COLESHILL HERALD WROTE
Injuries, suspensions and work commitments finally caught up with Coleshill as they struggled to field eleven fit players for the long trip to County Sports. However, those that were available played well against a poor Sports side who are desperate for points near the foot of the table. The first half was very even and a Ray Scandrett effort that hit the bar was the closest Coleshill came. However, defensive errors saw them go two goals behind before a switch in tactics pushed Dave Wilson into a more attacking position. The County defence could not cope with the youngsters pace and when he was felled in the box, captain Ant McManus converted from the spot for his eleventh goal of the season. Wilson continued to cause panic in the home penalty area but Sports held on to secure three valuable points.
