Birmingham Whites completed a comfortable victory over Hartshill Old Boys 5-0 yesterday.

Birmingham were hampered with an early injury to Pete Giddings but neat interplay between Clive Macey, John Sparkes, and Tony Fisher throughout the game bamboozled the Old Boys defence with Clive scoring a hat trick and John and Tony adding the other strikes.

Martin Barber marshalled the defence well, keeping their dangerous striker quiet who was on loan from the other Hartshill team, with Les Dawson in goal dealing well with shots from a distance. Roger Purchase kept the team ticking over and ensured a disciplined performance.

Following the early injury to Pete, Steve White was forced into an on-field role on return from injury and survived without any major drama. The unbeaten league leaders Coleshill were beaten by Boldmere 3-1, and the League continues to open up.

The next game is the National Cup match v Forest Vets on Sunday 17th April with a 12.30 kick-off at Solihull.
