Shewell: Droitwich will give Kenilworth the respect they deserve

Craig Gibbons 8th Mar, 2018 Updated: 8th Mar, 2018

DROITWICH skipper James Shewell knows victory at Kenilworth this weekend will go a long way to closing in on promotion from Midlands Two West (South).

The Salt Boys, who currently top the table after 16 games, are 25 points clear of third-placed Kenilworth going into Saturday’s clash at Glasshouse Lane.

Despite Droitwich’s strong position, Shewell knows nothing can be taken for granted against a side they comfortably beat 41-0 at the Glyn Mitchell Memorial Ground back in November.

“It was quite a shock to beat them so easily and I think Kenilworth will reflect on that day as a complete under performance,” he said.

“Kenilworth are a big club who have played at higher levels so we will certainly give them some respect.

“They will be wounded from what we did to them previously but they will be doing everything to try and put that right.”

Droitwich’s home game against Evesham, which was postponed last Saturday because of the snow, could be played on Saturday, March 31 but Shewell revealed the club were looking at options to play it on a Friday evening.
