Donaldson wants more Wembley glory

Cambridge lift the FA Carlsberg Trophy at Wembley

Despite firing Cambridge United to FA Trophy glory, two goal hero Ryan Donaldson says he’s not satisfied with just one Wembley win this season.

The former Newcastle United trainee has set his sights on returning in May for the Conference Premier Play-Off Final and this time he wants to go one better.

“It’s only the start, we want to come back here and win again. That’s the aim for the rest of the season,” said Donaldson in the aftermath of his side’s 4-0 victory over Gosport.

“I’ve certainly got a taste for scoring goals at Wembley but hopefully I’ll get three next time. That’s the aim anyway.”

Donaldson was the star of the show as Cambridge United lifted the FA Carlsberg Trophy on Sunday afternoon scoring two and picking up the man of the match award as well.

And the 22-year-old midfielder admits a brace at the national stadium has to be the high point of his career so far.

“To score two goals in a winning performance at Wembley it doesn’t get any better than that,” he said.

“The ball was perfect for the first, I didn’t have to break stride. My first touch was good and I’ve managed to put it in.”

“It was a bit of a scuff for the second but it found the corner and to score two goals at Wembley is an unbelievable feeling.”

But, despite the elation the players felt at the final whistle, Donaldson was quick to point out that a win at Wembley is always for the fans.

“The fans have been incredible all season especially in the last few months when we haven’t played very well and this is for them. The manager said this our time to repay them and we’ve done that.”
