Bacup Borough gear up for a Wednesday night clash with South Liverpool FC in the semi-final of the Edward Case Cup.

The fixture was scheduled for last Saturday, but due to emergency pitch maintenance needed the referee deemed the surface unplayable and rescheduled for Wednesday under the floodlights.

Everybody associated with the club still remember the fantastic memories of last seasons competition. The atmosphere of the semi-final victory over FC St Helens on penalties at the Brian Boys Stadium will go down in the history books. And who could ever forget Michael Gervin lifting aloft the cup after the final with Ellesmere Rangers in front of 700 plus at Congleton Town. Memories that we all remember with such fondness.

On Wednesday evening Brent Peters side have another opportunity to write their names down in club history by reaching back to back finals.

Between them and a place in the final are South Liverpool FC a team that is having an impressive season in the North West Counties Division One North under the management of Martin Ryman. They currently sit in fourth place in the league and securing one of those important play-off positions is certainly within their grasp.

The home support will play a major factor in the teams chances of reaching the final

Tomorrow's game will most definitely be a testing challenge for Borough, and if a second final is on the cards they'll need to be on their toes from the first whistle against opposition that possess the quality to create problems if given the chance.

Many of the Borough faithful would say that this season hinges on this game with South Liverpool FC. The disappointment of dropping valuable points against teams lingering at the foot of the league has been their achilles heel and placed them in a challenging position where the play-off places are concerned.

The game under the floodlights should attract a healthy crowd inside the Brian Boys Stadium with no other local sides in action.

Lets create the perfect atmosphere for the lads as they go in search of defending their trophy.

ADMISSION: £6 Adults - £3 OAP/U18s - U5s Free (CASH TURNSTILE ONLY)
