TENBURY United player-manager Aaron Morris says that the team will not take anything for granted as they aim to add to their trophy collection this weekend.

United, who have already won Herefordshire League Division One, face Orleton Colts on Saturday in the final of the Leintwardine Cup - just two days after facing them in the league.

Tenbury beat Wellington Colts 4-0 last night in the Jock Handley Trophy final at Leominster.

Tonight (Thursday) will be a dress rehearsal for the Leintwardine Cup final when Tenbury and Orleton face each other in the league.

Orleton are on course to finish second and Morris said that both teams will not be taking the game lightly.

"They will want to finish second and be promoted, so it will not be a 'dead rubber' game," said Morris.

"We played them in the third game of the season and won 2-1, but we know that it will be a tough game."

It is a busy few days for Tenbury, but Morris said that he doesn't mind the prospect of playing three games in four days if it means that the team wins a treble.

"It is not helpful, but we have got a big squad, so can rotate the team between the games," said Morris.

"We have been having a good turn-out for our matches and some have gone to away games.

"The supporters have been really good this year and we have had about 50 to 60 people watching.

"It will be tougher next year in the Premiership, but if we strengthen, then hopefully we will be ok."
