WITTON Albion's young hero goal-keeper Brett Walker is set for his first team chance, but not on Saturday when promotion chasers Blyth Spartans are at Wincham Park.
Instead, loan 'keeper Jon Worsnop will play his final game for Albion before returning to Droylsden, as fellow borrowed clubmates Gary Burke and Neil Hall already have done.
Hall's return opens the way for Mark Jones to stake his claim for a permanent place.
Walker's performance that helped Witton win the Cheshire Senior Cup and the obvious promise of Jones has persuaded Vince to trust the youngsters.
Jones scored in the Senior Cup win while 18-year-old Walker was having trials with Stockport County.
The manager said: 'It is a big week for him and will stay with the reserves at the weekend but then, with eight games to go, it is the perfect time to put him in.
'Mark has proved his fitness and been magnificent. There's no reason for me to keep the shackles on him any longer.'
The only loan player remaining is defender Darren Hockenhull, who Stalybridge are letting stay until the end of the season and Albion hope will be with them at the start of the next campaign.
Blyth arrive at Wincham Park as the UniBond League form team and having beaten Witton 5-1 in January. But Albion must draw or win to keep alive their own play-off chances.
Vince added: 'They are the best side we have played and should win the league. It's a massive game for us and we must make sure we don't make mistakes, keep our discipline and stop them playing. They serve their forwards very well and we must stop that happening.'
Liam McGuire, out with ligament damage since the New Year, will play for the reserves on Saturday.
Meanwhile Vince resisted the temptation to play first teamers in the second string in their crucial Mid Cheshire League title match against Middlewich, which they lost.
'The reserves are there to promote youth and it would have been wrong for me to hijack their game, even if it did cost us the title,' he added.
