Grimsby Town striker Danny North wants to relive the Wembley dream - only this time to come out of it with a winner's medal.

North was part of the Mariners' team that reached the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final last season, only to end up on the losing side to Milton Keynes Dons.

Now the League 2 outfit are set to start this season's competition with a Wednesday evening first round tie at Chesterfield.

And after collecting only two points from their first four games of the League campaign, North says the Mariners have a double incentive at Saltergate.

The Grimsby-born striker, 21 next Sunday, says: "Winning this game could kick-start our League season as well as hopefully putting us on the way back to Wembley.

"Apart from when we gave a poor performance against Bradford we've not played badly and we've done really well in some games.

"We deservedly beat Tranmere, a decent League 1 team, in the Carling Cup and then in the next round did okay at Blackburn against a very good Premiership side.

"We took the lead and battled away, but although we kept the ball pretty well it took us ages to get it back whenever we lost possession.

"We ended up losing 4-1, but we certainly didn't disgrace ourselves or League 2 and there were a lot of positives that came out of the game for us.

"Unfortunately for me I was on the subs' bench that night and didn't get on the pitch, but it was still a great experience to be involved at a Premiership ground."

North will hope to be back in the starting line-up on Wednesday as Grimsby take on a Chesterfield team who have already beaten them this season.

The Spireites won 1-0 at Blundell Park on 23rd August, so revenge will also be on the minds of the Mariners as they look for Trophy progress.

North says: "We weren't bad against them at our place, but we'll aim to be better on Wednesday and push on into the next round.

"Our run to Wembley was great last season, including knocking out teams like Huddersfield and Doncaster - who were the Trophy holders.

"Walking out at Wembley was an unbelievable experience, one of the best of my life - and I'll be doing everything I can to make it happen again this season."
