The dog days of 2012 were not to be the start of a successful Cup run for Colebridge Eagles in The Brian Lloyd Cup.
Unfortunate with an away draw at recently promoted Streetly C , and despite a positive eight game advantage , the combined talents of Richard Parks , Mike Standen and Colin Oakes were enough to bring low The Eagles by the narrowest of margins.
Mike Evetts was Eagles most successful player on the night , taking a brace of games from Richard Parks and Mike Standen , and a hat trick against Colin Oakes , but it was not enough , supported ably though he was by Dean Hicks and John Swinburne , to see The Eagles over the line.
An excellent selection of luxury chocolate biscuits provided by our generous North Birmingham hosts did help to assuage the bitter dregs of defeat. Thanks to them for that and we wish them well for the remainder of their campaign.
