Youths Fire Into Title Mix!

By Joe Perkins

Huge win for Yardley over Bernie's. Bad night for Matt's as they go down twice. Bernie's remain in hunt despite setback.

Yardley Youths leapt up to fourth place in the La Liga table as they took a maximum 6 points from their two games over in Nechells on Tuesday evening; the Youths lie just 3 points off SSP&P at the top and they have a game in hand.
Both Yardley and St Bernadette's trooped over to Nechells on Tuesday evening to take on each other and hosts, St Matthew's.
The Youths left with a maximum 6 points after they toppled St Matt's 6-0 and edged out Bernie's, 1-0, in a much tighter affair - a big win for Yardley, and a damaging defeat for Bernie's. Both victories delighted boss, Mr Walmsley, who had to travel without three regular first-teamers.
In the evening's other game, Bernie's took some solace from their trip as they defeated a battling St Matt's side, 4-0 and in the process took themselves to second in the table.
And the top of La Liga remains incredibly tight with just five points between Hillstone in sixth and P&P in first. It will all change again next week as Hillstone face SSP&P and in another heavyweight battle, Audley in fifth place cross swords with Abbey, in third - plus there's the small matter of the Nechells derby as E-ACT and Cromwell clash over at Maryvale.
Exciting times indeed!

Where next?
