Last night’s top game, as expected, was a close affair as old rivals Allstar Lions went head-to-head with Brandhall & Quinton FC. Having beaten them already in the group stage of the DBMT, they have now completed the double, thanks to a brace from Dan Lodge.
It’s only their seventh win in twenty-three attempts at beating the Lions, so they will certainly be savouring the moment. And well done to Matt McCardle who made his 100th appearance for Brandhall.

In the other DBMT game, Tipton Family Church FC went to the head of Group A as they beat Church On The Rock FC 7-2. With the half-time lead just 2-1 there was plenty to play for in the second half, but it was Tipton who ran out winners to make it five wins out of five against their rivals.

In the only league game of the evening, Crestwood Town FC continued their current run of top form by moving to joint top of the table. Beating United FC, they also had the main marksman this week as Rhys Harper found the net four times.
