Berriew go for first Mont Cup win

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend


The 2010 Montgomeryshire Cup saga is finally set to come to an end Sunday when Berriew start as slight favourites to lift the Cup for the first time in their history.
A host of problems caused last season’s tournament to be carried over and the weather has brought more delays. But it is now set to be played with Berriew locking horns with old enemies Montgomery at Newtown’s Latham Park.
The build-up has been further hit by the rule that only players eligible for last season can play; a decision that has hit Montgomery the hardest, handing the slight edge to Neil Pryce’s Berriew.
“We're quite fortunate that the majority of last year’s Mont Cup team is still with the club so getting a team wasn’t really a problem for me,” he said: “We’ve been waiting eight months so can’t wait to play.”
Pryce’s preparations have been hit by the flu with several players, including Pryce (right), suffering over the last week. And despite his side flying high in the Spar Mid Wales Division One, he is a good friend of Montgomery boss Clive McNamee and will show plenty his opponents of respect.
“Monty were close to winning it 18 months ago so they will want to go one step further this time. We know they will certainly be up for it and will be tough opponents. We hope we can rediscover our November form and bring home the club’s first ever Montgomeryshire Cup success.”
Clive McNamee, meanwhile, is keeping his cards close to his chest and expects to reveal some team news later on tonight (Saturday).
