The young Seasiders beat Rochdale 1-0 in their semi-final to get through.

A win would cap off a fine season for Ciaran Donnelly's side, who remain top of the North West Youth Alliance league table with just two games to play.

Blackpool's 4-0 win over Fleetwood Town on Saturday means they remain ahead of Burnley on goal difference ahead of fixtures against Wrexham and Morecambe.
