St. Boniface

Honours: Division Two Winners 1998

Potted History: St Boniface first entered the league back in 1996 when we used to have too few teams in the league for two divisions but too many for one. Everyone played each other once and then the league split in two. St B’s competed well during this period, reaching a Cup semi-final and winning Division Two. Results and performances waned and they dropped out of Division One in 2001 but were back a year later despite finishing fifth in Division Two in 2002. But it only lasted a year. They endured a difficult year in 03/04 and scored only five points. This was followed by the wooden spoon in 04/05, when WMCFL was in the dolldrums with only 16 clubs in the League.

St Boniface’s fortunes fared better in the following three seasons but ended all three years towards the bottom of the league. However, 2008/9 was a vast improvement. Once again St B’s got to the semi-final of the Cup and were promoted back into Division One, finishing a narrow second to Wolves and Perton. They were also only out-scored by St Mary’s who played two more games and Champions Church, run-away winners of Division Three.

Sadly, 2009/10 was the Bee’s last. There were some highlights not least of which was beating Clarendon, who eventually won the league. Perhaps this was an indication of their potential. Jimmy Cutler was Division One’s top scorer with 23 goals. They also got through to the quarter finals of the League Cup only to be knocked out by Selly Oak.
