Sunday Mercury Wrote:
The first chance fell to Solihull when Martin Evans floated over a cross that was volleyed just over by Steve George in the 10th minute. The persistence of the Solihull team was soon rewarded in the 21st Minute when Gary Waring slid the ball home. On half time, a superb header by Steve George was saved brilliantly by Coleshill keeper Lutwyche. In the second half, Coleshill began to put on pressure and were rewarded in the 54th minute when a bad back pass let in Coleshill No9 Keith Donavan, who crossed for John Taylor to level. Solihull regained the lead when Trindle fired home a 20 yard free kick in the 70th minute. Solihull's Waring twice went close before Coleshill equalised against the run of play. Steve Morgan handled in the penalty area and John Taylor slotted home in the 80th minute. Solihull continued to press and Trindle notched his second and Solihull's winner five minutes from time.

John Taylor still gets in the Green Man so he is a candidate for “An Interview With.........!” Watch out John I’m after you!
Coleshill start their season on Saturday 31st August at home to Olton. They competed in the Birmingham Youths’ And Old Boys A.F.A League, Mercian Division, and played their home games at the Memorial Park. Last season they finished third and got to the semi final of the Senior Cup.
