Drew impressed with Droitwich's 'superb' defending against rivals Evesham

BOSS Adam Drew praised Droitwich’s quality defensive showing following their 37-3 home victory over Midlands Three West (South) rivals Evesham.

Droitwich made it 12 wins out of 12 on Saturday at the Glyn Mitchell Memorial Ground to move a step closer to an instant return to Midlands Two West (South) after relegation last season.

The result proved to be more comfortable than the previous encounter between the two sides in October last year which saw Drew’s men come from behind to record a 35-19 victory.

Drew said: “It wan all-round excellent performance against a very good Evesham side.

“It was a big game for us, we knew we had to perform and it was probably one of the best displays I have seen for many years.

“We approached everything with the right attitude and to beat Evesham by such a big margin speaks wonders.

“Our defence was superb as Evesham didn’t score, it was us who gave them the three points.”

Droitwich will be hoping it isn’t a case of unlucky 13 on Saturday when they travel to second placed Ledbury who sit 11 points behind the league leaders.

But with a full strength squad at his disposal, Drew told the Standard it will take a very good team to stop the Droitwich steamroller.

“I’m under no illusion that we will go the whole season unbeaten, if we perform badly we are going to lose,” he added.

“We won’t be taking Ledbury lightly but it’s time to stamp some authority on the league.

“I want us to focus on each game as it comes and not think about going the whole season winning all 22 games.

“If we look that far ahead we might go off the boil.

“Yes we have a small eye on it but at the moment, all I’m saying is it will take a very good team to beat us.”
