Storming start

Lichfield’s second team has made a great start to the season winning all four of its matches and topping the Birmingham Division 2 table,

It was touch and go whether Lichfield could run a competitive B team because of the limited availability of several players, but in rapid succession the team beat Mutual Circle, Boldmere, Halesowen and Solihull. Next up was a challenging away game against South Birmingham which Lichfield lost convincingly.

Things will get tougher in the New Year when captain Mike Maher and Charles van der Westhuizen will be absent.
