ftp file starting with particular name on Windows box to Unix box using shell script

Hello all !

I'm trying to write a shell script (bash) to ftp a file starting with particular name like "Latest_" that is present on a Windows box to UNIX server. Basically I want to set this script in the cron so that daily the new build that is posted on the Windows box can be downloaded to the UNIX box for the deployment. Could anyone please help me out in doing this..? Thanks much in advance.

Code:
ftp somewinbox << EOF
USER me mypassword
cd /directory
mget Latest_*
bye
EOF

Thanks very much Jim !!
That worked for me...Infact I was trying with normal get and when using regular expression like Latest*, it's erring out. Anyway..thanks for your timely help.!
