Coleshill Net A Vital Point
Up against second in the table Paget, Coleshill showed that their six goal thrashing of Cradley Town was no fluke, when they deservedly picked up another Midland Combination First Division point. In a hard, physical, but always sporting battle, Coleshill worked hard to stem some strong Paget attacks and non did better than full back Terry Allen and keeper Terry Sammons. In the first few minutes Allen expertly headed a shot from Burns clear and Sammons saved well from Rogers and Smith. Sammons also dived bravely at the feet of Smith to prevent a certain goal, before Coleshill countered with John Blythe and Barrie Canning prominent. In the 55th minute Hobbs headed into the Paget net, but the goal was disallowed for an infringement. Sammons was again to the rescue for Coleshill turning away a 35 yard shot from Larcombe, but with Les Stonebridge opening up play, with some fine distribution, Coleshill finished strongly and both Blythe and Canning went close to snatching success. This was Coleshill's third point from ten league games and they have now moved off the bottom rung.
