Millers have a point to prove

Liam Moakes 8th Mar, 2018

FECKENHAM joint assistant manager Tom Davies was left to rue the fact the Millers were denied the chance to bounce back from their disappointing defeat to Droitwich when the inclement weather put paid to Saturday’s Presidents (League) Cup semi-final at home to Hampton.

Following the Worcestershire Junior Cup semi-final exit to Droitwich, Aaron Blackwood’s Feckenham were keen to make amends in another cup last four clash against fellow Midland League Division Two outfit Hampton, but the snowy weather had other ideas.

Davies said: “We’re naturally gutted the weekend’s game was postponed. Following the Droitwich game we all wanted to get back on to the pitch to put things right.

“Unfortunately due to the postponements we’re looking at a busy March and April with midweek games accompanying weekend fixtures.

“It’s something, although taxing on all involved, that we look forward to as we know it’s easier to maintain a good run of form with the games coming thick and fast.

“This Saturday we visit local rivals Fairfield Villa in the Evesham Hospital Junior Cup, with Fairfield in much better form since our last meeting which proved to be a good contest.”

The sixth-placed Millers, with games in hand still firmly in the hunt for a top two finish, return to league action on Tuesday when they visit Coton Green.

One player who will not be involved is striker Connor Perry-Holmes, who has agreed to join Division One side Littleton.

Davies added: “This is a blow as Con has been a good player for us so far this campaign but we wish him all the best.

“We’re hopeful we have a new body coming in, not a direct replacement, but a highly thought of player to provide competition for places.”
