WE MEET AGAIN - Highgate United

WE MEET AGAIN - Highgate United

Coleshill meet possibly their closest, fiercest and definitely their longest rivals, weather permitting, at Pack Meadow on bank holiday Monday.

Highgate were formed in 1948, ironically by a group of orphans from Father Hudson's Homes in Coleshill. They played in the South Birmingham League but in 1964 they joined the then Worcestershire Combination, later to become the Midland Combination, after moving to Tythebarn Lane.

Coleshill Town joined them in the Mid Com's top flight in 1975 and from then the two teams have met every year, apart from 2000/01 when Coleshill dropped into Div 1 for a season, and after all those years of trying, they even made the step up to the Alliance together.

In all Highgate spent 43 seasons in the Mid Com, winning the title 3 times, and playing more than 1600 games, outstripping Coleshill's 32 seasons and nearly 1200 games. Only Walsall Wood, Northfield, West Midlands Police and Knowle, who are all still playing in the Com, could compete with those figures.

In total the two teams have met 72 times, 68 league and four cup matches, with Highgate coming out on top. Indeed, records would suggest Highgate are a bit of a bogey side to Coleshill. In the last 20 meetings Town have only won four times, last year Highgate enjoyed a double of victories and in the year that Coleshill finally lifted the Mid Com Title they lost to the Gate three times (once in the Challenge Cup). On the bright side, that year, after losing to the Gate at Pack Meadow, the Colemen then went on a 12 game unbeaten run to pip Highgate to the championship on the last day of the season.

This season Coleshill are 8 places and 12 points above Highgate who have only won four games. So, a definite three points in the bag! Don't bet on it!
