Coseley based Blades FC extended their unbeaten Beacon Sunday League record to seven games with a convincing victory away to basement outfit Gunmakers Arms this week.

Three-goal Harry Woodbine led the latest charge for free scoring Blades, well supported by Declan Fellows (two), Jack Hill, Taylor Brooks and Todd Ferrier. Blades are two points down on leaders Claregate having played the same games.

In the Paycare Development Division, Brandhall Colts took advantage of leaders Sedgley Rangers' fixture against Sedgley White Lions West being abandoned (due to injury) to take over top spot.

Brandhall ran out 4-1 home winners over AFC Goldthorne to go a point clear with their ninth league win. The victors have now played two more games than Rangers. Karl Armstrong kept up his excellent goal scoring record this term with another treble, with Tom Bradley grabbing a fourth, while Wayne Marsh responded for Goldthorne.

Gornal Rangers came from 2-1 down, with ten minutes remaining, to edge home by the odd goal in five against AFC Sporting Gornal to keep up their chase on the leading two. Ty Markland, Rhys Webb and Liam Cullen were on the mark for Gornal, with Jay Crumpton and Luke Chapman replying.

There was a sixth league success for AFC Wombourne as they ran out 4-1 victors at Kewford Eagles West, thanks to the trio of Alex Lowe (two), Owen Massey and Tom Hartlebury, the sole consolation coming from Matt Finley.

In the remaining Paycare fixture this week, Sporting Black Country climbed two places into the top seven after emerging worthy 7-2 winners at AFC Willenhall.

The league's flagship NDT MIdlands Lester Charity Cup produced a major upset this week as second tier basement outfit Bushbury Hill, without a single win this season, progressed to the last 16 at the expense of mid-table Sedgley & Gornal United East.

In a thrilling 2-2 encounter, Bushbury took the spoils 5-4 on penalties, the tie having been decided at the sudden death stage.

It was three wins in four for unbeaten Mini-Pro Golf Parks Eastern leaders Down Syndrome Awareness Veterans as they emerged narrow 4-3 winners over Bilston Old Boys Veterans in this over-30s clash.

Netting a brace for DSA, who trailed early on, was Ty Atkinson as the pacesetters moved four points clear at the head of the pack.

In the Advanced Recruit (Western) over 30s section, there was a second league success in three for AFC Bilbrook Veterans as they ran out 3-1 home victors over MNF All Starz. All three Bilbrook goals came from the in-form Ed Cooke.
