The Cherries reached the final after a Gavin Kilkenny winner settled a tight match at Hartley Wintney in the semi final in early March.

Molesley said in an interview that he had come across Basingstoke Town already this season (with Weymouth) and that he and their manager go back a long way.
Basingstoke Town are managed by Terry Brown, who gave the then-teenage Mark Molesley his debut for Hayes in the Football Conference.

Molesley told “He gave me my first senior start in the last game of the season. I’d played a few games for the reserves and he gave me my chance.
Fortunately I took it, and played quite well that day and he gave me a contract.. soon I was in his first team in the Conference”

Brown later moved to Aldershot and signed Molesley, giving him his first professional contract.
“They were then full time so it was a dream come true for me as I was then a professional footballer, so I owe so much to him’ he said.

“it’s nothing about me or him though. I’m just proud to be representing Bournemouth and working with the players.
‘The way they’ve conducted themselves all season, I just hope that they do themselves justice on the day. They’re talented players and good lads and they deserve the fruits of the labours.”

Tickets are available on the night at the turnstiles, priced £10 for adults, £5 concessions.
