Barwell were only formed in 1992, an amalgamation of Barwell Athletic FC and Hinckley FC. Barwell Athletic played in the Leicester Senior League so Coleshill never played them but Hinckley were in the Midland Combination and that’s where the new team started life!

Barwell were in the Midland Combination from 1992 and then joined the Alliance in 1994 so we played them for two years in the Mid Com and then again from 2008 until 2010 in the Alliance before they got promoted! We have also played them in the FA Vase beating them at their Kirby Road Ground. In 1992/93 we did the double over “The Kirby Roaders” (very original nickname) and finished above them in the league, a very creditable 7th place. However it was the 1993/94 that was the important one as the top half of the league were to split at the start of the next season to start the new “Midland Alliance”. Coleshill couldn’t match the efforts of the previous season (17th) and were left behind. Barwell, despite finishing in a lowly 12th place, were invited to be founder members of the Alliance and the rest is history! They currently play two levels above us having been promoted to the Evo Stick Northern Premier League, Premier Division in 2010/11.
