COLWYN Bay skipper Paul Jenkins has challenged his side to win all their remaining games – starting at Lytham today.
Jenkins believes a top-four finish is a realistic prospect for his seventh-placed side, who gave the entire Premier League a flying start by waiting 11 matches for a win.
“We had a terrible start but now we can make up for that by mounting an even more spectacular finish,” said the Bay captain.
“We had last weekend off without a fixture so that was a chance for us to recharge our batteries ready for a fresh start today.”
Lytham looks on paper the toughest test facing the Bay, who have four clubs from the bottom six to meet in their run-in.
“The majority of the top sides are off our agenda and the way is open for us to string together a sequence of results that could yet secure us a respectable final position,” Jenkins added.
“That would be an achievement in itself considering the dire position we were in on June 7 when we were still waiting to break our duck.”
The seasiders will certainly start favourites when they host Wallasey and Formby, followed by a sterner test at Prestatyn.
Then comes bottom club St Helens Recs away, Hightown at home and finally lowly Maghull away.
“It’s not the toughest run-in in the world, and although no game is easy at this level and every one of those sides commands respect, clearly there are points there to be had if we can get our act together,” he added.
Jenkins hopes to have a full-strength squad available for today’s trip having held Lytham to a draw in May.
The skipper added: “The talent is undoubtedly here and provided we can produce a more even level week in week out then the opportunity is there if we take it.”
Colwyn Bay Seconds are without a match today as Glamorgan are still at their Rhos-on-Sea ground, the Welsh County hosting Leicestershire in a Pro 40 clash tomorrow.
