We actually managed to get some matches played last week but it’s not looking so good for this week with only 2 matches currently remaining, both being League Cup games. Already through to the next round are St Mary’s, Connect Sports and Living Hope Church. Connect Sports look the real deal as they continued to average 6 goals per match with a mean defence to boot. So my hunch of a Cup shock by Christ Church Coseley did not pan out. I thought I had played it safe tipping Division 2 leaders St Thomas’ Aldridge to overcome Living Hope Church United, but alas, I was wrong yet again as Living Hope won 2-1. It looks like St Mary’s had a steady win over Amblecote Nomads, no reports but a 4-0 scoreline would suggest as much.
One game was played in Division Two with Dudley Lions overcoming Brierley Hill A.O.G 3-0 for their 2nd Divisional match win pushing them into mid table.
Whist we did manage to get some games last week, I am not all hopeful that we will this week. As stated above, only 2 scheduled matches remain and my main thought would be that if any match is played how badly will it cut up the pitch for future weeks. The rain we have had so far this month and especially this week is proving somewhat problematic regarding scheduling and rescheduling matches. (I told the new Fixtures Secretary it would be an easy role once he had sorted everything at the start of the season. Like my predictions, that looks to be something I got wrong as well but keep up the good work Ben).
Division One plays Division Two in both matches of the League Cup with Chawn Hill Church hosting Dudley Lions and St andrews Netherton travelling to face Delph Athletic. I am playing it safe this week predicting both Division One teams to progress.
Thanks to Stephen Richardson from City Church for being this weeks Prediction Challenger. (Due to the lack of matches I will be asking Stephen to do this again for next weeks games). Current update is that the Prediction Challenge is level at 37 points each.
