LEAGUE champions Ys gave second-placed Atherstone a lesson in finishing at Tilehouse Lane. The crowd, considering the heavy rain, did not have to wait very long for the first score, coming after only 30 seconds with a successful conversion from Jake White making it 7 - 0.

The visitors could not cope with the speed and passing of the home side. Excellent support play from the mobile forwards ensured that the scoreboard operator would be in for a busy afternoon. Half time was reached with the score at 36-0 and the final half hour saw the familiar sight of Y’s fitness ensuring that there would be no way back for the visitors.

The club’s veterans side, The Vandals, meanwhile were champions of the Greater Birmingham Merit Table.
