Whitworth Cup Final Countdown
Daz, thanks for talking to us, how are you feeling ahead of the match?
I’m really excited about it, we’re on a good run at the moment. I’m looking forward to the match, everyone is. The players are buoyant and can’t wait to get going.

The Club hasn’t won a trophy in a few years, is this an issue?
Well obviously we are playing at a very high standard, and you’ve got to beat some very good teams to win a trophy. This is no different, Knaresborough are of a high standard and it will be a tough game.

I understand we have a few players cup tied, how will that impact the team?
We’re losing [James] McDaid and [Jimmy] Tucknott for the match, both of whom are quality players. They are the engine of the team and will be a loss, but rules are rules. We’ve got some good players to replace them, and they will do a good job. It’s eleven against eleven at the end of the day.

We saw on Wednesday, and again today, there are some issues in front of goal. Do you think that will hurt us?
We have stuttered in front of goal recently, but we’ve only lost one of our last nine matches, and that one loss was against Pool when we did play badly. Overall, we’ve won games; our formation is not conducive to win big, we will never hammer anybody, but we can still get the wins.

Is the main aim in the Finals just to get a trophy? Will you be happy with one?
Of course, winning a trophy is more important than anything, we’ve been trophy-less for a number of seasons now. It’s going to take a major effort to win either, to beat either Knaresborough or Otley. Priority is not an issue, it’s about winning. We want to win both.
