A much reduced fixture list for Week 13 after a flood of open date requests all related to Villa v Blues in the lunchtime second city derby and with another couple of teams unable to field sides, we were left with 18 games which is about our normal number, however with the County Cup weekend on its main conference date, the number of games was exaggerated due to most playing teams in other leagues. 

Starting in the WFA Premier Cup, one all BDFL tie saw a super game between Meadow Park and Black Horse which went the way of Black by a 6-3 scoreline. Six individual scorers for them namely, Dale Edwards, Sean Brain, Joe Adams, Matthew Chambers, Brad Birch and Shay Palmer. Black safely into Round 3 along with last week's winners Northfield Athletic but Belbroughton won't be joining them after they were agonizingly knocked out by Callow End from the Worcester League on penalties after the sides were deadlocked at 1-1 after 90 minutes. If truth be told, Callow dominated the match from start to finish and despite being down to 10 men after a red card for a rash challenge, it didn't stop their possession stats. However against the run of play, Ricky Cowdell put Belbroughton ahead in the 35th minute a lead they held onto until the 90th minute when Belbroughton right back Jay Paraside handled on the line and was sent off; With the resultant penalty converted, the game went to a shoot out which Belbroughton lost 4-3. 

In the Junior Cup, six ties involving BDFL sides and the only two to exit were Wychbold RBL who crashed out at home 3-2 to AFC Claines whilst Hizza found life tough against the best Evesham League side going Bretferton Old Boys (losing 3-1). Perhaps one of the best positive results was Awkies Allstars 5-3 win over Wyre Forest from the Kidderminster League. Wyre Forest are known to be a tough side to play against and this proved no different today so for Awkies to win through is an excellent achievement; Awkies raced into a 2-0 lead through Mike Wakeman and Jase Gibbons before Forest hit back with a brace of their own. Callum Parker of Wyre Forest was then sent off for a late challenge on the Awkies keeper. This didn't stop Forest as they took the lead before master tactician Chris Fox changed the Awkies system and this was the catalyst for them to score three late goals through Matt Adams, Ashleigh Tullett and an own goal. FC Highgate United also scored five in their match at Hornets FC (a 5-2 win) with Red Lion 4-2 winners at Evesham League side Cider Mill thanks mainly to a brace from Pete Jenvey although Anthony Mcnally and Dan Bearcroft also netted. Strangest incident of the day by a long mile came in the Chaddesley Corbett v Colwall St James match where returning Chaddesley keeper Chris Crook managed to get himself sent off by match referee Darren Amor BEFORE the game began after becoming embroiled in a disagreement over sock tape in the pre-match checks!; Fortunately for Chadds, this didn't disrupt them too much (Richard Ash a competent keeper donning the gloves instead) and they ran out comfortable 8-2 winners; Recent signing veteran Mark Bellingham, a very successful lower non-league striker over the years, netted four times with Dan Weston grabbing two, Ben Corcoran one and a rare goal for 'Groovers' Paul Lofthouse.

Nearly an excellent day in the Minor Cup too, only Cofton Old Boys losing and this being on penalties, with three more teams winning into the next phases. Stoke Works put in a great shift at home to Pebworth winning 7-0; The legendary Paul Halfpenny nabbed a hat-trick to continue his recent good form and braces for Ryan Cooper and either Curtis or Lee Smith doing the same as well. Chaddesley Corbett Reserves visit to Spennells United was on everybody's radar due to the close friendship of Spennells manager Lee Kane and Chaddesley manager Mark Donaldson but luckily for us, Donny has the bragging rights tonight after a 3-0 away win thanks to an Anthony Ward brace and one for Sam Shearer. Meadow Park Youth are in good nick right now and they saw off Grovesnor Sports from the Worcester League 3-0; Colin Rudge's first half header put Youth ahead before George Brighton nearly got a second but he hit the bar. Will Symonds got their second on 65 minutes before Oli Rainsford missed a penalty to put the game beyond doubt. Brighton made up for his earlier misfortune by grabbing the final goal in the last minute, clincally finishing off Oliver Garrington's pass. 

In the Worcester Nursing Minor Cup Round 1 game, replayed from 4 weeks ago after an abandonment due to an injury, it was job done for Studley Lions who won 3-1 against VBL Sports in what has been described as a 'horrible' game. Not too sure why but we can only assume it was an ugly scrappy win, a win that however sets them up with a trip to Arrow next week in Round 2. Studley's goals came courtesy of Nick Briggs, Habib Buaben and Jamie Walsh. 

In domestic action, Millfield Rovers put nine past Thomas Brothers in another disappointing match for the reigning Premier Division champions. Not sure what the player situation was today for Brothers but David Cummings showed he still has what it takes to score at the highest level banging in a hat-trick, ably supported by Danny Hiles and Jimmy Ward (two goals each), plus one for Neil Dews and Nathan Mclaughlin. Pilkington Sunday from the Premier Division are safely into the quarter-finals of the WA Harris Cup as they beat Division 3 high flyers Arrow Valley securing a 3-0 home win thanks to goals from Callum McCall, Grant Jones and Oliver Smith. Valley had their chances though, Garry Harvey being the chief culprit without the shooting boots on! 

In Divsion 1, the bottom two sides FC Hop Pole and Quinton Athletic both chalked up their first league point of the season as they played out a 2-2 draw (FC Hop Pole's goals coming from Keelan Mcnally) whilst in Division 2, Winyates and Hewell both had to be content with a point each from their 3-3 draw, Ivan Karov (2) and Steve Knight on his debut the men with the Winyates goals.

In Division 3, we weren't too sure what to expect from Stoke Prior v Laburnum with both sides not firing but nobody could really expect an away demolition job as Laburnum went goal crazy winning 9-0! Ryan Sproston, a very capable striker, seems to be back in the Laburnum squad and his six goals paved the way for victory. Adam Reeves, Adam Billingham and Chris Hancock with the others. Stoke's lack of goals coming back to haunt them yet again but the defence has gone leaky too - Plenty for Abi Maycroft to ponder at this week's board meeting. 

Back to a more normal fixture list for the start of November's action next Sunday; A range of cup, league and Worcester Nursing Cup games so something for everyone. We like the look of Wychbold RBL v Awkies Allstars in the WA Harris Cup, Chaddesley Corbett v Black Horse in the BRS Shield and Perrywood v Pilkington Sunday in the Nursing Cup.
