9th November – ONE MINUTES SILENCE

Remembrance Weekend.

Before we move onto football issues, everyone is reminded that it is Remembrance Weekend and therefore there will be a One Minutes Silence before every match.

**************************************************************************

Only 1 match survived the weather a couple of weeks ago with Clarendon beating League Leaders Saint Michael by 3 goals to 2 moving them back into the top half of the table.

No matches last week as it was decided to postpone them as it clashed with England playing in the Rugby World Cup Final. This was classed as a major sporting event and whether you like rugby or not it was decided that considering all factors it was the correct thing to do.

Onto this week and we have already lost 2 matches to the weather with Rowheath being waterlogged. So City Church vs Corinthians S.K in Division One and Selly Oak Methodist vs Clarendon in the League Cup will need to be rescheduled. This leaves 4 matches with one in Division 2 and 3 League Cup games. My mindset is that I expect all of the matches to fall foul of the weather but hopefully that will also be a forecast I get wrong !

Brierley Hill A.O.G host Dudley Lions and whilst both teams struggle to score I reckon the weather will have an effect on that in this game and go for at least 7 goals in this game with Dudley taking the 3 points.

The League Cup sees St Mary’s travel to face Amblecote Nomads and I only see one winner here with St Mary’s continuing their unbeaten run.

Another unbeaten side, Connect Sports travel to 2nd Division Christ Church Coseley and having netted 30 times in their 5 games so far will fancy their chances of progressing at Christ Churches expense. I can’t really believe I am typing this, but it’s the Cup, so it’s a shock win for me for the home side.

Living Hope Church United host Division 2 leaders, St Thomas’ Aldridge and again, like the previous forecast, I just wonder if the weather will be a leveller. After due consideration and a cup of tea, I have gone with the sensible side of my head and tip St Thomas to progress.

I have asked Andy from Charlemont Star to be this weeks Prediction Challenger again as there was only 1 match played when he did it a couple of weeks ago. (If we lose all the matches again this weekend I think I will hold him back to the end of March before asking again), hahaha.
