Rose and Crown with one remaining outstanding fixture have won the Netherton Thursday Night League title, their 7-2 win at Pensnett Liberal Club gave them a total of 45 points from 17 games, their nearest rivals White Swan lost 6-3 at home to fourth placed Bulls Head to complete their programme and giving them 42 points. Although currently in second place the defeat could eventually cost White Swan the runners up spot as third placed Dudley Ex Serviceman’s Club are three points behind them but have one remaining fixture against champions Rose and Crown and fourth placed Bulls Head although six points adrift still have two games to play one against fifth in the table Fairfield and the other against next to bottom of the table Crown, should be quite a tense finish for the runners up position.

Full Results:- Dudley Ex Serviceman’s Club 5 Fairfield 4, White Swan 3 Bulls Head 6, Pensnett Liberal Club 2 Rose and Crown 7, The Bell 7 White Horse 2, The Widders 6 The Crown 3.


The Hilltop Friendly Tuesday Night League have got their new season underway and it began with something of a shock as reigning champions Old Hop Pole lost their opener 4-3 at home to Merry-Go-Round who finished in the bottom half of the table last season.

Belgrave Club were the sole losers in the top five teams in division one of the Pip Club League going down by a convincing 8-1 to Prince of Wales who now share the number one spot with Sports Bar ‘180’ who had a 7-2 win away to Two Gates Club.

In division two, Old Liberal without a win in their opening two fixtures provided the shock of the week by beating formerly undefeated in three games Progressive Club by a massive 12-6.

Gornal finished their first campaign in the league with 48 points from their 26 games to be crowned champions, but despite their impressive season they only won the title on average from Ashwood ‘A’ who had a closer 4-3 win over Ten Arches ‘B’ in their final game to give them the same 48 points but with an inferior average.

With only three fixtures remaining in the Wolverhampton Tuesday Night League the title for both of the two divisions is still to be decided.

Second placed ECC are just two points behind the leaders after handing their Railway hosts a 7-0 whitewash.

After a 5-2 defeat in their previous game at Prince of Wales ‘B’ in the Tamworth league Fox and Dogs were quick to bounce back as in their very next fixture they won 6-1 against Mile Oak Rovers, however the win still leaves them in second place behind Prince of Wales ‘A’ whose latest 7-0 win over Dolphin Inn puts them on 76 points seven more than second placed Fox and Dogs. Third placed Prince of Wales ‘B’ followed their win over Fox and Dogs with a 6-1 win at Globe Inn to give them 54 points but from only seven games, the two teams above them have played nine.
