Confident Fairfield Villa prepared for quarter-final clash against Feckenham

Craig Gibbons 7th Mar, 2018 Updated: 7th Mar, 2018

FAIRFIELD Villa play host to Feckenham this weekend in the quarter-finals of the Evesham Hospital Junior Cup hoping to keep up their chances of having three pieces of silverware to play for at the end of the season.

The Recreation Ground side have already booked their place in the final of the Worcestershire FA Saturday Junior Cup on May 12 when they will play county and fellow Midland League Division Two rivals Droitwich Spa.

And on April 7 they will take on Midland League Division Three outfit Boldmere Sports & Social in the semi-finals of the Les James Challenge Cup knowing victory will lead to gracing the turf at Walsall’s Banks’s Stadium in the final.

With the chance of having an end-of-season to remember, Fairfield take on Feckenham on Saturday looking to secure their spot in the last four of the EHJC to bolster their chances of fighting for three cups come May.

The Millers beat Wayne Davis’ Fairfield 3-2 in the league back in December and vice-chairman Paul Oakes told the Standard the club were looking forward to avenging that defeat.

“It’s quite funny really as I left at half-time when we were 2-0 down because we were so poor,” he said.

“But I missed a great second-half comeback and we went on conceded late on because we were not content with the draw.

“Feckenham are a good young side who like to play football so I expect a good game against them.

“Confidence in the camp is high right now so hopefully we can avenge the defeat.”

Only James Finn (away) is missing which leaves manager Davis with some selection headaches.
