Yet another Millers washout

Liam Moakes 15th Feb, 2018

QUITE incredibly, Feckenham are still to play a game in 2018 after seeing Saturday’s scheduled Midland League Division Two fixture at home to Bloxwich Town fall victim to another waterlogged pitch at the Entaco.

On a day of frustration for the club, the Reserves’ Stratford Alliance Division One fixture at Northfield Athletic was also postponed.

It was a similar story the previous midweek for the U18s, who came close to fulfilling their Worcestershire Midweek Youth Cup fixture against Kidderminster Harriers at the fifth time of asking, only for the game to be abandoned at half time due to heavy rainfall.

Should the weather gods finally smile on the Millers, they will face Moors Academy at the Tally Ho Training Centre in Edgbaston on Saturday.

Joint assistant manager Tom Davies said: “It was gutting to have yet another game called off but unfortunately it can’t be helped.

“Moors Academy are an ever-improving side and, after a close early-season encounter, it will be an interesting battle.”

Feckenham have been drawn to visit local rivals Fairfield Villa in the semi-final of the Evesham Hospital Cup on Saturday, March 10.

That weekend will draw an end to an important few weeks for Feckenham as they host Droitwich in the semi-final of the Worcestershire Junior Cup on Saturday, February 24 before entertaining Hampton on Saturday, March 3 in the last four of the Presidents (League) Cup.

Davies added: “Having been drawn against our neighbours Fairfield Villa in the Hospital Cup semi-final only adds to the spectacle and, with three semi-finals around the corner, it’s a period for the group to look forward.

“However, we still have ambitions to finish as high as possible in the league and put pressure on the favourites to get promoted, so for now that’s our main focus.”

The Millers remain sixth – eight points behind second placed Hampton with three games in hand.
