This was the first full season of competition for the team.

Criminal case – Midlands v Danny Dawson. Dawson was charged with Murder and Driving Under the Influence resulting in the death of a passenger in his car after a night out at a bar. On September 24, 2010, Vanessa Sullivan, daughter of Midland’s most prominent prosecutor, celebrated her 21st birthday with two friends at Chuggie’s Sports Bar. After several hours of celebration the three left the bar. Vanessa never made it home.
