Aces Crowned Champions at Perry Hall Park

The Wednesfield aces took victory on Sunday to seal the Midland League title dropping just one loss all season long.
The Aces lead from the off with a 6-4 opening win however the Monarchs always kept in close distance throughout but with the visitors just holding the extra edge.
A home maximum in heat 8 from Millward and Johnson levelled the score at 40 all only for the Aces to fire in one of their own in the 9th.
Timms and Johnson won heats 10 and 11 respectively before a killer blow was dealt in the 12th with Hancox and Winwood on the receiving end of a maximum (55-64) but hit straight back with a 7-3 for Groves/Timms to give themselves hope in the closing stages.
However by the time the home side took another advantage, in the 18th heat, the match had already been won for the Wolverhampton side.
With Leicester winning their final match of the year they become runners up with Birmingham having to settle for 3rd overall.
BIRMINGHAM MONARCHS 87 – Ricki Johnson 18+1 (5), Chris Timms 15+1 (5), Nathan Groves 13+1 (5), Scott Millward 13+1 (5), Mark Winwood 11 (5), Paul Timms 8+2 (5), Ewan Hancox 8 (5), Jake Steel 1 (1) v WEDNESFIELD ACES 92.
The 2nd division match also went the way of the Aces who romped to victory on the day despite carrying a huge points penalty. The win being 47-83 however after penalty points removed the amended score was 34-43.
BIRMINGHAM MONARCHS 34 – Steve Hodgkinson 13 (4), Ewan Hancox 9+1 (4), Jake Steel 8 (5), Marc Phipps 7+1 (5), Emily Pitt 5, Josh Davies 5. V WEDNESFIELD ACES 43.
