Lichfield Social Community 5-1 Robert Peel
Lichfield and Walsall district league
Bypass ground, attendance 22, free admission

Straightforward win for the hosts this who led inside 90 seconds, and although they did concede a well-saved penalty a minute later, were comfortably able to see off ill disciplined opponents.

The exemplification of this being near the end of first half, when on already being 2-0 down, on protesting a bit too much, one of their players was fairly sin binned and refused to give his name, thus resulting in a red.

Both sides also scored one penalty each.

Bypass ground is just over a mile outside Lichfield and a pleasant enough park with a railed pitch to watch football in, lots of geese flying overhead for a lot of it and a kids game going on on the pitch behind the main one

Badsey Rangers 2-0 Shottery United
F&N, Att: 37 (H/C)


A pleasant village, and an enjoyable game on an evening that stayed sunny for the most part. The home team were the better side and deserved their win against a Shottery United team who appeared to only have their 11 players, no subs.
The first half was goalless, though both sides hit the woodwork. After the break, Badsey's number 19 scored both goals from close range - the first on 53 minutes when a set piece was only partially cleared and the striker reacted quickest when the ball was played back in. 5 minutes from time, the keeper fumbled a long range free kick, which should have been a routine save, and 19 pounced on the rebound for his, and Rangers', second.

Entertaining contest between two of the only three first teams in the division who are all challenging for promotion. The hosts, nicknamed the Spitfires, raced into an early two goal lead, both goals scored by Dan Bryce, the first a magnificent header. Visitors were back in the game midway through the half when their striker was on hand to pounce on a rebound after the keeper couldn't hold the initial shot. The visitors pulled level on the hour through a penalty and were denied a late winner when the referee disallowed a goal despite the linesman's flag staying down. Plenty of hoppers in attendance, watched in the company of Mad Mick.

Lovely little set up adjacent to the A303, although you won't see the ground if driving past as there is a wood in between. Pitch very small and not much room around the perimeter which made the club's own guidance that spectators should stay 5 metres back from the pitch difficult.

+1 at this and agree with summary. Spent in company of Spitfire Dave (+Sam the Greyhound) and Amesbury's Graham Ashman. IMHO was a fair decision to disallow from where I was stood. Will be back here

GNSL Reg Davis Cup Group C :
Taverners 4 Leonard Stanley 2.
Att 27(h/c).


Going into this, neither side had a point from 2 fixtures played.

This was a really good game of pretty decent quality. In the opening half Taverners dominated scoring twice but being pegged back in what were rare Leonard Stanley attacks. HT 2-2.

Taverners again dominated the 2nd half but despite creating chance after chance they were foiled by some fine keeping and their own profligacy. Goals did finally arrive after 74 and 90+3 minutes to seal a deserved win.

The ground is alongside and about a mile from Junction 13 of Motorway 5, but not visible from it as it stands significantly higher than the carriageway. Of course the rumble of traffic is constant. The turning into the ground is a bit of a bugger to find.

Taverners used to play in Nailsworth, next to the FGR stadium. Their pitch was realigned to allow FGR's new ground there. Now they are very close to where FGR wish to build the new EGOtricity Stadium

Contemplating on whether we still call this silly season since we haven't had a normal season!

Address on Full time site says Pershore Avenue but that's little more than a cul-de-sac so if you're driving there I'd head for Kitchener Road where there's ample street parking.

Pebble Mill Park has two pitches end-to-end with both in use this evening. Rubery normally play home games at nearby Selly Park but I'm guessing it was find an available pitch to get the games in.

A lively opening saw the "home" side 4-1 up within 17 minutes including a hat trick by their no.9. A penalty gave them a 5-1 lead at half time,

More even in the second half with a goal each.
