The Title race is ON! Coleshill got just a little closer to the league leaders with a hard earned win over a very good Westfields side, and at the same time Alvechurch fell to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Long Eaton. Coleshill are now Six points behind Church with a game in hand and the two sides meet at Pack Meadow on Saturday 15th April in what could be a title decider.

Coleshill were the better team in the first half and should have been further ahead than just the one goal scored by Mykel Beckley in the 17th minute. Westfields played much better in the second half and had the majority of possession but had little to offer in the final third but they levelled the scores from the penalty spot on the hour mark. At that point the visitors looked the more likely to go on to win the game but this Coleshill team has something special and they upped their game and took the lead through Tom Weale on 80 minutes and then Reece Leek pinched the ball off a defender in the dying minutes to make the points safe.
