Saturday 8th November 1980
Midland Combination Division 1
Evesham United 1 v 1 Coleshill Town
Scorer: Barry Canning (Sunday Mercury says Canning but Argus says Osman)

P12 W1 D3 L8 F10 A25 Pts5 Pos19/20

Team: Terry Sammons, Howes, Hevingham, Allen, Povey, Calder, Les Stonebridge, Osman, Barry Canning, Blythe, Browning. Sub Hobbs.

Osman Rocks Evesham

Coleshill rocked home side Evesham when snatching the lead through Osman in the 37th minute. Their celebrations, however, were short lived when three minutes later Bass put Evesham back on level terms from the penalty spot. The early pressure came from Coleshill but when Evesham broke away Sammons had to run out of his goal to snatch the ball off the toe of Bass. Still looking for their first Combination win of the season, United began to play better football but lacked punch up front. When Coleshill won a corner in off the right, Killey punched clear off the head of Blythe. The keeper was in action again soon after when he had to get there quickly to a shot by Stonebridge. The visitors grabbed the lead in the 37th minute through an Osman header which Killey got one hand to but could not keep out. But Evesham were back on terms three minutes later when Bass scored from the penalty spot.
Half Time: Evesham 1 Coleshill 1


Evesham should have chalked up their first Combination win of the season in a poor match but threw away their chances. Both goals came in the first half, first when Canning got his head to a centre by Povey and although Killey got a hand to the ball he could not keep it out. Evesham's equaliser came three minutes later from the penalty spot, Bass netting after Woodridge was pushed.
