League Tables - 2000/01

And what an awful season it was.   Atrocious weather conditions, a fuel strike and an outbreak of 'foot and mouth' which all went to ensure that disruption could not have been worse.   All credit to those teams which managed to complete their fixture list, not too many.   In the end, once the major issues had been settled, I think we were all pleased just to give it up as a 'bad job'.

The battle in the Premier Division was just as thrilling as in seasons past with Kidderminster Harriers, Lichfield Diamonds, Stratford, Tamworth and Shifnal Town all leading the table at one stage or another.   Casualties included Ledbury, Great Wyrley and Hereford United and the constant deletions and additions of points from the tables had us guesssing to the very end.   Yet again Lichfield fell at the final hurdle and as in both of the previous two seasons they finished as runners up.   But a twist in the tale turned failure into success as Kidderminster Harriers declined promotion to the Midland Combination League.  So by finishing in 2nd position Lichfield at long last gained the promotion they have worked so hard for over the years.

The contest in Division One North was a little less  hectic although Bridgnorth Town, in their very first season, put up a most creditable display in chasing North Staffordshire Ladies to the very end.   Although they finished 6 points adrift they can be well pleased with what they achieved.   North Staffs meanwhile showed themselves to be far superior than anyone else in the league losing just one game in the entire season.

West Bromwich Albion went through the first half of the season without dropping a point in Division One South at which stage they were running away with the title.   But then defeat at the hands of Villa Veterans seemed to unbalance them and at one point it all appeared likely to slip away.   Fortunately their revival came none to soon and they went on to lift the title narrowly from Villa Vets, their main challengers throughout.

Coventry City dropped only 4 points in cantering to success in the Reserve Division.   Only Leicester City were any sort of a threat.   Operating for the very first time, very much as an experiment, the Reserve Division accommodated 9 teams and looks set to continue in the coming season

League Cup Competitions also faced major disruption with the Division One Cup abandoned before a ball was kicked.   The competitions did go ahead in the Premier and Reserve Divisions where Lichfield beat Tamworth by 4-1 and Leicester City turned the tables on Coventry to steal a dramatic victory by 3-2.
