Newcastle hope to impress in Bishops Castle Cup final showpiece

First published in Sport

NEWCASTLE manager John Goodridge says that his team will "give it a good go" as they aim to upset rivals Bishops Castle in the Bishops Castle Cup Final on Saturday.

Castle go into the game as firm favourites, but Goodridge says that anything can happen in a one-off game.

"It's a local derby and we will want to put up a good showing," said Goodridge.

"There's always quite a few people who go up to watch the game, so we will give it our best shot and try and win the game."

Newcastle last won the trophy three years ago when they beat Castle 3-0.

And, they will be going into the game on the back of lifting the Alfred Sparey Cup last weekend.

A brace from Tom Bright and a goal from Billy Hyatt secured a 3-1 win for Newcastle against Sunday Saints at Presteigne.

"Bishops Castle will be going into the game as favourites, but both sets of players are looking forward it and there should be a good social affair afterwards," said Goodridge.

"We finished fifth in the Mid Wales League South and had some good results, as well as dropping some silly points.

"Hopefully, we will finish the season with another trophy."
