50 Years Ago 1962/63

Saturday 25th August 1962
Birmingham Youth & Old Boys League, Mercian Division.
Castle Bromwich v Coleshill Town
Result and scorers unknown.
As I keep saying, sometimes results/details are hard to come by! I know Coleshill were playing Castle Bromwich as the fixture appeared in the Coleshill Chronicle but no match report/result was found. However, a week later the Chronicle wrote “After two handsome victories Coleshill Town were held to a home draw by Hillbrook”, so we know Coleshill won the first two games of the season.

100 Years Ago 1912/13

Coleshill didn’t start their season until 7th September, away to Atherstone, so it will be a couple weeks before we go into detail with results. Town were in the Trent Valley League for this one season. They had been in the Birmingham Youth & Old Boys League for six seasons but decided to give the Tamworth based league a try. War broke out in 1914 and when football re-started for the 1919/20 season Coleshill joined the Sutton & District League.

Depending on the year, it is sometimes very difficult to pick up good information! If you are able to help with facts and figures or even photographs please contact the web site. Many Thanks.
