The Cradley Tuesday Night League have completed their domestic fixtures and although there is still one outstanding result from the game between Brickmakers Arms and Netherton Sports and Social ‘A’ the outcome of that game will not affect the table at all. So with 27 wins from 32 games Crown ‘A’ completed their season with a 6-3 win at White Horse to win the title by two points from Brickmakers and even if Brickmakers won 9-0 against Netherton it would see them level on points with Crown ‘A’ but still way behind on average.
Most wins went to Jason Lowe (Crown ‘A’) who won 28 of the 31 he played. Five was the most 180’s achieved by both J.Sharratt (Crown’B’) and D.Redding (Gate Hangs Well).

Week six in the Shirley Red Lion Premier League and leading the way on 41 points from 15 games is Paul Higgins whose latest games saw him beat bottom of the table Stuart Dixon 3-0 and by the same margin account for middle of the table Chris John. Second in the table Simon Edwards fell behind Higgins as he lost both of his games first against third placed Pete Silver and then against Chris Devlin 3-2 to leave him with one less point than Higgins but having played one game more. Pete Silver’s win together with a further 3-1 win over Alex Hesketh gives him a total of 39 points one less than Edwards but like Edwards he has played 16 games as opposed to the 15 played by Higgins.
Fourth placed Steve Sidwell is three points behind leader Higgins but has only played 14 games and a win would see him join Higgins at the top of the table.

After nine games in the Netherton Thursday Night League just one point of average separates the top two teams, an 8-1 win by Rose and Crown over The Crown puts them top, White Swan who won 6-3 at White Horse are second. Bulls Head are third, they suffered their first defeat of the campaign a 6-3 reversal at home to fourth in the table Dudley Ex Serviceman’s Club, however Bulls Head do have a game in hand on the two teams above them and a win would put all three teams level on 24 points.

Otter and Vixen were the only losers in the top seven teams in division one of the Wolverhampton Tuesday Night League, all six teams above them winning so there is no change with Wednesfield FC still leading with 48 points and ECC second two points behind them.
Whitmore Reans WMC hold on to their two points lead in division two after winning 6-1 at Pendulum, Roebuck handed out a 7-0 whitewash to their visitors Wednesfield Legion ‘C’ and take over in second place from Pheasant who had a bye. Both Roebuck and Pheasant have a game in hand on Whitmore but both of them trail massively on average and a win for Roebuck despite taking them level on points with Whitmore would still leave them in second place.

There were two factors leading to Riley’s ‘A’ extending their lead at the top of the Tettenhall Wednesday Night League to six points, their own 5-2 win over Woodfield Social and their nearest rivals Otter and Vixen losing by the same scoreline at Claregate. The win, and with only one fixture remaining means Riley’s ‘A’ have won the title and Otter and Vixen despite the defeat will finish runners up as third placed Riley’s ‘B’ are a further four points adrift.
