NORTHWICH, fresh from their Twickenham triumph, are already plotting a glittering future.
They want to plunder their new-found fame and playing fortunes to become the 'senior club in town'.
Chairman Sam Naylor said: 'Going undefeated all season - if we do - will never happen again.
'We have got to make sure everything we have achieved makes us a stronger club on and off the pitch. It must not be allowed to go to waste.
'It gives us a platform to attract play-ers, support and sponsorship.
'Next year's league is going to be tough but we aim to prove we're the senior club now.'
About 500 supporters followed North-wich to Twickenham, where they beat Bradford Salem 18-13 in the final of the EDF Senior Vase.
They have won the South Lancs and Cheshire League and are in the final of the Cheshire Vase meaning an unprecedented treble is likely.
Naylor added: 'Our main sponsor, John Cosgrove, is committed to North-wich and we are looking to develop the club at Moss Farm. There is a lot going on behind the scenes.
'Our South African players (David Khanyile and Vuyol Pasiya) aim to come back next year and we have other exciting player news.'
Fly half and leading points scorer Gary Bell, who moved from neighbours Winnington Park to Northwich for one season before quitting, has pushed his retirement back another year.
Chris Dale, former England Colt back row, is set to return to Northwich from New Brighton and his younger brother, Richard, is seen as an equally exciting prospect.
Naylor's son Sam will be back from a season in Australian rugby by the start of next season.
Northwich have always trailed neighbours Winnington Park from the days when a club's stature was decided by the quality of fixtures it could negotiate and throughout the league system.
Next year they will both play in North West Two while at the same time talking about the chances of a merger.
Northwich returned from Twickenham to a reception by 200 supporters at Moss Farm, where the partying went on until closing time.
They can expect a civic reception from Vale Royal Borough Council.
They still have three league games to go and on Saturday are at Burnage.
Northwich have won 25 and drawn the other of their 26 games, but the EDF Vase was in danger of slipping away from them.
'It could have all evaporated in the last few minutes,' said Naylor.
