Organisers of this year’s Balsall Common Festival have announced plans for an Open Evening at the Berkswell & District Royal British Legion on Wednesday 29th July 2015. The event will showcase opportunities for volunteers and sponsors.
A star-studded Berkswell side containing two former internationals went clear at the top of the Premier Division of the world-famous Birmingham & District League at Meeting House Lane yesterday, despite their game being abandoned due to rain, thanks to bonus points earned whilst dominating their top of the table clash against visitors West Bromwich.
Berkswell now stand alone at the head of a league that boasts the best club sides from across Warwickshire, The West Midlands, Worcestershire, Staffordshire and Shropshire.
Berkswell’s official scorer Trevor Jordan reports on yesterday’s abandoned game:
Birmingham and District Premier League – Premier Division
Berkswell 80-0 (9 points) v West Bromwich Dartmouth 117 all out (5 points) – (Match abandoned)
