In their Red League game Firefighter’s goalkeeper Luke Smith made some good early saves but was unable to prevent visitors Whitley from taking the lead. The Firefighters battled their way back into the game with a fine move starting with Lewis Robinson who found Myles Halford unmarked whose attempt at goal was blocked, Ryan Howe then found space in the box to smash the rebound into the net for the equaliser. Man of the Match Jack Hill and Jamie Conner were solid at the back for Firefighters, with Warwick Hancox impressing again in midfield and Aaron Whitehead and Jamie Cox also contributing to a competitive game. After plenty of chances were scorned by both teams Whitley’s Robert Scott finally sealed victory for the away side.
Pro Santos continued their fine run of form by winning their fourth game on the bounce. Taking early control of the match with 2 fine strikes from Callum Burns, Jack Bayliss added a third before Callum calmly completing his hat-trick to take his team into half-time with a 4-0 lead. Coundon Cockerels forced their way back into the game in the second half. The pressure paid off when Pro Santos conceded an own goal with 5 mins to play. Only another excellent display from Ashley Millward in the Pro Santos goal prevented Coundon Cockerels from getting further back into the match. On Saturday Cup holder’s Mount Nod moved into the quarter final of this year’s Tamworth Cup with a 2- 0 win over Cov Jag Red. A Jordan Downswell penalty and a great individual goal by Man of the Match Samuel Blasdale secured the game. Nod continued their winning ways on Sunday when Man of the Match Corey Cook helped them edge out AT7 in a 3 -2 thriller.

Dunlop and Cov Jag served up an early feast for their followers with a fantastic game. Right from the first kick of the ball the match was played at a fast tempo and superb play from both teams. Great interplay between Jags Man of the Match Callum Maguire and James McArthur resulted in the first goal of the game. Dunlop’s defence and their keeper in particular were in top form to keep Jag’s adding to their score Dunlop had some great chances at scoring but Jag’s keeper Frazer McGuinness made some fine saves to keep them at bay. After half time Dunlop scored two goals to take the lead The Jag piled on the pressure but just could not bury their chances until Callum Maguire finally hit an unstoppable shot to take the final score to 2 - 2. Full credit goes to all of the players for providing great entertainment. Well done lads!!!
Another Saturday game saw AT7 Red progress into the next round of the Tamworth Cup after a victory over their own Blue team. The ‘Blues’ started strongly but failed to finish their chances and at the interval found themselves 1 -0 in arrears. In the second half the ‘Reds’ stepped up a gear only to be denied and Hayden Keen’s well timed challenges . Eventually a Ricky Fletcher tidy header and Immanuel Hays second goal sealed the game for the Reds but both teams deserve credit for giving it their all in an entertaining clash. AT7 Red then continued their winning ways on Sunday when they achieved a victory over a dogged and skillful Ernesford Dynamos. Connell Farrell, the AT7 captain and driving force, fired home two unstoppable shots just before and after the break to set up the win.
After a good start from Cov Sphinx, Chapelfields scored after a sweeping move which Lewis Normoyle finished with a low shot past the rushing keeper. In a close game Chaps increased their lead with Tom Curzon scoring before half time. The second half was a close encounter with both defences playing well. Curtis Cutts finished the scoring to make it a well deserved 3-0 win to the Colts.

In the under 12's cup Chapelfields Colts (Red) progressed at the expense of (B) Div promotion challengers Brinklow Juniors. For the second week running Colts Man of the Match was James McGookin. M. Wilby, the Brinklow goalkeeper, had a great game bringing off some excellent saves. In the League Christ the King’s Scott Drakeford and James Mills bagged a hat-trick and five goals respectively to cap an impressive team display as the Kings proved too strong for Rugby 2002. An early save by Dunlop’s stand in keeper Kyle Hickman kept Finham at bay before Dunlop took control with two first half goals. Luke Ellis snapped up his second after the break before Tom Rawlings finally beat Hickman to make it 3-1. Finham's joy was short lived however as Stephen O'Sullivan immediately poached a fourth for Dunlop to secure the points.

Just before half time Ryona scored their fourth and Kieran McMurray’s second to send them into the interval with a very well deserved 4-1 lead.

In a cracking game Whitley Juniors punished an in-form Massey Ferguson with some superb finishing. A great hat-trick in ten minutes from Jamie Hnatushka was accompanied by 2 goals from Dani Loney and a tremendous header from Jake Ward. A very hard fought and exciting game saw the Boat and Ernesford Dynamos share eight goals. Both teams tried everything to get the winner but in the end a draw was a fair result.

Ernesford Dynamos got back
to winning ways in a competitive and hard fought game against Mount Nod. A goal
in the first half by Chris Russell and a superb left footed strike in the second
by Aaron Kelly gave the points to Dynamos. Two very sporting teams provided
great entertainment and thrills throughout, with special mention for a great
performance from the Highway keeper.
Finham Park Colts and Coundon Cockerels served up a ten goal thriller in the B Division. Colts opened the scoring when James Marklew was played through by midfielder Danny Brown to confidently place the ball round the Cockerels keeper after 10 minutes. The visitors responded immediately with a well worked equaliser levelling the scores. Finham found their lead restored when Adam Pickup delivered a dangerous corner which Coundon failed to deal with and James Marklew was on hand to scramble in his second goal of the encounter. With both teams looking to capitalise, Matt Holme was introduced from the bench and was quickly rewarded with his first goal when he received a long kick from goal keeper Lewis Reynolds and slotted the ball home from just inside the area, making it 3-1. With halftime looming, James Marklew received the ball some distance from the Coundon goal and hit a net buster from outside the box make the score 4-1 at the break and complete his own hat-trick. The second half started positively for Coundon when the Finham defence failed to clear the ball and Coundon poached a goal to make it 4-2. With both teams looking to score, Matt Holme took his second goal of the match on the volley to extend the Finham lead back to 3 goals and a few minutes later he had also completed his hat trick. However Coundon kept good shape and began working more chances in the last fifteen minutes. Their attacking approach rewarded them with 2 late goals but time was now against them and Finham rallied together to hold on for a very close 6-4 victory.

Hillmorton stormed their way into the next round of the cup after a fiery encounter with Morris Rangers. Rangers had the better of the early spells but an excellent through ball from Richard Smith allowed the cross to come in for an easy tap in for Jo Kerruish. Hillmorton increased the lead when Sean Huntley was on hand to knock in a loose ball. The second half saw the game’s tempo and competitiveness increase with Hillmorton running out the eventual winners and the Man of the Match award going to Sean Huntley. A mid-table clash between Corner Post Colts and Chapelfield Colts saw both teams playing fast competitive football from the start. Both defences were under extreme pressure as the game went from end to end. Some really good last minute tackles kept the first half scoreless with Phil Whitehead holding the Corner Post defence together and John Phipkin outstanding for Chapelfields. The second half started at the same pace but Chapelfields finally broke the deadlock after a goalmouth frenzy led to Will Edwards putting the ball in the net. Corner Post raised their game and quickly replied with a goal from Sandeep Jassal. Continuous pressure from Corner Post resulted in 2 further goals from Scot Broadbent. Chapelfields rallied during the last 15 minutes and were rewarded with a goal from Joe Rowe-Martin but the equalizer proved elusive and a thrilling game finished at 3 – 2.
