Coleshill Town gave Solihull Borough an own goal start early in the game but after 60 minutes they got an equaliser and shared the points.

Drab Draw

Former Sutton Town manager Brian Kenning made his debut for Solihull Borough against relegation threatened Coleshill and he must have wondered what he had let himself in for. Borough opened their account as early as the first minute when a free kick by Kenning was helped into the net by a Coleshill defender. Kenning was booked early on but eased himself through the game showing some nice touches. Coleshill drew level just after half time when a shot from O'Loughlin took a deflection.

Newcomer Ryan Boosts Coleshill

Coleshill gained a creditable 1-1 draw at Home to Solihull Borough last Saturday. Shaun Tymon was recalled to the Coleshill team and he celebrated with a fine performance helping his side to a deserved point. The long grass at Pack Meadow did not help Coleshill's cause and they found themselves trailing at half time to an own goal netted by Johnny Blythe Keeper Tony Sammons excelled with a number of smart saves as Borough searched to increase their lead but Coleshill hit back strongly and Ryan scored against his former club to level matters. Steve Lamb worked tirelessly up front for Coleshill, who were also well served by O'Loughlin.
