BISHOPS Castle will have the town behind them this Saturday as they try and bring home the Mercian League Division One Cup.

Andy Green's boys will face Childs Ercall in the showpiece at Telford's New Bucks Head and will be backed by a number of supporters.

"We are going to have a 50-seater bus for the players and supporters and some will be driving up, so hopefully we will have a good few people there," said Green.

"A lot of the players have never played there before, so are looking forward to it.

"I think it's the first time that Bishops Castle have got to the final, so we will be going there with our heads held high and hopefully will win the game."

Childs Ercall are top of Mercian League Division One, while Bishops Castle are fourth.

Green's team, who beat Wroxeter Rovers in a dramatic penalty-shoot to secure their final place, go into the game on the back of a 3-3 away draw against nine-man Rock Rovers.

The home team came from 3-1 down to snatch a point, with the equalising goal coming in the last minute.

"We should have won the game, especially as we were 3-1 up and they had two players sent off," said Green.

"But, I was really pleased with the performance overall, which bodes well for Saturday's cup final."

Green opened the scoring for Castle before Mark Griffiths made it 2-0 before half-time.

Rock Rovers pulled a goal back before the home team were reduced to 10 men.

Luke Mellor's goal seemed to have won it for Castle, but Rovers amazingly scored two goals to earn the point, despite having another player dismissed.
