WE MEET AGAIN - HEATHER ST JOHNS

WE MEET AGAIN - Heather St John

The Saints were formed in 1949 and moved to their current home St Johns Park, in 1993, and you can't help but be impressed with the set up there. Heather have hosted several Midland Combination Finals and representative games due to their excellent facilities. Heather moved to the Midland Combination in 2003 after previously playing in the Leicester and District League and gained promotion to the Premier league for the start of the 2007/08 season the year Coleshill decided, after 33 years of trying, it was their turn to win the league. So, after only one season doing battle Coleshill stepped up to the Alliance and St John joined them for the start of last season, therefore Town have only met their opponents four times before in the league. They have also met once in the F.A Cup, in 20010/11, when Coleshill beat St Johns on their way to the 3rd Qualifying Round where they were finally beaten by Nuneaton in front of a 900 strong crowd.

Town have slightly the upper hand as they have beaten Heather three times in all competitions and have only lost the once. Heather are currently lying in 14th place in the league, 8 points ahead of Coleshill. They did look as if they were well out of the relegation fight but they lost to Heath Hayes on Saturday last and if Coleshill can record a win then St John will be dragged back down amongst the nine teams now striving to avoid the drop.
