LUDLOW RFC head coach Mikey Jones believes a top-four finish in Midlands One West is a more than achievable aspiration for his side this season.

“Sitting fourth in the table at Christmas is always pleasing and now we have to back it up the rest of the season,” said Jones.

“Fourth is going to be a hotly contested spot with Stratford just behind us and Whitchurch coming into some form.

“But we have to play all the sides again now and we will be looking to hold on to that fourth spot.

"Overall, it’s been a very pleasing start to the season for us.”
