CINDERFORD could end their otherwise mediocre season on a high with a win against Wharfedale at home tomorrow (2.30pm).

The Dockham Road faithful have been treated to thrillers on home soil, while the Foresters have suffered away from home.

Despite last week’s 52-17 defeat to Rosslyn Park in London, Cinderford secured National One safety as relegation rivals Henley Hawks could only draw 14-14 with Tynedale.

Win tomorrow and Cinderford could leap from 13th to 11th in the table, overtaking Loughborough Students and Tynedale.

It is a massive weekend for Cinderford as their United and Stags teams are in action in the Forest of Dean Combination Cup finals.

United will play Drybrook for the Senior Cup on Sunday at Dockham Road (3pm) while the Stags play Bream in the Junior Cup tomorrow (3pm) at Bream RFC.

Tonight, Drybrook IIIs play Ross IIs for the Minor Cup at Westbury-on-Severn (7pm).

The three North Gloucestershire Combinations finals will be played on May 11 at Kingsholm.

n Gloucester Old Boys will play a testimonial veterans game against a North Gloucester Combination side on Sunday at Horton Road (2.30pm).

Gloucester Old Boys have organised the game in honour of Stan Turner, who has been a member of the club for 45 years.

Turner has held many club positions, including first team, second team and third team captain, fixtures secretary, treasurer, vice-chairman, groundsman and even barman.
