MARTIN Lloyd says his Swindon College Old Boys team will be more than ready for Marlborough this weekend, despite the weather conditions.

The Swindon side will welcome the Southern Counties’ high-flyers this weekend and Lloyd claims his troops will be well prepared for the game.

The last time the two teams met was back in November, where Marlborough claimed a 37-22 win over Lloyd’s team.

However, the Old Boys chief believes his side have plenty more to offer as the season draws to a close.

“Hopefully the game is on but with the way the weather is at the moment, you just have no way of knowing,” he said.

“The guys are feeling good about it. In the past few weeks we have let ourselves down and that is the feeling within the club.

“We haven’t reached or played to our potential and training has been a bit off with people working away and things like that.

“We had a really positive session on Wednesday everyone was there bar a couple, so we are really looking forward to it.

“We are competitive, we want to challenge them all over the park and we know they are strong but we are looking forward to getting into them.

“If the weather isn’t up to scratch we will take them on anywhere. As long as we do ourselves justice.” Going into the game, Lloyd has been handed a double fitness boost, with Nick Tuckett and Rory O’Brian.

“There are a few people taking knocks but we have a few coming back. Nick Tuckett is coming back and he is hugely influential,” he added. “There were one or who we were worried about, but they passed late fitness tests so we are content with how we are at the moment.” In the South West One East division, Royal Wootton Bassett and Swindon are both in action over the weekend.

Bassett will travel to Banbury, while Swindon will hope to keep up their recent surge with a win over Stratford Upon Avon.

Elsewhere, Dorset & Wilts One North side Supermarine will aim for back-to-back victories as they take on Combe Down away on Saturday afternoon.
