Saturday 24th September 1910
Youth and Old Boys Senior Division 1
Aston Manor 2 v 10 Coleshill Town

Scorers: Wright 3, Clive, Lewis 2, Williams 2, Nichols, O.G.

Coleshill met Aston Manor at Witton on Saturday last in the return League match. It was delightful weather and there was a fair muster of supporters. Both sides had effected eight alterations in the teams that opposed each other the previous week.
The Coleshill side lined up as follows:
Goal: Humphries, Backs: Shaw and Caswell, Half Backs: Clare, Haycock and Clive (captain), Forwards: Nichols, Watkins, Wright, Lewis and Williams. Referee: Mr Holmes, of Saltley.
Coleshill won the toss and Clive set the home team to face the sun. The opening exchanges were in Coleshill's favour and from a nice pass by Watkins, Wright scored the first goal of the match six minutes from starting. Midfield play followed for a time, each team having their share of the game. Then the "Rabbits" came again and the balll swinging across nicely from the right, Clive gathered it, and scored No2 with a brilliant shot. A little later Lewis scored No3. At this point of the game Caswell had the misfortune to hurt his knee, and although he pluckily stayed on, it handicapped the Coleshill defence somewhat. Just before half time Aston broke away on the left and scored a capital goal. No more scoring was done before half time, when the score stood: Coleshill 3 Aston Manor 1.
Re-starting Coleshill at once commenced to force matters, and Lewis scored a good goal. Then Williams got possession, ran down the left, and finished up by scoring with a splendid shot. A few minutes later Wright headed a beauty through and made it No5. This rapid scoring was not to the liking of the Aston Brigade and they struggled desperatley to reduce the lead but the Coleshill half back line were playing a brilliant game and repeatedl;y broke up the weak attack of the Manor forwards. From a free kick Wright gathered the ball and with a fine individual effort beat all opposition and scored. Coleshill continued to press hotly and Williams helped himself to No8. From a break away Aston Manor scored their second goal but this only seemed to make Coleshill play all the better. Forcing a corner on the right, Nichols placed it nicely and one of the Aston backs, in attempting to clear, headed through his own goal. Just before the close Nichols scored another and so made it double figures.
When the whistle blew Coleshill had won a very one-sided game by 10 goals to 2.
Comment is needless. It was simply a day out for the "Rabbits". All the same, it cost us dearly, for Caswell hurt his knee seriously, and Nichols got a nasty knock on the leg, so that both these players will be unable to turn out for the cup-tie today. Wright also twisted his knee a little.
Today, Saturday, Coleshill start on their long list of cup-ties and history looks like repeating itself, for last year when we strted the cup-ties we wwere only able to practically put about half our strength in the field. Kingsbury Athletic are, perhaps, not our calibre, but things look not too rosy. Let us hope, however, something will turn up. The saturday after Coleshill journey to Glascote, in the first round of the Birmingham Junior Cup, to meet Glascote Working Men's Club.

That Coleshill Football Club had an easy time last saturday.
That much of the game was shooting practise.
That even one of the opposing backs involuntarily helped to swell the total.
That the "Rabbits" are grateful to him but prefer to kick their own goals.
That with two or three men injured they will have their work cut out this saturday.
That Coleshill Football Club play Kingsbury Athletic today at Coleshill in the first round of the Fazely Cup.
That owing to injuries to players and others being on their holidays, the "Rabbits" will be poorly represented.
ThatPoynter, a new back from Saltley Highfield is being given a trial.
That he only has to play up to last years form to be a great help to the club.
That the next saturday Coleshill journey to Glascote to meet the Working Mens Club in the first round of the Birmingham Junior Cup.

Record So Far

P4 W3 D0 L1 F24 A8 Pts6

Next week Coleshill are at Home to Kingsbury Athletic in the first Round of the Coleshill Charity Cup.
