Hereford Pegasus Reserves are hoping to be lifting the County Charity Bowl later this afternoon, but face a difficult task with opponents Clee Hill sure to provide tough opposition.

We’ve been catching up with Hereford Pegasus Reserves ahead of the game. Here’s what gaffer Billy Beaumont and captain JJ Spencer had to say when we caught up with them.

Question and Answers session with manager Billy Beaumont

YH: County Bowl Final Today. How have you prepared?

BB: Taken it a step at a time and game by game, it’s been a weird season with all the lockdown restrictions and we’ve worked hard to get where we are. We wanted nothing less than getting to this final. Preparation is key and working on things in training to get us ready for this game. Knowing we are going into the game as underdogs doesn’t worry me at all, I’m confident that we can get this result.

YH: What would it mean to Pegasus Reserves to win the final?

BB: Every game is important to me and Paul Howells, Howller has helped me out massive this season and brought the squad more together, but as everyone knows it doesn’t come often to get to a cup final. Not only to me but to the whole squad I know this game means a lot and the side will want to give all they’ve got. Walking away with that cup, nothing less!

YH: Are any of your players close to making the break into the Pegasus 1st team?

BB: During the last two years of running the side, we’ve brought players into the side which have advanced quickly and made the progress to the 1st team. I believe all of my side has the potential to be playing the standard and with more experience it will come.

YH: How much do you know about Clee Hill?

BB: I know that Clee Hill are a very good side, well drilled, driven and determined to get results. Their squad is very tight and you can see that when they play.

YH: Who has been your player of the season?

BB: This is a very hard one for me as all players have been consistent and I can’t put a name to it. If I was to narrow it down I would have to say one of our youngsters, only 17 years old and first step up to men’s football, for me it would be Will Powell.

Question and Answers session with captain JJ Spencer

YH: It’s the final today. How prepared are you and the team?

JJ: For me the team has prepared well over the last two weeks since beating Ludlow in the semi final. We’ve had two great team performances in the run up to the final with very intense training sessions to go along with that. In my opinion the gaffers have done everything they can to prepare the team, now it is down to us the players to perform on the day.

YH: You’ve had some big wins in the cup this season. Are you confident you can go on to lift the trophy?

JJ: We want to win tomorrow, we are a very young squad in this competition and we haven’t made it this far to walk away as runners up. We have the drive, hunger and quality to succeed, all the team need to do is prove that on the pitch and I have no doubt we will lift that trophy at the end of the day.

YH: Which teammate has the best banter?

JJ: Jake Tobin.

YH: Which teammate is the worst dressed?

JJ: Lewis Skyrme (because of his **** stains)

YH: Which teammate is the worst drinker?

JJ: Curtis Driscoll.

YH: What would it mean to you to win the cup for Pegasus Reserves?

JJ: To end the season with any type of silverware is a successful one. Winning with this group of players would be a great achievement, after the stop start season and the year we’ve had it would be an amazing way to cap off a challenging year.
