MELTON Mowbray FC bosses insist the league is still their priority despite reaching a county cup final.
The Senior League side booked their place in the County FA Intermediate Cup final after an excellent 4-1 semi-final win at Houghton Rangers on Saturday.
Melton last won county honours six years ago when they lifted the Saturday Trophy.
Joint managers Cliff Thornton and Matt Curtis are delighted with their cup form and were quick to pay tribute to the off-the-field contributions of chairman Sam Ellis and secretary Simon Ward.
Ellis is hoping to build the club a new ground in Melton, but acces to FA funding is dependant on the team’s promotion to Senior League Premier Division.
Thornton said: “The lads are really enjoying their football at the minute, but the main focus is the league and promotion.
“We still face some tough matches ahead and can’t lose focus now.
“It would be good for the town if we can achieve promotion and hopefully move us towards our own ground.”
