WE MEET AGAIN - Bridgnorth Town

Coleshill play hosts to Bridgnorth Town this saturday looking for an upturn in fortunes after four defeats in a row.

Town may go into the game with optimism after the results between the two sides since they were both promoted, Coleshill from the Mid Com and Bridgnorth from the West Mids League, for the 2008/09 season. Two wins and two draws mean Coleshill remain unbeaten by "Bridge" in the Alliance but it's a different story when the two sides have met at Mid Com level or even the FA Vase.

Bridgnorth were founded in 1938 and joined the Worcestershire (now Midland) Combination in 1968. In a 14 year spell they won the league twice and were runners up twice before finally gaining promotion to the Southern League in 1983. After 12 years of struggle at that level they were relegated to the newly formed Midland Alliance in 1994 but were relegated once again to the Midland Combination for the 2005/06 season before transferring to the West Midlands Regional League a year later, which they comfortably won the year Coleshill were Champions of the Mid Com.

So, the teams were together in the Mid Com Premier for the 2005/06 season and also for 8 seasons from 1975.

My records are vague to say the least in those early days but this is what I've got.
