Four games were scheduled to take place on Wednesday but
Chasetown’s game with Kidderminster Harriers was called off. So, three fixtures
went ahead in Division I and it included the shock result.
Mansfield Town’s unbeaten run has ended after defeat away to
Boldmere St Michaels. Mansfield lost 2-1 to third placed Boldmere who are now 4
points off the League leaders so there is every chance that Mansfield will be
Boldmere scored through
Forward Rio Blake Hands and Defender Sam Light. Manager Nick Heath credits
Goalkeeper Reiss Wagstaff for a Man of the Match performance and this is what
kept Boldmere holding on for a famous victory.
The result will shake up the Division with teams knowing that
Mansfield aren’t invincible and that this Division will come right down to the
wire and Boldmere are one of the strong contenders to win this Division.
Another side that is hot on the heels of Mansfield in Romulus
who were in action against Tamworth. Romulus came away the victors 3-2 with
goals from Kieran Donnelly, Niall Brennan, and Daniel Bowes. Romulus will now
be full of confidence going ahead knowing there is a huge chance that they can
win this Division. Tamworth remain in fifth and are three points off fourth.
Stratford Town were also in action against Stourbridge and it
was the home side who won convincingly 4-1. Stratford sit in fourth place but
will face a huge task if they are to get into the top three this season as they
are currently five points off third. Stourbridge are in seventh place and will
look to climb into fifth by the end of the season.
There will be only two fixtures next week due to half term
but the big game on Wednesday will be Boldmere against Romulus. A win for
Romulus will take them above Mansfield whilst a win for Boldmere puts them one
point off first. Whilst in the other game Stratford will look to close the gap
on third as they travel to Chasetown who are winless so far this season.
