Week 2 -Report
The second week of the BDFL saw 61 goals fly in from 10 games and Rubery Athletico in Division 1 have literally gone goal mad in the first two weeks.
They bagged an astonishing 15 today and Mitchell Mansfield has clearly assembled a very very strong squad for this season and they showed no mercy to today’s opposition.
Quinton Athletic have also started well and Jordan Murphy’s hat-trick was the highlight of a 7-0 victory over Catshill with Anton Gardner-Bennett also bagging a brace.
At this point in Division 1, it is worth acknowledging that we seem to have stumbled upon a (completely unintended and unexpected) gulf in class between the top 3 teams in the division and the bottom 3 teams.
Further information will follow tomorrow on this matter to affected parties.
In Division 2, Arrow Valley and Hizza United both maintained their 100% starts with wins over AFC Blackwell and Chaddesley Corbett respectively.
Harry Nicholls has started well for Hizza, he has bagged five goals already this season with a brace today in the 3-1 win.
Arrow Valley’s Dave Evans was at the double in their 4-0 match win and we await the Arrow Valley v Hizza derby with baited breathe.
Bromsgrove Partisan are in the process of a change of manager with Ryan Khan taking over and 8-2 win over Real Norton who seem to have defensive difficulties at present was the perfect way to begin.
Rubery Memorial are up and running with their first win of the season as well, a 4-1 win over Cofton Old Boys.
In Division 3, Bvilly Block, Frankley United and Redditch Borough seem set for a good battle in the title race if early results are anything to go by.
Bvilly beat Stoke Prior 5-0 whilst Frankley had a close 2-1 away win at FC Redditch. Redditch Borough have gone under the radar a bit but a 4-0 over Crusaders looks comfortable enough on paper.
South West Alliance and Red Star Bromsgrove played out a 2-2 draw in the other game.
