Gateshead FC could be promoted to the Football League - if they can get past Cambridge in the play-off final at Wembley.

Gateshead captain Ben Clark can't wait to lead the side out.

He told
"I've had some good times in the game; international youth games, playing for Sunderland and winning promotion at Hartlepool, but this tops the lot.

It is definteley the best - 100% - because of the dressing room. We're an honest bunch of lads who work really hard, and the camaraderie we've got is second to none."

Meanwhile, defender James Curtis was meant to be marrying his fiancée Charlotte on Sunday.

He's had to postpone his big day though to walk out at the famous Wembley Stadium.

He told Capital:
'The new gaffer came in and we started winning an climbing the table.

I was getting a bit worried, so we made the decision to move the wedding back 3 days.

Charlotte was fine though, she's laid back just like me.

And she's getting a day out at Wembley too!'

They'll be getting hitched on Wednesday instead!

Warning From Police

Meanwhile, police are telling any fans travelling to Wembley to stay away from trouble.
