Malvern Town are hoping it’ll be a Good Friday to remember when they conclude their Hellenic League Premier league season at home to Brimscombe and Thrupp later this morning.

Due to the popular #GroundHop weekend, games across non-league are being staggered so supporters can hop from game to game, hence why Malvern’s game is at the rather unusual time of 11.15AM today.

This has been Malvern's first season back at Step 5 for over a decade and if they win today, they can secure third place, which would represent their joint best finish since 2006.

And with the Smedley Crooke Memorial Cup final on the horizon with Pershore Town, this morning’s clash also acts as a chance for players to stake a claim to be in the starting 11 as Malvern go in search of silverware to cap off what has been an impressive campaign.

Having been second at one point before Christmas, a big dip in form saw them drop out of the promotion race but a rally through February and March has seen them win eight of their last nine league games and now a win today would secure a top three spot.

"I am happy with where we’re at in what is our first season at this level,” admitted manager Lee Hooper.

"Obviously it’s a little disappointing that we’re just off being able to challenge for second place, but overall there is a lot for us to be positive about.

"The League table doesn’t lie over the course of the season and it’s nice to see us in the top four of what is an extremely competitive division.

"We can reflect on games where we dropped points, but that’s football.

"The fans have also been brilliant and really played their part; we are so lucky to have this kind of backing both home and away.

"Hopefully they can see that things are moving in the right direction here and together we can take things forward."
