TIVIDALE were crowned West Midland League champions after they battered AFC Bridgnorth 9-0.

Tivi went into the game holding a slender one point lead from Shrewsbury side Haughmond but an early goal from Demetri Brown soon settled the nerves.

Brown went onto bag a first half hat-trick as Tivi turned the screw to build an unassailable 6-0 lead by half time with Dan Smith, Jamal Fuller and Darragh Bustin also on the mark.

There was no let up after the break as Brown made it 7-0, taking his league tally to 31 goals for the season.

Further strikes from Matt Hunt and Harvey Walker duly sealed the title for Dave King's side.

The margin of victory was better than expected as Haughmond surprisingly crashed 5-1 at Dudley Town.

Despite taking an early lead, Haughmond's hopes fell apart when they heard the half time score from Tivi leaving the Robins to run rampant after the break.

Former Tivi favourite Chris Rabone converted twice with Sam Prince, Jordan Davies and Lewis Mitchell also on the mark.

It means Dudley Town will finish in an encouraging 10th place while Tivo go in search of more silverware this week.

They visit Midland League side Atherstone Town on Tuesday in the Birmingham Midweek Cup.

They also have a date with Midland Premier side Sporting Khalsa in the J W Hunt Cup on April 30.

It proved a good day for borough sides as Dudley Sports secured their survival with a thumping 4-0 win over Black Country Rangers thanks to Emile Beckford and Jim Hanson both scoring twice.

It completed a great week for Sports who also pulled off a sensational 4-1 win over Tividale to book their place in the League Cup semi-finals.

Richard Hanson and Emile Beckford both rifled home a brace of goals and set up Sports to face Wolves Casuals on May 4th, with the winners to take on Bewdley Town in the final.

Cradley Town were dealt a jolt when they conceded a goal against Shawbury United after just 20 seconds when Dave Jones intercepted a back-pass to fire past goalkeeper Ben Manley.

Nigel Penney pulled Cradley back level but Jones sealed the points for Shawbury on 72 minutes when converting from a right wing cross.

The result means Cradley complete their West Midlands campaign in 11th place.
