Garry Wood reckons victory for Formartine in the Highland League Cup would be the biggest prize in the club’s history.
For the former Ross County and Inverness forward, it is a chance to stock up his own medal haul, too.
Wood experienced cup final joy and pain during his career in the Scottish leagues, winning one and losing one.
He came on as a substitute in Ross County’s 3-0 defeat by Dundee United in 2010 in the Scottish Cup.
But Wood was also part of the side that won the Challenge Cup under Jimmy Calderwood the following year.
And even now he still has the same sense of anticipation ahead of big games with prizes on the line.
“Obviously, it’s better winning cup finals but they are always great occasions whatever the outcome,” he said.
“We lost in the Scottish Cup final but I have won the Challenge Cup final when I was in the leagues as well.
“That’s what you look back on when your career is finished, the trophies you have won.
“A cup final is a cup final and form goes out the window as we know it’s going to be a tough game.”
Wood admits Formartine have struggled against Cove in recent years.
A strong rivalry and regular meetings in league and cups, the two sides know almost everything there is to know about one another.
But despite that, the versatile Wood, who has played in defence as well as up front this season, will go into the final with an open mind.
He said: “It doesn’t matter who you play in the final, it’s always going to be a tough game.
“We are under no illusions that we will need to bring our ‘A’ game if we want to win the trophy.
“For the club, it will be the biggest trophy we have won but we know we are against a tough opponent in Cove, who we have struggled against over the past few years.
“It’s all about who handles it best on the day.”
While Cove are still hunting a double, Wood admits the season is on the line.
“It’s our only chance of silverware this year, so we will be looking to go and secure that,” he said.
“It doesn’t add any pressure to us, we’re in a final, we’ve got a chance of winning it, so it’s just about focusing on that.”
