No West Midland team will feature in the national indoor finals at the National Indoor Arena, Birmingham, on Sunday week as Bournville and Sutton Coldfield failed to qualify yesterday.
Bournville missed out on qualifying for the men's finals by two points, finishing fifth in the Premier Division at Cocks Moors Woods Leisure Centre, Kings Heath.
Sutton Coldfield and Slough finished joint fifth in the women's Premier Division. Loughborough Students claimed the men's championship title for the fourth consecutive time and will be joined in the finals at the NIA by Reading, East Grin-stead and Canterbury.
As in the first half of the league programme, Bourn-ville won two and lost two matches. They began badly on Saturday by losing 6-4 to Guildford, for whom James Webber scored all six goals, and then lost 11-7 to East Grinstead. Yesterday they beat relegated St Albans 6-3 and pipped Canterbury 9-8 in the final match of the day but by then it was too late.
At the start of yesterday's programme, Sutton Coldfield still had a chance to qualify even though they were heavily defeated in their first match on Saturday - 7-2 by Slough.
They were then bouyed up by becoming the only team to take points off the eventual champions, Chelmsford, with a 2-2 draw. Jane Sixsmith scored Sutton's goals.
By the time Sutton played their final match, against relegated Clifton, they needed to win by a huge margin to over-take Ipswich. They lost 3-2.
But there was one West Midlands success to celebrate - Olton's promotion to the women's Premier Division alongside Sutton Coldfield.
They celebrated their promotion in style, winning the last match at Worcester in Division One North 18-2 against Ipswich & East Suffolk who were relegated.
Olton lost only one match, 8-6 to second-placed Bradford, and defeated Loughborough Students 7-1.
Aldridge, with four wins out of eight matches, qualify to play in the restructured Division One next season. They lost both matches yesterday but drew 5-5 with Bradford on Saturday and beat Ipswich & East Suffolk 6-1.
Cannock, Birmingham University and Barford Tigers all qualified to play in the men's Division One in 2007. Cannock finished second in Division One North, helped by a 13-1 defeat of Wolverhampton who are relegated from the league having failed to gain any points.
Birmingham University ended the campagn in joint fourth place with Tigers having at the weekend beaten Stourport 9-2 and Harleston Magpies 8-0. The Tigers helped to despatch Stourport to the play-offs next season with a 10-1 victory over them.
* Dudley beat Redditch 3-1 in the third round of the Women's Vase yesterday while Bloxwich lost 5-4 on strokes to Vauxhall Chiltern after drawing 1-1.
* Telford & Wrekin maintained their one-point lead in the Coaching Solutions League and scored their 50th goal of the season by beating Edgbaston 3-1 on Saturday.
Two points behind in third place are Coventry, who gained a 4-1 victory at Shrewsbury. Bridgnorth consolidated their fourth place, one point behind Coventry, by defeating Harborne 4-3.
Olton, like Harborne, slipped further behind the leading pack when they were surprisingly beaten 5-0 at West Bridgford. Sutton Cold-field enhanced their chances of promotion in defeating Leicester Thursday 5-0 in Midlands Division One.
