In the final games before the Christmas break, Allstars 03 went into the festive period top of the league in style as they beat Tipton 18-2. Rhys Harper scored seven, Joe Colley found the net four times and Martyn Shepherd bagged himself a hat-trick.

The other game was much closer, although when West Midlands Village stormed into a 5-0 lead you’d have thought it was game over. However, a comeback from Gems FC saw the gap closed to just one goal. Agonisingly for the new boys though, that’s sadly how it ended.

Following the games, mince pies were handed out in the foyer to players on their way out. Allstars’ Peter Madge and Jason Perry enjoyed theirs as you can see from the lead photograph.
