CHAMPAGNE CELEBRATION FOR BADSEY UNITED

 

Badsey United became champions of the Stratford Alliance Aquaid Division on Saturday in a tense match against Feckenham Reserves. United had to avoid a 3-0 defeat which would have handed the title to Claverdon. So when 2-0 down at half-time, it looked desperate for the nervous looking Ballard's Park team. However, manager Martin Schembri rallied his players during the break and they played a lot better in the second half losing the match 2-1. The league cup was presented to them after the match by Barry Cooke, the league's chairman.

Next season United will play in the Stratford Alliance again, aiming to win the title for the third time in a row, then if funds are available, they will apply for membership of the Midland League Division Three the following season. 


CAN I HAVE MY BOOK BACK, PLEASE?

Aldington poet, Brian Smith, is asking anyone who bought his first book of poetry, "From Down Sands Lane to Cuckoo Bridge" if they would like to sell it back to him for the original purchase price of 5.
The poetry book, the first of two, sold out completely a couple of years ago. Since then Mr. Smith produced a second book of poetry, and it was the production of this second book, "From Packs Meadow to Pear Tree Corner", that led to a renewed interest in the first. 
So Brian is trying to buy back clean copies of the book to supply to waiting customers.
Due to high printing costs for small runs of books it would not be viable for Brian to print extra books. The proceeds from the profit obtained from both books was donated to Badsey School and Badsey Church.
