Team:- Craig Johnson, Andy Sutherland, Stuart Adamson, Ant Hall, Josh McPherson, James dance, Ryan Scott (Simon Volante), Lee Bloxham, Michael Campbell (Neil Kitching), Matty Robinson (Danny Carter), Ben Porter. Subs not used Lee Hunt, Steve Smith.

Coleshill Town came back from a 2-1 deficit to go through 4-3 against Ibstock United. Ben Porter began the Town revival, Neil Kitching put Coleshill in front and man of the match James Dance scored then set up Matty Robinson to make it 4-2 before Richard Lewis replied for United with a penalty.

Coleshill have successfully come through two rounds of the FA Vase and now travel to Stratford in the 1st Round Proper. The FA Vase is for non-league teams up to Level 5 of the national pyramid system, the level that Coleshill now play at. Teams at Level 4 and above, including the Conference play in the FA Trophy, so although Town will compete against some very good teams, they won't meet anyone in a higher level of football, which means that this is their best chance of a Wembley appearance. Stratford are in the same league as Coleshill and are currently above them but in a one off game Coleshill fear no one.

NB Need to look up report from Coleshill Herald, haven't got copy.
