Birmingham hosted Bath Academy and ran out handsome winners by nine goals to five. Birmingham finished the first half by conceding no goals and scoring five. To their credit, Bath came out with increased tenacity in the second half and scored two quick goals. Birmingham were encouraged to wake up having evidently complacent after their first half dominance. Defensive errors cost both sides but this could not disguise some wonderful attacking football, which was a joy to watch. Birmingham look forward to meeting Bath again in the forthcoming Cife football tournament at the FA’s St George’s Park.
