Droitwich aiming for derby upset
6:00am Friday 1st November 2013 in Sport
MORE than local pride will be at stake on Saturday when Droitwich Spa and Fairfield Villa clash in the quarter-final of the President’s Cup on Saturday (1.30pm ko).
Spa go into the match on the back of an encouraging 2-1 win over Bredon in the Worcestershire FA Junior Cup, inspired by Nick Seasbourne’s double.
Droitwich, who are second-from-bottom in the Midland Combination Division One, want to build on that result.
But manager Colin Rudge is under no illusions who the favourites are.
He said: “Fairfield will be favourites, they have been consistently in the top five over the last few years.
“We’d obviously like to emulate their success.”
Meanwhile, Villa lost 2-1 to Inkberrow in the WFA Junior Cup on Saturday.
Joint-manager Paul Oakes said that the attitude of several players had not been good enough during several weeks where the squad has been depleted.
“It’s quarter-final and a derby, so I am expecting it to be very close,” said Oakes.
“We’ve had some players show a poor attitude about turning up for games so we’ve moved some them on and brought in some more.”
Villa are hoping to bring in former Alvechurch striker Keith Rostill.
