‘It’s brilliant for everyone involved with the club,’ was John Sheridan’s reaction to his side reaching Wembley after a hard-fought JPT Northern Area final against Oldham Athletic was settled by Jack Lester’s late winner.

Sheridan, a winner at the old national stadium with Sheffield Wednesday, added: ‘Obviously we’ll be trying to win the final, but I’ve told the lads to enjoy the occasion because getting to any Wembley final is a great achievement.

‘Our league position still isn’t good, but over the last seven or eight games the lads have been showing character and belief.’

Involvement in the final, on Sunday 25 March, means the Sheffield United league fixture is to be re-arranged.

Wembley ticket information is already available on the official club website.
