Saturday 9th November 1985
Walsall Senior Cup
Wednesfield Social 2 v 0 Coleshill Town

Social can thank their new sining Simon Peach for setting up a victory over their Midland Combinstion opponents. Peach had a tremendous first half with three good chances to score including a shot cleared off the line but it was Paul Simpson who blotted the Social copybook missing a penalty after he had been brought down. The second half was all Social and the visitors ran out of steam with Parker skimming the post and Cunningham forcing a great save from Eagles with an over head effort. It was fitting that Peach should open the scoring with 15mins to go when Cunningham went down the left and a three man move across the Coleshill area left Peach with a 25 yard shot into the far corner. Roger Cope got the second 5mins later with a side footed goal but had to thank Simpson for the chance as the Social winger beat four defenders on his way down the right flank.

Coleshill Town 3 v 4 Paget Rangers

Scorers: Hodgkinson 2, Curtis.

Town smashed into a two goal lead within 6mins through new signing Hodgkinson at Coleshill Town. But when half time arrived Paget had levelled the scores. Misfortune befell the Town when Bevan and Wilson collided, Bevan recieving a badly cut head and Wilson suffering concussion. Hodgkinson was forced to retire with a pulled mustle and although Curtis added another goal, the visitors claimed two further goals to leave the Town beaten.

League Record So Far
P8 W4 D0 L4 Not confirmed
Results are vague but Coleshill definately lost three of the first five league games but have picked up and I think have won four.

Next week Coleshill are at Home to Castle Bromwich in the Birmingham Youth and Old Boys League.


Saturday 9th November 1935
Sutton & District Amatuer F.A. Division 1.
Coleshill Town 4 v 3 Hurley F.C.

No details of scorers available.

The meeting of Coleshill Town and Hurley FC produced one of the keenest games seen this season on the Parkfield Road enclosure. The forwards on each side were brilliant and the football was of a high order. The Town secured the verdict by the odd goal in seven but a draw would have been a better reflection of the run of the game.

P5 W4 D0 L1 F25 A15 Pts8 Pos 3/11

Next week Coleshill take on local rivals Coleshill Hall in the 1st round of the Coleshill Charity Cup.


Saturday 5th November 1910
Birmingham Junior Cup 2nd Round.
Glascote Heath Albion 2 v 8 Coleshill Town

Scorers: Wright 5, Watkins 2, Williams.

These teams met at Glascote on Saturday last, Coleshill put their full strength in the field save that Lilley took Clarke's place at right half. The game opened in favour of Coleshill and soon after the start Watkins opened the scoring for the "Rabbits". Coleshill continued to have the best of the play and through the instrumentality of Wright the lead was soon increased to three goals. After this the Glascote lads woke up from their dream and soon put on two goals. The interval arrived with Coleshill 3, Glascote 2.
Re-starting, the "Rabbits" at once began to force the pace and Wright soon put two goals to his credit. The second was a beauty, meeting Williams centre with his head, into the net the ball went and left the Glascote defence astonished. Coleshill continued to have all the game as regards goal scoring. First Williams and then Watkins helped the score up and towards the the close Wright helped himself to another. The homesters tried hard to reduce the lead but they failed to beat the strong defence and when the whistle blew Coleshill had once more had a walk over to the tune of 8 goals to 2.
Coleshill Team: Goal: Humphries, Backs: Shaw and Caswell, Half Backs: Lilley, Clare (captain) and Clive, Forwards: Sullivan, Watkins, Wright, Lewis, and Williams.
Referee Mr Bristoll of Wilnecote.
Today, Saturday, Coleshill meet Dosthill at Coleshill in the second round of the Fazeley Cup. Kick off, three o'clock prompt.

That the "Rabbits" beat Glascote by 8 goals to 2 last Saturday.
That as a consequence their tails are more erect than ever.
That Coleshill will be short of Sullivan today against Dosthill.
That despite this, it ought to be a certainty.
That they have another easy thing in the 2nd round of the Wilnecote Cup in being drawn with Amington Rovers at Coleshill.
That Coleshill are drawn against Chapel End United at Coleshill in the 3rd round of the Birmingham Junior Cup.
That it will certainly be the match of the season so far.
