Sunday Mercury Wrote:
A superb goalkeeping display by Ganner and a fine 20 yard goal from Merrick eight minutes from time gained Bolehall revenge for an early season defeat by Coleshill. Coleshill created most of the chances and in the first 20 minutes Ganner had to make fine saves to prevent Mullholland and Sandiford from scoring with shots from the edge of the area. In the second half Coleshill continued to dominate and in the 55 minute Scally had a shot saved by Ganner and then a Mullholland cross was met by Edmunds whose header produced a reflex save by the Bolehall goalkeeper. In the closing stages Merrick struck the Coleshill bar with a header and in the 82nd minute he scored the match winner with a 20 yard volley.

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

Coleshill were due to play Amington Rovers in the Chapel End Cup but the game was rescheduled for the next week, I suspect due to bad weather.
