WORCESTER Minor Cup action beckons for Tenbury’s premier two football sides this weekend – with both hoping they can recapture past glories in the competition.

Tenbury United – who won the cup in 2017 – host Feckenham Seconds on Saturday while Tenbury Town, who have also reached the final in recent times, will visit Worcester City Royals.

Both games should have originally have taken place last weekend but were postponed due to the downpours that plagued the central part of the country.

United head into the competition sitting top of Herefordshire League Division One and joint-boss Aaron Morris says the cup is one of their top priorities this season.

“In terms of the cups we are playing in, it’s the one I want to win most,” said Morris. “We won it a few years back and it’s a good day out.

“We want to win everything we enter. It’s not like we are professionals where we are playing Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday, Tuesday, loads of games.

“We have 24 league games and on top of that the cup games take your season to up between 30-40 games. And it's not like we are running 11 miles a game like the top pros!”

Morris admits visitors Feckenham are an unknown quantity, adding: “We don’t know anything about them which sometimes works in your favour and sometimes it doesn’t.

“They are doing quite well in their league but then again we don’t know the standard they play at.

“I guess they might look at us, see we are top of our league, played six, won five and have their ideas of us.

“It’s been four weeks since we’ve played which is not ideal but at least the lads have had a rest and a few with niggles are fit again.”

Tenbury Town, meanwhile, will journey to a Worcester City Royals side flying high near the top of the Cheltenham League Third Division, who they also know little about.

Town manager Keiran Fish said: “We played a team in their division, Malvern Vale, a year or two ago in the same cup and we beat them but that’s not very much to go on, of course.

“You don’t know what’s going to happen in these games – we’ve played a few Worcester teams before, some have been good, some have been bad.

“We got to the final three or four years ago but we have a completely different team now. There’s a few still here but a lot have moved on.

“But we will be giving it 100% and hopefully we can win on Saturday because I think is pretty much the only cup we are left in.”
