Scrum-half Stuart Doust is in line to make history for Bredon Star by becoming the first player from the club to win Worcestershire & Herefordshire senior honours.

Doust has been named in the Worcestershire & Herefordshire squad for the opening match in this season’s Iskitz Three Counties Championship opener against Greater Birmingham at Birmingham Exiles’ Elmdon ground on April 19 (7.30pm) and will become the first player from the club to wear the plum and apple coloured shirt if he makes his county bow.

Worcestershire & Herefordshire will be seeking to deny Shropshire a fourth successive title in the competition which involved the three Dometstic Unions which comprise the North Midlands RFU.

Shropshire completed a hat-trick of wins by beating W&H 24-13 in last season’s final.

Shropshire launch their campaign against Worcestershire & Herefordshire at Kidderminster Carolians on April 26 and will then host Greater Birmingham at Shrewsbury on May 3.

The final, between the top two teams in the group, will be played at Newport on May 14.

The Iskitz Three Counties Championship provides a high standard of representative rugby to players from outside of the National Leagues and gives them the opportunity for push for higher representative honours with North Midlands.

Backs: Stuart Doust (Bredon Star), Adam Dixon  (Malvern), Oli Rayner (Old Halesonians), Ollie Meadows (Worcester Wanderers), Andy Holloway (Old Halesonians), Joe Oxford  (Old Halesonians), Sam Davenport  (Bromsgrove), Chris Pinner (Kidderminster Carolians), Mike Diston (Evesham), Sam Hopkins (Evesham).
