Oliver: 'It is vital we build on record breaking win'

Droitwich Editorial 25th Nov, 2016   0

DROITWICH Spa joint-manager Wayne Oliver has said his side must build on the momentum they have already built in recording the club’s biggest win in history.

The Saltmen put on their most ruthless display in their 32-year history on Saturday when they thrashed a stunned Sutton United 10-1.

And high-flying Droitwich will be hoping to reach the final of the Worcestershire FA Saturday Junior Cup tomorrow (Saturday) when they take on Worcester Raiders at home (2.30pm kick-off).

In a match which has been dubbed ‘the biggest of the season’ so far, Spa could not go into Saturday’s clash in better shape after a memorable display which saw them climb to the top of Midland League Division Two.

Droitwich’s players put their name in the history books, with Nick Seabourne leading the way with an incredible six goals in what was a one-sided onslaught from the home side.

But Oliver told the Standard his players must not get carried away by the win.

“It was a great team performance and to be honest I think a big win from us had been coming,” he said.

“Every time we attacked we just seemed to hit the back of the net.

“The players were delighted after the full-time whistle but they would have celebrated a 1-0 win in exactly the same way.

“But we have to build on this now and take that form and confidence into the cup game on Saturday.”

Oliver said tomorrow’s match is set to be a cracker and wants the people of Droitwich to come in their droves to back his team.

It is a repeat of last year’s final which Droitwich won dramatically in extra time.

Worcester Raiders are currently eighth in West Midlands (Regional) Division One and go into the game on the back of an impressive 5-1 league win at home to St Martins.

“It’s a repeat of last year’s final so it is bound to be a really good game of football,” said Oliver.

“I’m hoping that a big crowd will turn up and support the lads as it would be really nice to get into a cup final. But I’m not expecting another 10-1 win.”

Droitwich booked their place in the Junior Cup semi-final with a hard-fought 2-1 win away at Welland earlier this month. The other semi-final, taking place at the same time, sees Montpellier against Bewdley Town Reserves.
