Cleobury Mortimer Rugby Club captain Allan Shields ready for Tenbury derby in Midlands Four West (North)
Telford Hornets 13pts Cleobury Mortimer 33pts
CLEOBURY Mortimer captain Allan Shields is delighted with the spirit shown by his players this term.
Second-row Ivor Rutter highlighted that attitude with an impressive display in their success at Telford Hornets in the Midlands Junior Vase first round.
Shields is urging his men to continue their unbeaten start against local rivals Tenbury this Saturday.
“We have come down a league but we have come together as a team,” said Shields. “When things have gone against us, we have responded.”
Tries from David Leach, Dave Shorter, Nick Lewis, Dan Bird and Shields, who also kicked four conversions, fired Cleobury to cup success last weekend.
Cleobury led 14-3 at the break and were always in control.
Shields is now focusing on Saturday’s visit from Pete Stevens’ Tenbury in Midlands Four West (North).
“It’s a good local derby and we want to keep our good league performances going,” said Shields.
“We played Tenbury a few years ago, and they put a few points on us.”
Clee Hill host Warley this Saturday in Midlands Four West (North) and Bishops Castle travel to Cannock.
