Chester FC Youth could be just one win away from securing the North West Youth Alliance Premier Division title.
The young Blues will be crowned champions if they win at Altrincham on Thursday and second placed Ashton Athletic fail to beat Curzon Ashton.
Calum McIntyre’s side were forced to watch on last season as Altrincham pipped them to the title but they have the chance to right that wrong this week.
Thursday marks the start of a busy fortnight for the Blues, who will be going for glory on three fronts, with a NWYA Premier Division Cup final against AFC Fylde on Sunday and a NWYA Open Cup final at home to Ashton Athletic on Sunday, May 15 (2.30pm) at the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium.
“It could be a really, really big night for us,” said McIntyre, whose side won 6-0 at home to Salford on Sunday.
“The lads have been fantastic all season and have just kicked on since Christmas.
Altrincham are obviously the reigning champions so it would be an even bigger bonus to go and win the league at their place. We obviously missed out last season on the final day with a really young squad, it is pretty much the same group of players and they are chomping at the bit to put that right.
“We have never even got a point at Altrincham in the league as things seem to go against us there so we’re going to need to be at our best to get the job done.”
