ALAN WALTERS insists that confidence could not be higher at Slough ahead of the Bucks Bowl final away at rivals Drifters on Saturday, December 3 (2pm).

The Greenies go into the showpiece event having thrashed Tadley 57-25 last Saturday, their biggest win of the season to date.

“Confidence is the key and we have consecutive wins now,” said Walters, the assistant coach at Slough. “To win a final would set a precedent for us for the rest of the season.

“We will have lots of numbers at training in midweek because the mindset has changed. We need a rest but a fully fit squad has given me and the coaches a headache all of a sudden.

“We seem to have two players for the majority of positions and a number can play in more than one. The youngsters have taken over because they’ve been given the chance and taken it.”

He added: “Drifters won a double header with Chesham last Saturday but were beaten convincingly in the league the week before, so they’re a bit up and down at the minute.

“We lost to them in a typical early season game, where they are a lot of nerves, but we have a different mindset now and a bit more knowledge on them.

“We lost then but we have more belief and are more competitive now so hopefully we will come out with a win.

“We're not the favourites because home advantage is key and it's the biggest game between the two sides for a number of years."
