The Sheldon and District Summer League have completed their league programme apart from one remaining fixture between Langley Hall Sports and Social Arrows and Highwood PH Flights in division one, but no matter what the outcome of that game the final table will remain the same.

There was a similar gap between the top two teams in division two with Mackadown Social champions and Marston Green Tavern runners up.
The title race in division three was much closer with Solihull Moors winning the division with 16 points and Holy Souls with 15 losing out by the odd point. Division four was another clear cut win as Iron Horse won the title with 15 points and their nearest threat came from Willclare Sports and Social who were six points behind them.

A 6-1 win over Highwood KB in division one of the Forest of Arden Summer League has almost certainly given Journeys End the title although there is still one fixture to play. Second in the table Riley’s Red Arrows lost their home game with fourth placed Highwood ‘C’ 4-3 the result leaving them two points behind Journeys and if Journeys lost their final game 7-0 at Iron Horse and Red Arrows won 7-0 at Highwood KB they would even then only finish level on points and average.
The race for the division two title is going to be very close and could go to any one of three teams, Crown Arrows are currently top with 20 points and play at home against Chelmsley Town in the last game, second placed Sheldon Marlborough Flights have 18 points and a more superior average than Crown Arrows and will play at home against Greville Arms in their final game, third in the table Chelmsley Town are on the same 18 points as Sheldon Marlborough, should be a very interesting final week.
