Midland Combination Division 1
Coleshill Town 1 v 3 Oldbury United


Team: Terry Sammons, Howes, Saunders, O'Rouke, Davies, Hobbs, Barrie Canning, Hevingham, Tolley, Andrew Canning, Butler. Sub Morrisey.

The game got off to a brisk start with Canning and Hevingham going close for Coleshill and Wedgebury and Nichols for Oldbury. After 15 minutes Olbury took command of the game and only great goalkeeping by Coleshill's Sammons kept the sheet clean. After 37 minutes Bridget weaved his way through the Coleshill defence, laid the ball across the 6 yard line and Nichols sidefooted the ball into the net. After 40 minutes Coleshill's left back Davies was carried off with concussion. In the closing minutes Bryon went close again for Oldbury.
Half Time: Coleshill Town 0 v 1 Oldbury Town
