The George will look to extend their lead at the top of the table as they entertain West Brom FSC in Gameweek 7 of the Summit Garage Staffordshire Premier Bowls League. West Brom though need the points at the bottom of the league. The Greville are 11 behind and need an improvement on last week’s home result to keep up with the leaders as they entertain Dudley Dell. The Dell though have had a much better start than last season but did just get 2 at Willenhall Nordley last week. Nordley will look for a similar result against another Staffordshire rival in M&B Cheslyn Hay. M&B captain Aaron Tapper knows it is a “tough trip to our neighbours but we know what to expect from this fixture. Always a good battle between the clubs, we’ll be looking to come away with a positive result.” Moor Lane have impressed so far this season and play St Georges who are a place below them. Moor Lane skipper Jack Whitehead says “we are looking forward to a tough battle, hoping to keep our good form moving forward.” Castlefields are another who have had a good start and sit 3rd, and will look for a good win against bottom of the table Moseley CC, who will be encouraged by their 3 winners at the Greville last week.
Stretton Anglesey only scored one last week at Ward End Cons and skipper Paul Chamberlain is “hoping we do better than our last away game” as they travel to Great Barr. The green is a very different one and the home side will hope to take advantage of that. King George V had a home scare last week but know Woodfield won’t know so much about their green like Tanworth In Arden did. The Woodies though have had a very good start to the season so far. Tanworth will look for another similar result to their 3 last week as they travel to Netherseal. The home side have had an average start so far, winning 24 and losing 24 games. Penn are bottom and know they are in need of winners at the Royal Oak. The Oak haven’t really got going yet and know a good home win is needed to do so. Ward End Cons will look to build on that super home win last week as they travel to Windmill. The Mill are still being good at home, and will need to continue that if they are to stay in the promotion hunt.
Heath Hayes are back in action after not being able to field a team in their last game at Broomfield. Captain Steve Wright is back though, and is “looking forward to getting back in action after the byes and bank holidays. None of us have seen the green before but that’s one of the reasons we joined the league to play new greens and hopefully bring our game on.” Baldwin had a close win last week over Willenhall Nordley, but hope that they will have a bigger one this week. Baddesley are top and will look for a good away result at Broomfield to stay there. But Broomfield have had a good start to their home season last week and would like a similar result. Willenhall Nordley are in second and may fancy their chances of finally getting an away win after several near misses as they go to Short Heath Lbs. Short Heath though have been good at home so far and sit in 3rd. Langley and Sutton Park sit in mid table and both teams know some good results will move them up right into the promotion mix. Wrockwardine Wood have the bye.
