Paul On Target To Cheer Coleshill
Town showed their intentions after only four minutes when Christopher narrowly shot wide. Bolehall put the pressure on after 15mins but although winning a number of corners, failed to put a shot on goal until full back Young forced goalkeeper Yeoman to push the ball over the cross bar. Williams and Christopher both came close for Town before the break. In the second half Coppinger and Wingford forced keeper Yeoman to save but it was Town who were looking the stronger. They were rewarded for their efforts eight minutes from time when Hughes was brought down by Merrick on the edge of the box. Paul hit a low hard drive around the Bolehall wall giving keeper Canner no chance at his near post.

Colin Radburn opened Town’s account after 30mins and followed up with a further goal five minutes later. Colin Reynolds scored a third. Harry Stokes shot a picture goal from the outside right position beating three men before tapping the ball past Holt. He crowned a good show by notching Town’s 5th goal.

Coleshill Town v Wilnecote Trinity – Match Postponed.
Coleshill Chronicle Wrote:-
The Wilnecote Trinity match had to be abandoned owing to the home teams suspention. The suspention has now been removed and the cup tie with Sutton Town will definitely take place. A strong team has been chosen and a capital game should take place
