Wembley Will Never Lose Its Magic Says Chris

20 May 2015

Preston North End winger Chris Humphrey may have graced the Wembley pitch twice before, but the Jamaica international insists it will be just as special third time around.

Having played at the national stadium twice while at Shrewsbury Town, the 27-year-old knows exactly what to expect and tries to put into words just how it feels to be a part of such an occasion. 

"It's that feeling, even when you go the day before, and you look around Wembley and everything and it's empty and you just walk around the pitch and just look around and it's just like wow. 

"Every time it just blows you away and people say to me, 'yeah but you've been there twice, you're not going to have that feeling', you will have that feeling. It's hard to explain, you just get that feeling straight away, this is unbelievable. 

"I came off the bench the first time and started the second. When you start and you're in the tunnel, and you're walking out it's just an unbelievable feeling and I've been privileged to do that.

"I don't know what it is but Wembley is just the place you want to go and play and we've got the chance and this time, we're going to have the backing of the fans, Shrewsbury didn't have as many fans as what Preston are going to take so that will be new for me and it's going to be brilliant to play in front of all the fans that will be there. 

"They've backed us in their numbers away and it's just like an away game so you just know what they are going to be like and that's why I say this is a special, special day and hopefully we can do it and go up."
