Coleshill have been playing Star pretty much every season since 1997 and their style hasn't changed in all that time. They play at a very high tempo, work like Trojans and never, ever give up!!! To beat them you have to match their work rate first before you can play your own game! For Coleshill there was nothing on the game last night with Runners-Up spot secured but the hosts still needed at least a point to stave off the threat of relegation. A goalless draw looked the most likely outcome as both sides spurned chances but a wonder strike from substitute Devonte Sterling was good enough to win any game!
Simeon Cobourne had Coleshill best chances in the first half against his old team, a shot just wide of the post, a lob over the keeper that went well wide and a fine run that should have ended with a free kick but the referee said no! For the home team O'Garro headed over, Jabbi hit a dipping shot only just wide and Reid's shot skimmed the bar.
The second half continued in the same vein, Chris Jay made a great save from Jabbi, Cobourne shot wide when sent clear by Dean Rathbone but midway through the half Sterling looked to be going nowhere only to hit a shot from fully 30 yards that screamed into the top corner despite the full length dive of keeper Jay. Coleshill tried to get back into the game but the home defence held firm particularly centre back Matt Hunt who missed nothing all night!
A disappointing result but heh ho! This has been an incredible season and isn't spoilt by one game! Two home games to go and that's it for another season. It will all start again very, very soon!!!
