Thornbury And Avonmouth Set For Combination Final
Charles Saunders Combination Cup Final takes place on Monday
Avonmouth and Thornbury go head to head in the Charles Saunders Combination Cup Final at the Memorial Stadium on Monday, 14 May (7.30pm KO).
Avonmouth will be looking to capture the trophy for the eighth time, while Thornbury will make their first ever cup final appearance.
During the South West One league meetings between the two sides, Avonmouth have come out on top twice – beating Thornbury 22-5 at Rockhampton Road before a recent 36-22 home win.
Avonmouth – coached by Bristol duo Mark Irish and Sean Marsden - overcame Dings in the semi-finals, while Thornbury – who include Bristol favourites Rob Higgitt and Gareth Llewellyn among their ranks - pulled off the biggest shock in cup history when they beat Clifton 8-3 at Cribbs Causeway to progress to the final.
