Squad – Ian Gough, Manager, Dave Castle, Assistant Manager, Dave Wright, Rob Corp, Kev Mann, Kev Evans, Andy Struthers, Keith Laishley, Shay Flaherty. We had a good all round team performance, with a close game for the 1st 15 mins with both teams having chances until Dave Wright pounced to make it 1-0. He quickly followed that up with another goal to see us into the break 2-0 up. Second half we were on top from the start, Dave Wright added another 2 including a magnificent volley from just outside the box before a fine Andy ‘Golden Boot’ Struthers strike made it 5. Rob Corp in goal made a couple of stunning saves to ensure he got a well deserved clean sheet! Excellent disciplined performance all round. Well done lads!

BWFC over 60s V Hartshill away 22/5/16

Our over 60’S team had a disappointing ending to the game against Hartshill. After a spirited fight back, in a very tight first half, the teams came off at 0-0, with our lads coming close to opening the scoring from Gordon Davies. Shortly after the break Hartshill scored a breakaway goal that left keeper Keith Phipps no chance. Keith Laishley’s brace then put our vets ahead with a brace of goals with his trusty left foot. In the last minute a disastrous mistake led to an easy tap in for the Hartshill forward. Penalties ensued and this ended in a two nil victory for our opponents. All of the players did Birmingham proud.  Keith made some marvelous saves and special mention to Barry Huntingdon, who played every minute in a commanding performance at the back.
