Doc's dreaming of cup success

8 November 2013

Gary Doherty says he is hoping to create another special FA Cup memory when the Wanderers host Crewe Alexandra on Saturday (k.o 3pm).

The 33-year-old scored for Tottenham Hotspur in the semi-final of the competition back in 2000/01, the same season that the Chairboys also reached the final four.

“It was good at the time as it put us 1-0 up, but we ended up losing, and losing to your arch-rivals Arsenal was tough,” Doherty told Chairboys Player.

“It’s always nice to score in a London derby and in a cup semi-final, but we didn’t get the result we needed so it’s not my fondest memory.

“I scored the winner in a quarter-final against West Ham and I scored a couple more in my Luton days on TV, the FA Cup has always been quite good to me.

“I played Tottenham in the third round a few years ago when I went there with Charlton and I’ve been back to Luton so I’ve done my old clubs.”

Doherty added: “It’s the biggest domestic cup competition in the world. When you look back at it you probably only get 15 chances to play in it if you’re lucky.

“You want to do your best and in the lower-leagues it’s where you get your publicity as well. It’s something we’re looking forward to.”
