The race for the Premier Division Title was blown wide open as Second place Austin Ex Apprentices dealt out a first league defeat to leaders OKH Sporting Dynamo. Josh Westwood gave Austin a third minute lead, before a penalty on 20 minutes levelled the scores. Goal machine Andy Nicol put the hosts back in front on 65 minutes, who went further ahead minutes later when Ben Judd headed home Mike McGrath’s cross. A second Nicol strike on 75 minutes sealed the win despite a second penalty for the league leaders completing the scoring on the stroke of full-time. Jo Jo Durose scored a hat trick for Rubery Bridge, who beat Lodge Park RA 4-0, whilst Dan Gaffney got both South Redditch goals in their 2-1 victory over CBH Fasteners

Black Horse beat Thomas Brothers 4-1 in the WFA Premier Cup , Brendan Hicks scoring twice, whilst former Black Horse goal scoring legend Stuart Hall netting for the Bromsgrove League side.

In the Junior Cup, the result of the round for the Redditch league teams was due to an excellent team performance by Division One Leaders Red Lion, who defeated Kidderminster League side Station Inn 4-1. Daniel Bearcroft again leading the way with two goals. Studley Railway pulled off an equally impressive 5- 2 mauling of The Bear. Roland Rignall and  Jamie Walsh each scoring twice. Redditch Town almost came away with win , but suffered penalty kick heartbreak away to Badsey Recreation. 

In the Bromsgrove Charity Cup, Millfield Rovers had a bad day at the office as Studley Entaco gained revenge for last week’s league defeat with a 7-1 victory, as Aaron Brough bought last season’s goal scoring form to the table with a hat trick.

Winyates Wanderers kept up their 100% Division One record, beating basement side AFC Lions 9-0, Luke Bryan with a hat trick, whilst Beoley Village won their mid table battle against redolence Park 3-2. Stuart Byng and Adam Crombie scored two first half goals each as New Woodland Cottage took a 4-0 half time lead against Redditch Cross. Despite a resurgent second half performance from The Cross, NWC remained in control of the game. Adam Crombie pounced on a loose ball to complete his hat trick and Dominic Elroy weaved past two players to complete the scoring with ten minutes remaining.
