Coleshill Town 2 v 4 Thurnby Navana

Scorers: Matt Gasper, Simeon Coburn.

Team: Rob Jeffs, Leon Weller, Oliver Casey, Luke Edwards (Jack Hulin), Danny Douglas, Danny Tymon (Dean Withers), Barry Fitzharris, Chris Lloyd (Ryan Nash), Daryl Jones (Jordan Walters), Matt Gasper (Kendrick), Dean Rathbone (Simeon Coburn).

Coleshill suffered their first defeat of the pre-season campaign, in their last outing before the season starts for real next Saturday at home to Continental Star.

Town took the lead through Matt Gasper and looked much the better side but the Leicester side levelled the score before the break with a penalty. Coleshill had chance after chance to take the lead but some poor finishing and an inspired performance by the visitors keeper kept the ball out of the net and Navana took advantage by making the most of the chances that came there way and suddenly they were 4-1 up. Eighteen year old Simeon Coburn came on as sub and showed the more experienced lads how to do it with a fine solo goal.

A few players missing, energy sapping weather and well organised opposition all contributed to the defeat but this was another very good work out for Paul Casey's men as they finalise their preparations for the big kick off next week.
