Veterans Division 1: Oxford A 10 Birmingham A 0

Oxford A (Andy Misseldine, Alan Cherry and Jeff Rigby) were far too strong for promoted Birmingham A, as they kicked off the new Midland League Veterans season with a whitewash. The match began with Alan Cherry prevailing in an excellent duel with Trevor Davies, which went the distance. Thereafter Rob Sheldon competed well for the visitors, taking a game against each of the Oxford players, but it had become rather a procession by the end.
