centre-forward Steve Anthrobus is savouring a weekend to remember.
His Hednesford Town side take on newly-promoted Conference oufit Canvey Island in the final of the FA Trophy, which kicks off at 4pm on Sunday and will be shown live on Sky.
And Steve's former club Millwall take on the might of Manchester United in the FA Cup Final the day before.
The 35-year-old football began his career at The Den and played alongside the likes of Teddy Sheringham, Neil Ruddock and Tony Cascarino.
Anthrobus said: “Both Hednesford Town and Millwall are going to be the underdogs, but hopefully we can go to Villa Park and take the cup away from Canvey Island and Millwall can do the same against Manchester United.
”It’s going to be a great weekend. There have been quite a few highs in my career, but being in The FA Trophy final will top the lot for me.”
Anthrobus, known as ‘Buster’, added: “I am looking forward to being able to give something back to the Hednesford fans after a disappointing season in the league. We owe it to them and the manager.
"We have under-achieved and hopefully we can go there on Sunday and give everyone connected with the club something to smile about."
Anthrobus signed for TNS from Oxford United in August 2001 and scored nine goals for Saints in 51 appearances (+19 as sub) before joining the Pitmen last June on his release.
