WE MEET AGAIN - Boldmere St Michaels

Postby Alan Beckett » Fri Jan 03, 2014 6:12 pm


Boldmere are second on the list of teams we have played the most! Highgate United come first with 80 meetings with Boldmere being 57, the earliest being 1919/20. The two teams have met for League games in the Midland Alliance, the Midland Combination, and the Sutton & District League, but they have also met in many cup competitions including the Midland Combination Challenge Cup, the FA Cup, the Birmingham Senior Cup, the Walsall Senior Cup and, for the first time this season, the Midland Alliance League Cup! Interestingly, we have never beaten the Mikes in a cup game! Both sides have a long and rich history going back over 100 years indeed Boldmere have had a book printed to celebrate 125 years of history, “A History Of Boldmere St Michaels FC by Michael Talbot”, check it out!

This season both teams are having a good time! The Mikes are currently 4th in the table with 43 points from their 21 games. Coleshill are just one place behind them with 38 points from 22. We have already played them twice this season, losing in the Alliance Cup and also the league game at Church Road but both games were close, so another tough game is expected!

Since the two sides have come together in the Midland Alliance, honours are even: P11 W5 D1 L5 F13 A14. In fact, take away the Alliance results and Coleshill have only ever beat Boldmere three other times in all their meetings in the Midland Combination and Sutton League.

My records are very vague in the late 70’s and early 80’s but this is what I’ve got.
