Hemsley Sews It Up For Bridgnorth

Bridgnorth made heavy weather of beating Coleshill. They had sufficient chances in the opening 20 minutes to have sewn up the match but carelessly wasted the opportunities. It was not until the last fifteen minutes that player-manager Cutling Hemsley put his seal on the game to earn both points with two goals. In the first half Vic Francis and Shelley both had good openings for Bridgnorth but were either foiled by goalkeeper Sammons or their own inept finishing. Canning went through on one occasion for Coleshill and was brought crashing down but that penalty appeal was ignored. Bridgnorth were more successful in the 76th minute when Shelley was brought down from behind and Hemsley converted his spot kick. Three minutes later Hemsley finished off some good work by Francis and Shelley for the second goal.
