Coleshill Land Bright Signing
Coleshill Town are set to become the latest Premier Division club to !fight up. The Pack Meadow side have bought the floodlights from former Beazer Midland side Leicester United, who folded at the start of this season. Coleshill snapped up eight 16-metre pylons from the now redundant United Park at Enderby in a deal with Sid Osborne, the former Armitage 90 owner who also closed down Leicester in September. The next step for Coleshill is to complete the necessary ground works and then - with planning permission already secured - erecting the pylons. Coleshill, like all Premier clubs threatened with relegation if they do not have lights next season, hope to have them switched on by the end of February. Manager Martin Sockett said that the lights would start a new era for the club. As well as the obvious benefit of avoiding any fixture backlog and playing games mid-week, Coleshill intend to extend their youth set-up with an under 18's team and allow evening coaching sessions for local youngsters. "We're delighted to have the lights because they are of such a good quality. It's excellent news for the club," said Sockett. He added, "From a personal point of view, it was tinged with a bit of sadness. I played on United Park against Leicester and it's a shame to think there's no club left." Coleshill have added to their squad by signing former Nuneaton Borough defender Adie Greatorex from Racing Club Warwick.
