DROITWICH director of rugby Adam Drew insisted he was "not worried" about his side’s winless start to the Midlands One West season.

Worcester extended Droitwich’s losing run to three matches last Saturday with a 21-18 victory at Weston’s Fields.

Bobby Scott-Walker scored all of Droitwich’s points but two tries from Andy Reid and 11 points from the boot of Ollie Meadows including a late penalty proved to be the difference.

The third straight loss leaves the Glyn Mitchell Memorial Ground outfit at the foot of the table.

But Drew said he was encouraged by the performances of his fringe players who are having to step up in the absence of many first-team regulars.

And he stressed the defeats were making Droitwich “bigger and stronger” as they look ahead to Friday night’s trip to Dudley Kingswinford (7.30pm).

“We have got more than 10 players missing at the moment and seven of those are forwards,” Drew said.

“It was a big ask to play any side in this league and expect to win with that many players out.

“All the lads that we brought into the fold played really well and the match could have gone either way.

“The wins will come so I am not worried about it at the moment.

“It is all a great learning curve for us.

“The crucial element is the depth of the squad and that’s what we are working on.

“But the performances the lads are putting in have been really satisfying.

“As soon as we get players coming back then we will start winning some games.”
