Should they make it through, Blackhurst will face fellow Fylde coast outfit Reform FC, who beat Plungington Celtic 3-1 in the other semi-final last week.

Mark Spedding’s side made it to the final for the second time in four years and are already preparing for the their big night at Leyland on April 9th.

Blackhurst manager Steve Spencer said: “We’ve done brilliantly to get to the semi-final and hopefully we make it an all Blackpool final with a victory tonight. It will be a tough game, but we are in great form at the moment.

“We’ve been underdogs all the way through this cup run, beating last year’s winners Mill Hill in the last round.

“It would set up a dream final against Reform, let’s hope a few people from Blackpool turn-up to cheer us on tonight.”

Former Blackpool star Adam, who provided kits and equipment for the side at the start of the season, will miss the game due to international duty with Scotland.

But the Stoke City midfielder said he’ll be getting updates throughout.

“I’ll be glued to my phone to find out how they get on,” he said.

“It’s been great to come down to games this season and cheer the lads on. “Hopefully I’ll be able to watch them if they can make it through to the final.”

Kick-off tonight is 7:30pm, admission is £4.
