Craig Brown and his Met Police team-mates know one more win in The FA Cup will see them have a chance of going head-to-head with a Football League club, as they prepare for Saturday's tie at South Park.
The long-serving winger and Police Constable has spent nine years with the Met, after his dreams of a career in professional football were ended by injury.
Brown was on the books of Millwall as a youngster and spent a year as a pro with Leyton Orient before shin-splints saw him slip out of the full-time game.
But now he's hoping to help the Met seal their place in Sunday's First Round Proper draw and a dream tie against Bristol Rovers, where his younger brother plays.
He told FATV: "The FA Cup for the club is a fantastic achievement if we can get as far as we can
"The draws have been very kind to us at the moment and it's a really good opportunity for us to go that step further.
"For us as players, it's the opportunity of a lifetime. We don't know if that's ever going to come again."
On Saturday, the Met make the short journey across Surrey to South Park, who are one of the lowest ranked sides still left in the competition but Brown says there won't be any complacency in their camp.
"We'll prepare as we normally do and we won't underestimate them, so hopefully we'll get through to the First Round," he added.
