The table-toppers proved too strong last Friday as they went home from south Shropshire with an 11-3 victory.

Now Burway face another tough task in the Salop Leisure Shropshire Premier League with a trip to second-placed Sir John Bayley.

“We weren’t expecting to get beat so comprehensively but we did, so it places extra importance on this game,” said Rogers, who will again stand in as captain if Chris Dovey is not back from holiday in time. “Castlefields wanted it more than we did.

“We have a small squad and it’s a big step up for the people coming in from the reverse teams. But we’re doing OK and hopefully last week was a blip.

“We want to finish top half and up until last week we were going quite well.

Burway pulled off the result of the season in the reverse fixture with a 14-0 thumping of the defending champions.

“As long as they don’t reverse that we’ll be happy!” added Rogers.

“It will be a different game at their place but hopefully we can get three or four winners to get back on track.”
