Barlows Fire & Security Alan Mayhew Trophy Finalist: Meole Brace

Meole Brace have reached their third successive final, the only team that has done that before is their opponents Castlefields. They won it in 2016 but were hammered last year, so will hope to repeat that 2016 success against the same team they face in this year’s final. Their form this season has been up and down, winning 3 matches away is a great achievement but their home form has struggled at times. They can still produce a great performance when needed and they will rely on their Senior players to produce the goods and lead the way for the younger and more inexperienced players in the team. They are missing three key players unfortunately, but hopefully those who have come in will rise to the occasion.
