Last night saw the first quarter-final game in the David Bloor Memorial Trophy as Crestwood all but booked their place in the last four. Needing six goals to make it nine-hundred in their history, they did it in style by putting a quarter of a century past their opponents.
We will need confirmation in due course from Mr Statto, Dan Spear, but we think not only is that a record score but that Rhys Harper’s thirteen individual goals is also a new benchmark. Iain Gillett scored seven and Kyle Carter weighed in with a hat-trick.

Following a dip in form and a few bad results, Brandhall are back, and they proved that last night with a convincing win over Tipton in the league. The victory means that they have now won nineteen times in twenty-three against their opponents. With just two defeats, that’s an impressive record.
Dave Wall scored five, with recent signing Luke Douglas finding the net four times. Tipton’s solitary reply means that they reached 750 league goals in their history.

Lions are definitely wobbling at the moment, and United took advantage of that as they raised their game to battle back to share the points. The top of the table now looks very interesting; could this be Crestwood’s season? It certainly makes for an exciting run-in, that’s for sure. And look at Brandhall, with their next game against Lions don’t write them off either!
