STEVE Castle has labelled tonight's FA Youth Cup tie with Colchester United as his side's "cup final".
St Albans City's youngsters tackle the Us at Clarence Park tonight (Tuesday) and manager Castle believes the tie is just rewards for their efforts so far.
"This is our cup final and the kids fully deserve it," Castle told the Herts Advertiser. "Alright they didn't quite perform at their highest away from home and they haven't in both ties (away from home) but they have at home. If they can match the performance they did against Hitchin and Thurrock it should be interesting."
Colchester United will certainly prove tough opposition for the young Saints.
