Here's the noise from Management at both teams:

How it feels to reach a County Cup Final:

Danielle Setterfield (HM Naval Base Manager)

"As a team we have worked hard all season managing to remain unbeaten to this point. We have secured the Devon Wednesday League title with still 4 games to go with a GD of 43 this far. The Naval Base also remains in contention for another 2 cups."

Lee Hodges (Plymouth Argyle FITC U19 Manager)

"It is a great achievement for our young team and we have had to overcome some strong, physical sides to get this far. We are all looking forward to the occasion but a Cup Final is a lot more enjoyable if you can win the game."

What style of play you can expect to see:

Danielle Setterfield (HM Naval Base Manager)

"Exciting, continuous, front foot football has seen us already score a club record amount of goals this season, we are delighted to be in the final and very much looking forward to playing Plymouth Argyle FITC."

Lee Hodges (Plymouth Argyle FITC U19 Manager)

"As part of the complete football pathway at Plymouth Argyle, we work to the same philosophy used in all areas of the club. We hope to provide spectators with an expansive, entertaining brand of football."

What has it taken to reach a County Cup Final:

Danielle Setterfield (HM Naval Base Manager)

"Hungry to go all out for the quadruple this season they have committed themselves to the Naval Base team whilst still carrying out their full military duties. This is extremely commendable and a true reflection of their dedication and passion for both the game and the service."

Lee Hodges (Plymouth Argyle FITC U19 Manager)

"As an education programme, the players combine rigorous training with a full academic schedule, so it takes dedication, hard work and ability to reach any Cup Final."
