Drew: Droitwich not taking anything for granted despite 21 point gap

Craig Gibbons 23rd Feb, 2017

BOSS Adam Drew praised Droitwich’s excellent second half display at Manor Park on Saturday to record their 16th straight Midlands Three West (South) victory.

Droitwich have a 21 point lead at the top of the table following their 57-10 over Park as second placed Ledbury suffered a 39-14 defeat at third placed Evesham.

Despite maintaining their 100 per cent record, Drew admitted his side were not performing at their best.

“In the first half we did not seem to gel so we had to alter the shape a little after the break,” he said.

“After the break we was excellent and Manor Park could not live with us.

“We may be 21 points clear at the top but we are not taking anything for granted.

“There’s still a few tough games left and even though we are in a comfortable position at the moment, it could all change.

“Our main priority right now is to keep playing good rugby and like I have said before, it will take a good team to beat us.”

Droitwich are away from league action on Saturday as they welcome Midlands Two West (South) outfit Malvern to the Glyn Mitchell Memorial Ground for a North Midlands Shield quarter-final clash.

And Drew is relishing the prospect of facing a higher-ranked side.

“It’s going to be a tough game but it will provide a benchmark for us against a team in a better tier,” he added.

“We are looking forward to it and hopefully we can perform at our best.”
