Vesty positive ahead of the Aviva A League Final

Sam Vesty has been enjoying playing his part in the return of the feel-good factor at Sixways this season and the Worcester Warriors academy transition manager is hoping the fans can continue repaying the favour for Monday’s Aviva A League Final.

After last season’s relegation, Worcester’s top-flight involvement this campaign has focused on the Aviva A League with the Cavaliers, and Monday saw them book a place in the Aviva A League Final thanks to a 37-26 victory over Bath United at Sixways.
 
They will be at home again for Monday’s showpiece as Saracens Storm come to town, the London outfit seeing off Newcastle Falcons 46-35 in their semi-final showdown.
 
Vesty is urging the Worcester faithful to once again come out in their numbers as the Cavaliers bid to bag some early silverware this season.
 
“It is brilliant to be at home for the A League Final,” he said. “The crowd for the semi-final was fantastic and hopefully we can have more of the same on Monday.
 
“We were in some really tight spots in the semi-final against Bath but the crowd really lifted the boys, they were really loud and vocal and helped us to get out of those tight spots.
 
“The players all mentioned how great the supporters were to a man after the game and how well they got behind the team.
 
“So thanks to all the fans for their support and I am sure we will get more of the same for the final which will be a huge boost.
 
“Winning games is massively uplifting no matter what competition you play in, and we are obviously happy to have mirrored the first-team in that respect this season.
 
“It has added to the positive environment that we have around the place and hopefully we can give everyone something to really celebrate come Monday night.”
 
Despite having home advantage for Monday’s final, Vesty is not about to get ahead of himself with Saracens Storm also unbeaten in this season’s competition.

However the 33-year-old insists he knows what to expect and will ensure his troops are ready for the challenge.
 
“Saracens are a very good side and no matter what team they put out you know it is going to be strong,” Vesty added.
 
“Perhaps people say they have a simple game plan but it is one they are very good at and utilise so well.
 
“So we just have to make sure we step up. We know what is coming our way and we just need to get our heads on and make sure we are ready for it.”
 
The Aviva A League Final between Worcester Cavaliers and Saracens Storm will be at Sixways, Worcester at 7.30pm on Monday, 12 January. A free ticket can be reserved on 01905 459309, at the Warriors Box Office or via www.warriors.co.uk/tickets. Supporters are asked to make a voluntary donation of £2 on the gate, which will go to the Worcester Community Foundation.
