Birmingham’s over 50’s went to the top of the county FA league as Darren Bradley went goal crazy, the former defender turned goal poacher scored 6 in an 8-0 victory over the hapless Shard End, further goals from Simon Dyer and Dave Norton completed the rout as keeper Les Dawson barely touched the ball all game.


In their second fixture another comprehensive 6-0 win over Stratford, with a brace from Bradley, singles from Simon Dyer, Andy Struthers, David Castle and a superb goal direct from a corner from Dave Norton. Once again Shay Flaherty ensured keeper Les Dawson had very little to do.


Assistant Manager Ian Gough  commented “I thought the performance and the attitude of the lads was superb, the new system worked really well, once we play better opposition it will be the true yardstick of how successful it will be, We are learning so much about each other’s capabilities in these games, which can only help us when it comes to the bigger National Competitions, the only thing missing at this club is a major National trophy, we need to stay focused and I’m sure its achievable “
