WE MEET AGAIN – LOUGHBOROUGH UNIVERSITY


Coleshill have only played Loughborough University eleven times before. Twice in Town's Midland Combination championship winning season, the Uni having been promoted from nowhere to the Com that year and five seasons, including the present one, in the Midland Alliance.

They have the pick of the fit, young, promising students throughout the country as Loughborough is far and away the best sporting university in the country. So when you play them you know they will be well organised and very, very fit as they train each day. Their problem of course is that the personnel change year on year but there is always a crop of talented kids coming through the ranks.

After a first season 13th placed finish, the Uni have consistently finished in the top six of the Alliance and last season they were fourth come the season end. This year they are currently 14th with just 12 wins and from their 37 games.

Coleshill put in a Jekyll and Hyde performance at the Universities new home, an impressive stadium that makes you think Loughborough University are ambitious and I would not be surprised if they win the Alliance in the next few years. Leading 3-1 at half time, and a perfectly good goal chalked off due to incompetent officials, Coleshill collapsed in the second half and conceded five goals in just 19 minutes.

After two defeats and a draw in their last three games, Coleshill will be looking to get back to winning ways to secure their best ever finish in the Midland Football Alliance.

Honours are very even between the two sides with four wins each and three draws, with both teams having scored 17 goals!
