Gary McCann was a very proud man following the FA Cup win at Dulwich Hamlet yesterday. He said, "Obviously I am delighted that we have got through this tie. It was the most complete performance for a long time.

"Defensively we were solid. It is no coincidence that we had Kevin and Casey Maclaren back to play in front of them.

"And it was out first clean sheet for a long time. We played the game out brilliantly.

"The assurance and experience we were able to play with belied the youth of our side. I cannot speak highly enough of the squad.

"We did the ugly side of the game as well as the good things. There wasn't one player who I didn't consider for man of the match honours today.

"As much as the 18 players have done me proud today, there were three others who were involved, but they are just as important to me, such as Omar Vassell, Andre da Costa and Arthur Lee - and that is ignoring Dale Binns, who is injured.

"I am all about the collective needs of the club. It is going to be a squad that makes us successful this season, not just the 11 who started yesterday.

"We look forward to the draw and we hope that Lady Luck plays her part and it is kind to us."
