SOLIHULL skipper Richard Gamlin is confident of adding a handful of new faces to his squad for the club's first crack at Midlands Four rugby.

The North Midlands champs crowned another tremendous season by beating the odds a fifth time to lift the North Midlands Shield on Sunday.

The Portway tenants have been faced with higher division opposition in every one of their five ties this season.

But Gamlin's troops were unfazed by Old Yards' physical approach and won a hard-fought encounter 13-7 at Stourbridge Rugby Club, the first Shield win in the club's brief history.

Solihull have secured three successive league titles since reforming and Gamlin says there is no reason they can't make it four in a row.

Solihull, who came from behind to win at the weekend, will lock horns again with arch rivals Worcester Wanderers again next season after their rivals followed them into Midlands West Four after finishing runners-up in Powergen North Midlands One.
