The Chinese premier was in Stratford on Avon yesterday enjoying an excerpt from Hamlet. Unfortunately his schedule did not allow him to visit the well appointed stadium of Stratford Town. Stratford Town Council are not short of money, owning properties in the centre of town and the Anne Hathaway Stadium has a decent stand and particularly good training pitches.
The Bardsmen are always putting one over the Brakes by recruiting their players or beating them in local cups. Now they are staging Birmingham City's home matches in the women's super league. They are getting £15k for the nine matches, plus all the proceeds from selling burgers to what have turned out to be decent crowds.
Brakes kick off their season with a friendly at home to Tamworth on Friday week.
