Adam Gusterson has admitted that Harleston Town’s record-breaking run in the Norfolk Senior Cup has whetted the club’s appetite to make the move into the Thurlow Nunn League.

Town reached the semi-finals for the first time in their history, before being knocked out on penalties by Fakenham Town on Wednesday night.

However, having seen off the likes of Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division side Great Yarmouth Town earlier in the competition, Gusterson has revealed plans are under way for Harleston to make the move up in the near future.

“We want to go up — no doubt about it,” he said.

“We either get floodlights or we move. Ideally we get lights where we are because that is our home.

“There are a few things to get sorted, but the commitment from everyone at the club is to get that sorted.

“We have got to keep the boys hungry by showing that ambition as a club. If not, people will not stick around.

“It is not easy to go up, but there are conversations ongoing with a view to going up at the end of next season should we be in the right position in the table.”

Meanwhile, on his side’s run to the semis, Gusterson added: “It has been an unbelievable effort from everyone.

“I thought we were the better side on the night, but it was not to be.”
