The latest results for the Sheldon and District Winter League provided a shock for premier division reigning champions Saltley Amateur Gardeners as they lost 6-3 to current leaders Crown at Shard End.

Yardley Ex Colts dropped from second to fourth in division one after a 5-4 defeat away to Baldwin Bears, who move up one place to second. Baldwin, Holy Souls and Ex Colts are all two points adrift of leaders Banbury Club, who still boast a 100% win record.

Back in June I wrote about a charity night at Riley’s, Castle Vale in aid of Vinnie Whitehead, who requires sensory lighting as he suffers from Menkes Disease. Vinnie has no funding whatsoever and the cash raised from that evening all went towards his cause.

This coming Friday another evening is planned to raise further money for Vinnie’s cause at St John’s Club, Smiths Wood at around 7.00 to 8.00pm. This is a no ticket event however there will be a donation box with a minimum £2 donation for entry. There will also be loom bands on sale, various raffles including a signed Wayne Rooney boot.

Steve Whatmore will be looking for donations as he will be having his blue hair cut off by Sue Kingdon, plus in addition to this the winners from the June competition will be taking on the professionals.

Why not turn up and support a very worthy cause.
