JORDAN Davies paid tribute to his players after Oswestry ended the season as unbeaten league champions.

The Eagles secured the Midlands Four West title in emphatic style and can now look ahead to a higher grade of rugby next season.

Before then the Shropshire club will contest the final of the Midlands Vase in Worcester next month with Davies and the rest of the squad awaiting confirmation of their opponents.

Head coach Davies said: "Its been a great season following the turbulent two years of Covid and really has shown the boys' resilience and passion for the Oswestry jersey.

"We managed to build a strong squad of players before the season started and everyone really has played their part, both the first and second team players have played an integral role in sustaining numbers at training and subsequent performances on the pitch."

Davies said the club's success was down to each player embracing the club ethos and playing 15 man rugby.

Davies said: "Early on the players bought into our 15 man totally rugby approach and despite some really tough games throughout the campaign we played with confidence in our skillset and each other, and combined with heads up rugby its been a joy to watch."

The former Llanidloes coach was now looking ahead to ending the season on a high with Midlands Vase glory.
