Powell praises Chalford after Reg Davis Cup triumph


Chalford boss Ben Powell heaped praise on his side after they came from behind to retain the Reg Davis Cup.

Powell’s side defeated Cheltenham Civil Service 4-3 at Lydney Town’s Recreation Ground on Wednesday night.

Powell’s injury-hit side found themselves 2-1 and 3-2 down before a remarkable turnaround.

Powell beamed: “To come from behind three times shows everything about them. I can’t thank the traveling support enough and I’m hugely proud of everyone connected with the club.”

Earlier, Cheltenham Civil Service took the lead through Connor Hart, who notched a second after Chalford had brought the tie level.

Former Shortwood United striker Paul Holmes grabbed Civil Service’s third after Chalford had netted parity.

Freddie Wilson, Luke Barstow, and a brace for Ryan Harry saw a plucky Chalford edge a pulsating final.
