B Team v Shirley and other matters

Oh well, that didn't last long.

Despite bringing in new players Colin Macmillan and Steve Fox for their first games of the season, the B Team winning streak has stalled at just one victory following defeat away to Shirley yesterday, 1st June.

Bruce Wilson and Colin Macmillan won 1/0

Neal Lucas and Ian Sparkes won 2/1

Three pairings all lost 5/4 : Dorian Bowkett and Harry Kenth, Mick Miller and Steve Fox, Bob Harris and David Newman.

Dick Birkin and Mike Symons also lost 2/1.


Dick will be leading the team again on 15th June away to Fulford Heath before I resume  leadership against the Old Sils on 22 June.

The sign up sheets are on the board for the next three matches against Handsworth, 29 June at home, Maxstoke away 7 July, and Ladbrook at home 13 July so please continue your much appreciated support. Coventry were completely taken aback at the strength of support for our B Team - against Shirley away I had enough names to have put two teams plus reserves out - so my thanks for that.

Harborne have already asked that we make next year two fixtures, home and away, so we're doing well !!
