8th February, 2019: Teamwork leads to two more victories - and a promotion!

The Birmingham League team won their first match of the season last night with a good victory against Shirley Wythall. The score was 3.5 - 2.5. They are now off the bottom of the table and have every chance of avoiding the drop from Division 1.
The 'Bs' also won with a resounding victory (3.5 - 0.5) against Walsall Kipping C in the WDCL. This completes the double. Better still, the team is now officially promoted to WDCL Division 2 next season. Will they also clinch the Division 3 title? That's all down to Halesowen, who have a game in hand and are just two points behind in second place.
