WHITCHURCH Rugby Club coach Jordan Davies has backed his players to end the Midlands League Two season on a high.

The Reds have endured an inconsistent campaign but ex-Oswestry coach Davies insisted the club’s aim of a top half finish remained within their grasp.

However, Davies insisted only a strong end to the season with victories in their final three games would be enough.

The Reds host Winnington Park on Saturday having enjoyed a solid February and March despite the annual interruption to the fixture schedule caused by the Six Nations tournament.


Victories over Vale of Lune, Altrincham Kersal and Kirkby Lonsdale have been in contrast to defeats to Liverpool St Helens, Firwood Waterloo and Douglas.

However, the Reds now sit in seventh spot with 45 points with a place in the top half of the table well within their grasp.

He said: “It’s been a real up and down season for us so far with wins against some of the big boys in the league and disappointing results against teams around bottom, however we are excited about the remaining three games after our last couple of wins. 

“We targeted the top half of the table and we could be sitting between fifth and seventh position come end of the season.

“So in terms of stabilising a solid position, particularly having moved leagues, and kick-starting the second team again who have had an incredible season, this season must be seen as a positive.”

Davies insisted the Reds would need to motivation having lost to Winnington and Burnage already this season who they will face along with Altrincham in their final fixtures.

“We have some serious motivation to finish strong having narrowly lost against both Winnington and Burnage away, so playing them at home are must wins.
“We are keen to build some momentum into the cup fixture versus Crewe and enjoy some exciting knockout rugby to finish the season.”
