Pool miss out in Cup final

13/05/2024 @ 06:37


Welshpool Rugby Club can hold their heads up high following a season that saw them come agonisingly close to a tremendous double.

The side came within a whisker of gaining promotion to Division One North, settling for third, but travelled to Colwyn Bay on Sunday with a large army of support hoping to finish with some silverware.

But it wasn’t to be, despite winning all of their League Cup group matches to reach the final, Welshpool faced a Colwyn Bay side who made the most of home advantage.

The hosts raced into a 21-0 half time lead, and despite a stronger second half showing with a spirited fightback, Welshpool fell to a 38-26 defeat.
