Jason Cadden had described Leamington's fourth qualifying round tie at Ossett Town as their FA Cup semi-final.
Now, after a 3-2 victory over Ossett, they have their own final to anticipate after being handed a first round date with Colchester United.
The Brakes manager described Saturday's defeat of Ossett - who play three levels higher in the the UniBond Premier league - as " absolutely superb" and he predicted that Leamington will suffer a case of cup fever.
"We wanted an away game against a League club and we've got it - it's absolute quality," said Cadden. "We've already played seven matches to get to this stage and to get through to the first round in the first season back in the FA Cup is incredible.
"It's going to be a fantastic occasion at Colchester."
More than 600 Brakes fans made the trip to Yorkshire on Saturday to see the Midland Alliance side recover from falling behind inside ten minutes to James Walshaw's header to win 3-2 after goals from Josh Blake and brothers, Jon and Richard Adams.
Blake lashed home the equaliser following an indirect free-kick on 29 minutes and Jon Adams blasted home from 25 yards three minutes later before his brother finished off a surging run by Leon Morgan.
Even a red-card for skipper Morgan after a handball which resulted in Walshaw scoring from the spot could not spoil what was the best result for Leamington since they were reformed in 2000.
