IT has been some turnaround at Pershore Town in the last couple of months and their win over Redditch United to reach the Worcestershire FA Senior Cup final tops off what has been an unbelievable start for new manager Danny Janes and his coaching staff.

Since being appointed in late November, Janes and his team have guided The Plums to 10 wins in 11 games across all competitions, a run which has put them back in the mix for the play-offs in the Hellenic League Division One.

But their cup journey really is putting the club back on the map and now they have a chance to win the Worcestershire Senior Cup competition for the first time in their history after yet another memorable evening for The Plums.

“It’s a great feeling,” said Janes at the full-time whistle.

“It’s more the performance and the way we held on at the end. Me and my team have only been here a couple of months but we’ve beaten Bromsgrove Sporting in the quarters and Redditch United in the semi finals.

“The character was top-class and we fully deserved the win.”

It was a backs to the walls job in the opening 20 minutes for the visitors as Redditch flew out the traps.

Daniel Sweeney rattled the bar with a header before the impressive Charlie Williams weaved his way into the Pershore box before striking the ball past Eddie Cox for the opening goal in the contest.

But a penalty awarded just 60 seconds later enabled Josh Willis to equalise before a superb second-half sealed their progression to the final.

“We knew we were going to suffer at some points but we said before the game we had to just suffer as a team,” added Janes.

“When we conceded the first I knew we could go again but an equaliser so quickly gave us a massive lift

“But I knew whoever scored first or however many goals went in we had the character to win, it was fantastic.”

Janes also did his homework on the Southern League outfit and says the game plan was executed perfectly.

“We didn’t just want to come and compete, we wanted to impose ourselves on Redditch,” he added.

“We watched them on Saturday and we knew they were a bit weak physically in the midfield so Sam Clark was unbelievable and so was Aidan (Clark)

“It was all planned how we played, performance wise we are very happy.

“But now we train Wednesday and play Saturday to try and stay in the play-offs.

“We always knew Pershore was a big club, we raised the standards and we brought a few in but we worked with the squad and we are working hard.

“That’s ten wins in eleven for us so we have to keep that going and pushing on for as many points.”
