The visit to Walsall is always popular and on a beautiful summer's morn with the course as pretty as a picture hopes were pretty high. Unfortunately the Saddlers proved a bit too strong and a 4 -2 loss resulted. Captain Brian and David Nicholas achieved a half, as did Terry Smith and John Suthons. Olton's winners were the ex Olton Hockey Club combination of John Martin and Derek Birt. More matches this week in possibly sweltering conditions. Robin Hood at home on Tuesday and away at Coventry Hearsall on Friday.
