A FAMILIAR face will be returning to Ludlow Rugby Club for a cup clash this Saturday.

Former Ludlow head coach Dave Irish will be bringing his Malvern side to The Linney for a North Midlands Shields showdown.

Irish resigned from the Ludlow hot-seat last season.

“The cup game brings me face-to-face with players whom I grew to know well during my time at Ludlow,” said Irish

“I am sure they will want to try to put one over on us so we are looking forward to a highly competitive match.”
