David Moyes says that it remains his burning ambition to lift some silverware as Everton manager.

The closest the Scot has come to adding another trophy to the Goodison Park cupboard was in 2009 when Everton reached the FA Cup final, only to be beaten 2-1 by Chelsea.

Cheltenham Town are the first hurdle to be overcome in Moyes' 11th adventure in the competition as Blues boss.

And he hopes this can be the year where Everton go all the way, with victory at Whaddon Road on Monday evening sparking a successful cup run.

"I've always had a determination to succeed in all competitions we have been in," Moyes said. "It's never always worked out that way but every one we enter, we try to win.

"We will try and do the same with this one. It's an important competition for every set of supporters.

"Everton have had success at times and it's a trophy everyone wants to be involved in. We have been to one final and we got to the semi-final last year, so we will be doing everything we can to do it again."

Moyes admits that the pressures of the Premier League may have taken some of the magic away from the FA Cup in recent years - but it hasn't dampened his desire to get his hands on the trophy.

"I think it has lost its excitement a little bit but I think the further it goes on it gets better," he added.

"There is so much at stake to be in the Premier League - there is so much coverage in the media - that it has put the FA Cup in the background, but it's a cup competition that everyone wants to win."
