Bloxwich started well. Green created the opening beating three players to set up Davis, but the latter's shot was straight at the keeper. Coleshill almost took the lead in the 18th minute, Bailey won the race for a long ball and knocked it past the advancing goalkeeper but his shot was to weak. Bloxwich took the lead on the half hour, Green turned the defence to set up Mansell, who cracked the ball past the Coleshill goalkeeper.
Half Time: Coleshill 0 v 1 Bloxwich.

Bloxwich rattled off their first win of the season at a wet and windy Pack Meadow. All the action came in the first half. The visitors opened well with Green being a constant threat to the Coleshill defence. On the half hour it was Green again who turned Coleshill's defence to set up Mansell for the winner. Coleshill's best chance of the half came when Bailey's shot was cleared off the line. For all their second half possession Coleshill could not find a way through Bloxwich's well drilled defence.
