Following the demise of Badsey Rangers it is possible that there could be no senior soccer in Badsey next season.  

Both Montpellier FC and Badsey United, who both play at Ballards Park, are mooted to have made different arrangements for the 2017-18 season. Montpellier, currently lying second in the Midland League Division Three, have spoken of a move to Redditch. This would halve the travelling of their players, who are mostly Birmingham based. It would also insure a ground with floodlights when they gain promotion in the future. 

Badsey United's future at Badsey is less certain. It is rumoured that United's current manager is taking himself, and most of his players, over to Worcester to revive a Perrywood team, which once played in the now defunct Worcester Saturday League. 

Let's hope, for the few ardent fans who rely on these Saturday afternoon matches for their entertainment, that a combined team of the remnants of United and Rangers, can be formed into a new United (or Rangers) team for next season.


Aldington poet, Brian Smith, is asking anyone who bought his first book of poetry, "From Down Sands Lane to Cuckoo Bridge" if they would like to sell it back to him for the original purchase price of 5.
The poetry book, the first of two, sold out completely a couple of years ago. Since then Mr. Smith produced a second book of poetry, and it was the production of this second book, "From Packs Meadow to Pear Tree Corner", that led to a renewed interest in the first. 
So Brian is trying to buy back clean copies of the book to supply to waiting customers.
Due to high printing costs for small runs of books it would not be viable for Brian to print extra books. The proceeds from the profit obtained from both books was donated to Badsey School and Badsey Church.
