Football: ADAMS IN RICH VEIN OF FORM; MIDLAND COMBINATION.

LEAMINGTON extended their mighty lead after despatching closest rivals Bloxwich Town 4-0 at the New Windmill, Richard Adams netting twice. Adams cut in to open the scoring midway through the opening spell and he duly doubled with a similar effort before the interval.

Josh Blake gave the Brakes a 3-0 lead in the second period, while Nicholls grabbed one himself from a set piece ten minutes before the whistle.

And with Steve Smith marshalling the Leamington back four, Brakes keeper Richard Morris was rarely tested.

Alveston picked up three points at the other end of the table after beating West Midland Police 3-1 at Tally Ho! to leave the Police firmly rooted to the bottom.

Daniel Jarrart headed the Police into a 42nd-minute lead, but Jake Sammons levelled shortly after the interval and Barry Shearsby then stretched Alveston's lead.

Russell Harvey's vehement protests at Alveston's second goal brought a red card to leave the Police down to ten men when a deep cross saw the Police keeper palm Alveston's third into his own net. Dudley Sports were 3-0 winners at Pilkington XXX where Steve Hyde opened for the visitors.

Craig Gregg followed up the keeper's parry to tap in Dudley's second after half time and Ian Hughes rounded off the scoring with a solo third. Brocton bounced back from a two-goal deficit to salvage a point from visitors Meir in a 2-2 Staffordshire derby.

Craig Redgate and Matt Borthwick put KA into their two-goal lead, but Nick Wellcomme sparked the recovery with 16 minutes to go and Andy Harrison equalised in a late goal mount scramble for Brocton.

Highgate United won 2-1 at Continental Star thanks to goals from Myrone Levi and Marcus Ricketts.

Italik Powell converted a late penalty for Star who saw a late 'leveller' disallowed for offside.

Castle Vale took all three points in a 1-0 win at Nuneaton Griff where Mike Frasier hooked in the decisive strike from Sam Hawker's 24thminute cross.

Barnt Green Spartak at Bolehall and Feckenham's clash at Coleshill were called off ,along with Sphinx's match at Southam and Shifnal's visit to Coventry Marconi.
