Pershore have been given the incentive of a home tie in this season’s RFU Senior Vase Midlands final but Bridgnorth face an away tie in the regional final of the RFU Intermediate Cup.
Pershore are a round behind in the Senior Cup, a delay caused by the postponement of their home tie against Yardley & District in November because of traffic problems which prevented their Birmingham visitors reaching Worcestershire.
Having beaten Luton-based Stockwood Park in their Midlands quarter-final last week, Pershore will now host West Bridgford in the regional semi-final on February 22.
The winners of that tie will then entertain either Stewarts & Lloyds from Corby or Newcastle from Staffordshire in the Midlands final on March 15.
Bridgnorth beat Leighton Buzzard in their Midlands semi-final of the RFU Intermediate Cup last week but will have to wait to discover who they will face in the final.
The other semi-final between Newbold on Avon and Leek was postponed and will now be played on February 22. The winners will host Bridgnorth in the regional final on March 15.
The Midlands winners of the RFU Cup competitions will progress to the national semi-finals.
