Tomorrow afternoon Bacup Borough FC play their biggest game of the season so far when they face FC St Helens in the semi-final of the Macron Cup at the Brian Boys Stadium.

Another bumper crowd is expected to make the trip up Cowtoot Lane hoping to see the Valley's number one club make more history. And after last weekend's success in the Edward Case semi-final against Staffordshire club Abbey Hulton United who would bet against them.

Borough come into the semi-final off the back of victories in the previous rounds to Ilkley Town AFC, Steeton AFC and South Liverpool FC. And with players eager to make it two finals in the same season the atmosphere tomorrow afternoon should be electric.

The togetherness of the squad has been a major factor in the clubs success

Speaking to the manager Brent Peters about the big game, he said; "It's going to be a tough game against good opposition. We know what FC St Helens are all about, and we'll need to be on it from the first whistle.

"We will be telling the players exactly what we told them last week. It will be a message of 'taking the opportunity' when it arrives. Don't let the moment pass you by because hundreds of players would give their right arm to be in this position. Some never even reach a semi-final or final of any kind. Our players are more than capable of delivering the good against any team. Seize the moment and leave everything on the pitch."

Brent Peters fully focused and committed to the journey of this young team

The majority of the team have been together for the past two to three seasons now, and if everything goes to plan and this young borough team are able to drive on to victory it would be their biggest win to date.

Supporters are advised to arrive early - Gates open 1pm.

Admission: £6 Adult - £3 OAP/U18s - U5s Free
