ALAN Brown remains on course to end his reign at Hartlepool Rovers with silverware.

After four seasons in charge at the Friarage, Brown’s contract is not being renewed.

But the veteran forward has guided Rovers to the final of the Durham Intermediate Cup after coming off the bench in last night’s 24-15 semi win over Stockton.

Rovers, who scored tries through young wingers Adam Smith and Jack Gunn, will now meet Consett at a date and venue to be confirmed.

“If we can end the season with some silverware to go with a place in the top half of the league then I’ll be more than happy,” he told SportMail.

“Winning last night against a good team was great.

“But we’ve only done half a job.

“It’s only half-time as far as I’m concerned.

“We’ve got a full second half to come against Consett, so let’s see if we can get that elusive silverware back to the Friarage.

“This season has been about integrating young players into the side for the benefit of this club.

“And it would be great if we can round off a lot of hard work with a bit of glory.”

Rovers though will be anxiously awaiting news on injured duo, Tyrone Church and Andrew Dring, who ended up in hospital with a gashed head and leg respectively.
