Millers buoyant ahead of League Cup semi-final

Liam Moakes 3rd Jan, 2018

FECKENHAM joint assistant manager Tom Davies believes the in-form Millers are raring to go ahead of Saturday’s League Cup semi-final against Hampton despite the frustration of seeing their league encounter against Earlswood Town postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Aaron Blackwood’s men have taken 16 points from their past seven Midland League Division Two games to rise to fourth in the table and also progressed in two cup competitions in November.

However, Saturday’s scheduled home match against Earlswood fell victim to the weather, leaving Feckenham to turn their attentions to this Saturday’s (1.45pm) Presidents Cup last four clash against third placed Hampton at the Entaco.

Davies said: “After a good all-round performance and pleasing result (4-1 win) at Pelsall Villa, it was frustrating not being able to play at the weekend.

“With Saturday’s League Cup semi-final in mind against a very strong Hampton outfit, we’ve ensured we ticked ourselves over on Saturday and Tuesday to help try to maintain the standards we’ve set in recent weeks and months.

“With both sides in good form and at the higher reaches of the table, it makes for an exciting cup fixture.

“A special mention must also go to 16-year-old Dan Sutton who, after several reserve team fixtures, came off the bench to put in an impressive performance against Pelsall. We’ve got some very talented youngsters within the club at the minute and it’s testament to the work Rob Donnelly, Gerry Corrigan and Spencer Stirling are doing with them.”
