Scorer: Derek Christopher pen.
Sunday Mercury Wrote:
Competent Coleshill severely dented the championship hopes of Boldmere St Michaels. A first half penalty by Derek Christopher gave Coleshill the points to add to a Birmingham Senior Cup victory gained against the “Mikes” earlier in the season. Coleshill took the lead after 31 minutes when, following an infringement, Christopher scored from the spot with a well struck drive.

A period of seriously bad weather set in. Firstly snow, then frost and finally waterlogged pitches meant a period of 12 weeks past, from 22nd December, before Coleshill played again.

This game was called off at the last minute. Coleshill travelled and were ready to play but a league official said the owner of the field declared the field unplayable.
Coleshill are drawn against Amington Rovers, January 18th, in the second round of the Chapel End Cup. Coleshill have already gained four points off Amington this season in League matches.
