The other qualifying group features Wirral, Mid-Cheshire and Crewe DFAs.

This competition is for the county youth team management to have a look at players to represent the county at youth level in the forthcoming season.
Ciaran Clotworthy, junior head secretary at Runcorn Linnets, said: 'It is with great pleasure that we announce our whole U17s team have been selected to represent Runcorn District FA in the County Youth Cup Competition.
'This competition is open to all boys playing within the Runcorn District FA, so it is fantastic that the team as a whole have been chosen to represent our District FA.
'This is a huge honour for the boys and one that we hope as a Linnets family you will support them in.
'Lets get down there to support the lads and show how proud we are of our Linnet boys.'
Good luck lads!
