CHORLEY skipper Jim Fazackerley has called on his players to stamp their authority on the Northern Premier League with a quick-fire double this weekend.

Fazackerley's men travel to Fleetwood tomorrow before St Annes then visit Windsor Park on Monday.

And the skipper has set his sights on two wins as Chorley aim to launch on assault on the league title.

"Fleetwood are a very unpredictable side and always give a hard game, but their pitch offers a little bit early doors to the bowlers so it's quite important we win the toss," said Fazackerley.

"As for St Annes, they're a similar mid-table team who have a few good players.

"But we've got a few good players of our own and I'm sure we'll win at home so long as the weather is kind."

Chorley bounced back from their opening day defeat to Netherfield with a comprehensive win over local rivals Leyland Motors last week, who they crushed by 10 wickets.

Pakistani professional Stephen John was the star of the show with a six-wicket haul against his former club, before opening batsmen Tom Smith and Ian Mawdesley then guided the home side past Motors' miserly total.

Promising young batsman Tom Smith has been rewarded for his excellent early season form with a call up to the England U-19 team which takes on a Kent County 2nd team at Canterbury this weekend.

As a result, he will miss Chorley's clash with Fleetwood.
