West Midlands revival in the L-Style Division One of the UKDA National League continues as they added a convincing 29-7 home win over Somerset to their account with three of their four teams winning and the other finishing all square. Saturday’s ‘B’ games saw both the ladies and the men win as the former won 4-2 with wins from Jodie Rowlands, Debbie Davies, Tara Simmons-Fullwood and Gemma Barrett who for her 3-0 success over Natalie Wadham and her 19.27 average collected the team’s match award. The men’s ‘B’ won 10-2 and giving them that result were Mark Maiden, Ben Johnson, John Morris, Neil Pointon, Kieran O’Mahoney, Karl Hughes, Dean Simmons-Fullwood, Mark Craddock, Ian Stanton and Jack Aldridge. Man of the match was John Morris who beat Dave Russell 3-0 with a 26.84 average.

The ladies ‘A’ on Sunday were held to a 3-3 draw after opening up a 3-1 lead with wins from Katherine Jenkins, Jacqueline Maiden and Gemma Barrett, Jacqueline Maiden their top player with an 18.70 average and 3-2 win over Kate Hulme. The men’s ‘A’ had their win of the season handing out a 12-0 whitewash to their counterparts and giving them a clean sheet were Darren Williams, Jon Platt, Michael Baker, Ian Jones, Shaun Carroll, Ash Khayat, Owen Maiden, Rob Thompson, Scott Baker, Richard Platt, Kevin Bambrick and Ryan O’Connor. From the twelve winners Richard Platt topped the averages with a superb 31.81, that plus his 4-0 result against Chris Turner earned the match award.

Despite the huge win West Midlands remain fourth in the division, they have reduced the arrears on leaders Derbyshire from thirty-one points to twenty-four but trail second placed Suffolk by twelve and with just one more fixture to play promotion for this season looks to be just a pipedream, however they now have something to build on for their next campaign.

The league staged their doubles knockout at Sheldon Marlborough Cricket Club and taking the honours in a final which ended with a close 3-2 result were Neil Parsonage and Paul Webster representing Cotterills Lane EBAHA Club, the runners-up being James Hinkley and Stu Ollerenshaw (Tyseley WMC), the losing semi-finalists were Mark O'Donnell and Mick Looby (Clumsy Swan) plus Karl Neal and Leigh Dell (Tyseley Bears).

Nomad Flights held on to their two points lead at the top of division one of the Four Oaks and District League with a 6-3 victory at Old Oscott Arrows who lose their number two spot to Old Horns Lions and drop to third place now four points off the top while Old Horns Lions convincing 8-1 home win over Highcroft Social puts them within two points of the Nomads.

Oscott Social Club have been ousted from their number one perch in division two after a somewhat surprising 5-4 home defeat by middle of the table team Deer’s Leap.

Week sixteen results in the premier division of the Sheldon and District Winter League had no effect on the top five teams whatsoever as leaders Sheldon Marlborough Arrows won their home tie with third placed Dunky’s Boys 5-4 to make it thirteen wins in as many games with just one more to complete the season. Sheldon have a huge eight points lead over second in the division Langley Arrows who had a bye this week and now have two to play.

A 6-3 home win over Yardley Ex Colts keeps Langley Flights top of division one with twenty points and one more game to play, however The Dingle’s 5-4 home win over Hornet keeps their faint title hopes alive as they, despite being two points behind Langley have two games to play, a win however would see Langley Flights over the line as they have a big average lead on Dingle.

With Trident Spears suffering a surprising 6-3 away defat at Lyndon Old Boys in division two Brain’s Flights have replaced them and returned to pole position following their conclusive 9-0 win over Raven. The battle for the title of division two is still wide open as any one of the top three teams could win it as they are all on 20 points but have played a different amount of games Brian’s Flights have played 13, Trident Spears 14 and Iron Horse Rebels 12.

Game eighteen in the Netherton Thursday Night League may not have produced any changes in the league table but there were a couple of surprising results, the first of which was the 5-4 defeat of league leaders Dudley Ex Serviceman’s Club ‘A’ in their away game against fifth in the table Townsend Social Club while Dudley Ex Serviceman’s Club ‘B’ chalked up only their second win in 18 when they won 5-4 at home against bottom of the table Netherton Sports and Social Club ‘B’.
