THIS WEEK - 16, 25, 50, 75 and 100 Years Ago


Saturday 11th February 1995
Skol Midland Combination Premier Division
Wellesbourne 4 v 1 Coleshill Town

Scorer: Jason Phillips.

Second placed Wellesbourne survived some wretched weather to close the gap on Skol Midland Combination Premier leaders Northfield Town after beating Coleshill Town 4-1 at a rain-soaked Loxley Road. Wellesbourne spokesman Raymond Burns claimed " The ref made a really brave decision to play the game but he was proved right as the pitch held up marvellously." Anthony Hogan fired Wellesbourne into a 30th min lead but Jason Phillips brought Coleshill back on level terms before half time when Wellesbourne keeper Neil Massey fumbled his cross shot. Harjit Dhesi put Wellesbourne back in front 5mins into the second half when he shocked Coleshill by netting direct from a corner. Anthony Hogan smashed in his second goal after 75mins before Ian Billington wrapped up the points with a 4th goal in the dying seconds.

There must have been some bad weather about as Coleshill didn't play again until 1st March at Home to Solihull Borough in the league.

Results are vague with very little info from Chronicle or Argus.

Next week Coleshill play Olton in the Aston Villa Shield.


Saturday 15th February 1936
Coleshill Charity Cup Semi Final
Hams Hall 6 v 2 Coleshill Town

No scorers available.

The Semi Final of the Coleshill Charity Cup was of special interest to the league as both clubs engaged are members (Sutton & District). What was fully expected to be a very close affair, proved otherwise as Hams Hall won comfortably by 6 goals to 2.

League Record So Far
P12 W8 D0 L2 F37 A20 Pts20 Pos 3/11 Two results missing plus goals from 1st Hall game.

Next week it doesn't look as though Coleshill have a game.


Saturday 11th February 1911
Coleshill Charity Cup 3rd Round Replay
Kettlebrook Oakfield 2 v 1 Coleshill Town

Scorer: Wright (pen).


These teams met in the replay of the Coleshill Charity Cup at Kettlebrook, on Saturday last. It will be remembered that when they met a few weeks ago at Coleshill the game ended in a draw of two goals each. Both sides were strongly represented, although Coleshill were minus Caswell and Clive. The latter was present watching the game and is looking forward to playing again in a few weeks. The referee having failed to turn up, the Captains tossed for possession of the whistle and this fell to Coleshill.
The opening exchanges were in favour of Kettlebrook, Coleshill now and again getting dangerous. Try how they would neither side could score. Kettlebrook failing with a penalty close on the interval.
On resuming Coleshill opened in a promising manner but not till well on into the half did the scoring take place. Wright shot the first goal for Coleshill from a penalty and soon after Kettlebrook scored twice, eventualling winning by 2 goals to 1.
Coleshill Team: Humphries, Whorton, Green, Clarke, Clare (capt), Watkins, R. Nichols, J.A.Nichols, Wright, Lewis, and Williams.
Referee: Mr W.E. Barber.
It was not a good game, but Kettlebrook deserved the win. The weakest part about the Coleshill team was their forwards and unless a vast improvement is quickly made it will be good-bye to all the cups. Today Coleshill journey to Wilnecote to meet Kingsbury Colliery in the Semi Final of the Wilnecote Charity Cup.

"Coleshill Jottings"
I hear that the Coleshill Football Club have made some sweeping changes in their team to oppose Kingsbury Colliery in the Semi Final of the Wilnecote Charity Cup. No less than four changes in the forward line, one in the halves and one in the back division. Let us hope it will turn out for the best. Certainly it is time something radical was done. They cannot do worse and it remains to be seen if they do better.

League Record So Far
P9 W5 D0 L4 F33 A17 Pts10.
