Bartley Green surge to glory; FESTIVAL.

BARTLEY Green have become champions of the Festival League after a fabulous finish to the season.

The Green grabbed the title thanks to a 4-1 win over Lodge Cottrell.

Both sides were level pegging at half-time before the Green got on top with goals from Gittins, Farrell, Lewis and Richards. Robinson had earlier brought Lodge back on level terms. The result means Lodge are now condemned to finishing next to bottom.

Audley Rangers have to settle for second place despite pulling off a 1-0 win over long-time title contenders Punchbowl, who finished third. Dunckley's solitary second-half strike separated the sides.

Mackadown Sports managed to lift themselves clear of the Premnier Division relegation zone with a 4-2 win over Travellers.

Two goals from George plus further strikes from Grady and Glynn did the trick after Gall and Dunn had netted for Travellers.

Wernley completed a successful turnaround to the season with successive wins over Stockland Star Holly Lane, the latest a 5-2 victory which takes Wernley up to sixth spot. It's a far cry from Christmas, when they were bottom of the table.

Celtic Lions finally clinched runners-up spot behind Old Oscott in Combination One.

A first-half goal from Jones was enough to give them a 1-0 win over Grove, pipping Birmingham Deaf and Biocare Athletic to promotion in the process.

Festival Two champions Small Heath Alliance lost for only the second time this season when beaten 4-3 by CFS Holdens.

Lyndon Urchins claimed third place thanks to a 2-0 win over Land Rover Social.
