COLESHILL CHRONICLE WROTE
Town Still Pointless
These are dark days for Coleshill being bogged down at the bottom of their league. The Town were holding Walmley to a 0-0 draw when an injury to their centre half left them with ten men. This allowed the Walmley forwards to find the vacant spot to their advantage and both their goals were provided by outside left Peter Tunstall.

THIRTY ENTER THE CHARITY CUP
“Since It’s Inauguration in 1905, The Coleshill Charity Cup Has Been A Means Of Raising A Great Deal Of Money For The Needy Of The Town, But Now It’s Existence And tradition Are In Jeopardy.”
This was the disturbing news announced by Charity Cup Secretary Sid Boucher at the beginning of June. But after the first round draw for this year’s competition had been made, Mr Boucher was a very happy man. Thirty clubs have entered and the first round ties take place on October 17th.

Adverts to for local shopkeepers, Thomas Wait, wine merchant, W.J Randell Carpets and Linoleums for example!
