The Oval played Harper Bell and Brownmead on 11th May 2017.

In the first match, Harper Bell required a late penalty to secure all 3 points in a keenly contested fixture against a battling Oval side. Oval's 'keeper was in terrific form pulling off a number of fine saves to keep the Digbeth-based side at bay. Oval themselves though had the best chance of the first half but a point blank save from Bell's shot-stopper kept the sides level. With defences on top in a tight second half, the late penalty, awarded for a trip on Bells' left-winger, decided the outcome after he picked himself up to slot home.

Oval then had to go again as they faced the division's other title chasers, Brownmead. The first half ended goal-less but Brownmead took the lead early on in the second half with a well worked goal. Oval then began to put some passes together but as they chased an equaliser, Brownmead broke away and a counter-attacking goal sealed the victory for the Shard-enders.

Harper Bell were very complimentary about The Oval football team, so our team should be proud for acquitting themselves in such a fashion against the top two sides in the division.
