Harwich and Dovercourt look to get back to winning ways

First published in Local Sport

HARWICH and Dovercourt Rugby Club are hoping to claim a scalp on Saturday.

The Wick Lane side have an Eastern Counties League division one date at home to second-placed Ipswich YM.

It will be their first match for a fortnight, after the disappointment of losing at Crusaders.

And skipper Sean Mills wants his side to get back to winning ways against one of the more fancied teams in the division.

“We’re really looking forward to it,” he said.

“It’s a big game and they’re always tight contests against Ipswich YM.

“Thankfully, we’ve tended to come out on top in recent years and hopefully that trend will continue tomorrow.

“They’re second in the table and looking strong, but it’s not like they’ve left us standing. They’re only six points better off, so things could change very quickly if we beat them tomorrow.

“We’re certainly not fazed by playing them and it’s a good opportunity to put a marker down, especially in front of our own supporters.”
