1st February, 2020: More mixed results!

The up-and-down fortunes of the club persist. However, and although it looks as if none of the teams will be relegated this season (well, not quite yet), there are signs of a thaw in the icy-cold results of at least one team.
The Birmingham League Division 3 team have racked up their third victory. After losing the first 3 matches, they now have a 50% record and look quite secure.
Other results have not been so great. But considering there are weaker teams that are favourites for relegation, there is no need to press the alarm button quite yet.
The only real danger at this team is the Cannock League team may finish bottom (or near to bottom) of Division 2. But this League is poorly supported and relegation issues are not of any concern. The Dudley League team has also only played 1 game this season. This was a win back in November. So the good news is they are still 100% successful!
As for trophy news, the club is scheduled to play a home game against Mercia in the Humphrey's Trophy Semi-Final on Wednesday, February 26th. *Chris Cox also has a Semi-Final game (again at home) to be played against Stephen Heath in the Bidgood Trophy competition (*correction to original news). There is not set date as yet for their game.
Next general report update will be on or around March 1st. However, results are updated (as per usual) as soon as they are received.
