OSWESTRY bring the curtain down on their home programme when Woodrush visit Glanville Park in the North Midlands Cup on Saturday.

The border club enjoyed a solid campaign in Counties Two Midlands West (North) with a respectable top six finish.

However coach Jordan Davies hopes to prolong his tenure at the helm by guiding Oswestry to the regional cup final and backed his players to do the job on Saturday.

The Eagles go into the game bidding to maintain their dreams of silverware and are just one win and 80 minutes away from a place in the North Midlands Cup final.


The match also represents the final home game for coach Jordan Davies who will step down at the end of the campaign with ex-Welshpool coach Dai Roberts waiting in the wings to take over. 

Davies hopes to go out on a high and bring silverware back to Glanville Park with Woodrush standing in their way and a place in the final.

The former Llanidloes coach said: “We look forward to welcoming Woodrush to Granville Park on Saturday for the North Midlands Cup semi final. 

“They are in the equivalent division to us in the southern leagues so its always exciting to face the unknown. 

“They also finished in a similar mid table position to us so its a good marker to know we will be in for a fight.”

Davies hoped for a strong squad as the Eagles bid to end their home programme on a high in front of their own fans.

He said: “We are all excited by the prospect and I am sure we will have a strong squad out and look forward to put on a good rugby display for the home crowd as it is our last home game of the season and my last home game as Oswestry Rugby Club head coach.”
