JONNY King revealed East Christchurch SSC's route to the FA Sunday Cup quarter-finals had been a voyage into the unknown.

Winger King, who has played for the Bournemouth Hayward Sunday League outfit for five seasons, had not until this campaign experienced the national competition.

He had a hand in all three goals in the second-round win against Navy Inn and found the back of the net against Portland in the third round.

King told the Daily Echo: "It was great to get in the cup in the first place after we went unbeaten in the league last season.

"Initially, we were just pleased to be part of the competition and it was an unknown quantity because we were playing teams we had never faced before.

"In Sunday football, you normally know the teams you play against and recognise their players but we have been playing teams we know nothing about.

"We are focused on ourselves and playing to our strengths."

King had been unavailable for the fourth-round win at Broadwater and admitted his delight with a home draw for Sunday's last-eight clash with Birstall Stamford at Hurn Bridge (2pm).

"I am really looking forward to it," said King. "We have done well this season and are still in a couple of cup competitions.

"It would be a great achievement for the club to reach the semi-finals."
