Eagles on guard for 2nd Leg

Eastbourne Forman IT Eagles have named a full team for tomorrow’s (October 20) Play Offs semi-final second leg against Coventry.

They ran up a 30-point lead on Wednesday and now head to the Midlands with hopes high of making the final, where they would meet Mildenhall.

Team manager Connor Dugard has cautioned his team that the semi-final is only at the half-way stage.

“People were saying we had thrown it away last week in the KO Cup Final first leg but we proved that these things are never over until they are over.

“That’s a lesson for us all. We will be on our guard because we expect Coventry to throw everything at us in the opening heats to try and get back into the tie.

“We may have to weather a storm but, as always, we aim to win.”

Eastbourne: Georgie Wood, Jason Edwards, Mark Baseby, Ethan Spiller, Tom Brennan, Charley Powell, Charlie Brooks.

Next action at Arlington is on Sunday, October 21, 7.30pm start when the opponents will be Mildenhall, either in the outstanding NL fixture or the Play Offs final, if Eastbourne overcome Coventry on Saturday.
