Didn't we play Dudley Town, KO 10am, a few seasons back. It was the same day England played Sweden in the quarter finals of the World Cup.

Edit - on second thoughts, I think KO would have been a little later than that.
Think this was an 11am KO chap.
Yep, think you're right. It was definitely a morning game. It was bloody hot, I know that much.

As any fule kno, they used to be called Studley BKL.

But what did the BKL stand for?

Top work.

I think the K might be “Kein” but I can’t quite remember. The internet is oddly silent on the matter, but it’s an old chestnut on here, and I think we first found the answer when the newsroom at the Halesowen News ground to a halt to do the research on our behalf.

Ettingshall HT?
AP Leamo?
The “FC” in Stourbr*dge Town FC? 😉

Ninja edit, you’re right Sir, Kilme it is.

I now know much more about lathes than I did 5 minutes ago.
The Capstan Lathe seems particularly impressive as it's "suitable for bar work".
"Three pints of mild and a bag of scratchings please mate".

Love it. I can't think of a way of throwing this thread off topic any further. Westy might have a go though....
