Important battles for high-flying sides

THERE was plenty of table-topping action in the BRT Redditch & South Warwickshire Combination League on Sunday.

In Division One a dramatic 88th minute equaliser from Nathan Davies salvaged a deserved 1-1 draw for CBH Fasteners after Alex Kelly had put hosts Redditch Cricket Club in front.

The new leaders by a point from both RCC and CBH Fasteners are Thomas Brothers following their 5-3 home win over JMC United, although with two games in hand the advantage in the title race remains with RCC.

Division Two leaders Washford Lions took the lead through Dean Hay against second placed Millfield Rovers but Sean Chance's header earned a 1-1 draw for the hosts.

Second placed Woodrow gained a quickfire revenge over Division Three leaders and hosts Bell Studley with a 2-1 win, whilst Sporting Club Redditch and Dagnell End Rovers both moved up the table with 4-0 and 5-0 victories over Peter Simpson XI and Washford Lions Reserves respectively.
