“There were a lot of young lads on our coach who are coming to Wembley for the first time. They got excited when they saw the arches. This is the first time we've been since it was built. It's impressive.
“Wembley is a great stadium - it's nearly up to the standard of Carrow Road.
“We thought we would come as we are getting on a bit in years and now could be the last time we support a team at Wembley.
“I think they are going to win 2-1.”
Lisa Wilson, 31, from Mattishall near Dereham, brought her daughter Millie, 12 and son Jamie, 8.
She said: “We thought we would support a local team and we thought it was a good opportunity to come and look around Wembley. The more peoplethe better.
She said there was a good atmosphere on the coaches as they drove down.
“Every time we saw a Wroxham coach everybody cheered. Some of the kids have painted their faces they have flags.”
