TENBURY RFC have been placed in Midlands Four West South after the Midlands League structure was finalised this week.

The Midlands Five West North champions have switched geographical sections after promotion and director of rugby Andy Black said the club have no issues with the move.

Black said: “We discussed it during the closing part of last season and we were more than happy to take on the challenge of that league.

“There are some very good local derbies for us – even though there’s no Clee Hill (who are in the North league), we have the likes of Bromyard and Claverdon. It’s a good league to be in.

“It was very Coventry-oriented last time we were in it but now it seems a bit more spread – we are not going to Coventry or Warwickshire every week.”

Elsewhere, last season’s Midlands Two West North champions Ludlow have had their Midlands One West place confirmed.

Cleobury Mortimer remain in Midlands Three West North and Clee Hill stay in Midlands Four West North, while Bishops Castle are in a newly-merged, expanded 12-team Midlands Five West South.

Midlands Five divisions have only featured six teams in recent years. But there is no spot for Church Stretton, who have resigned from the league.
