8:00pm Wednesday 11th September 2013 in Sport
DROITWICH continued their excellent record record in the North Midlands Shield as they saw off Edwardians 17-14.
Spa, who have reached the last four finals, progressed in the competition despite conceding two tries early on in Solihull The young Droitwich side didn’t panic and their line-out provided a plentiful supply of ball, with hooker Rob Poke’s accurate throwing a real bonus.
Two penalties by Bobby Scott-Walker reduced the deficit but Droitwich stepped it up a gear in the second half.
It was from a strong run by man-of-the-match Glenn Topping that saw Steve Poke move the ball quickly to find captain James Shewell, who powered over.
Scott-Walker was unsuccessful with the conversion attempts but did add two more penalties to hand Droitwich a narrow lead.
Droitwich start the Midlands Division Two West (South) at home to Old Leamingtonians on Saturday (3pm ko).
