Contrasting days for Birmingham’s two representatives in the Birmingham County League Fixtures as The Whites and the Blues both started their campaign.

The Whites made a solid start with a hard fought 1-1 draw against Hartshill with Buttons late equaliser gaining a point, a 1-0 success followed with victory over Suttons Finest with Pod scoring the all important winner. A 0-0 draw against Wyndley and a 1-0 win against Bedworth with Pod once again on the score sheet meant that they remained unbeaten with 8 points from 4 games. Simon Dyer was delighted with the whole all-round team performance, “everyone did their job and chipped in, we’ve hardly ever played together before and acquitted ourselves really well”.

Conversely the Blues got off to a dreadful start as their 4 fixtures only reaped 3 points after 3 losses to Coleshill, Hartshill and Sutton’s Finest, their day improved slightly with a 1-0 win over Wyndley. Skipper David Castle said “I don’t think we have collectively played a group of games like that before, I know the size of the pitches were not conducive to crisp passing as they were so small for 7 a side, but it’s the same for everyone, we just didn’t adapt as we should have".
