SPORTS ARGUS WROTE
Racing Club, back home after seven successive away matches, powered into a convincing half time lead at Hampton Road. The man who did the damage against bottom club Coleshill was Steve Edgington who took his tally to ten in just eight games with another two goal haul. The visitors had no answer to Racing's fire power and with a little more luck Edgington could easily have grabbed a hat-trick. He shot wide twice with only the keeper to beat and then headed into the side-netting from a Chris Chinn cross. It came as no surprise that Racing finally broke the deadlock after 25 minutes when keeper Sammons could only push a Malcolm Boulton shot to the path of Edgington who made no mistake. Boulton almost grabbed a second after neat move from Cliff Morby but this time keeper Sammons pulled off a spectacular diving save. Racing increased their lead after 32 minutes when Morby crossed on the left and Alan Bryan headed down for Edgington to snap home from close range. Bryan then had a shot cleared off the line by defender Allen and Racing finished the half in devastating style.
Half Time: Racing Club 2 Coleshill 0

SUNDAY MERCURY WROTE
Steve Leads Racing On Seven Goal Romp

After seven successive away matches, Racing celebrated their Hampton Road homecoming in spectacular style. They went seven up against bottom of the table Coleshill with Striker Steve Edgington leading the way. He found the net five times to make it 13 goals in eight games since joining the club. Unhappy Coleshill had no answer to Racing’s firepower with big striker Alan Bryan spearheading the one-way assault. Edgington fires Racing into a two goal lead at half time after good work by Malcolm Boulton and Bryan. He added another two shortly after the interval before Steve Cooper blasted in a fifth. Substitute Clive Coleman made it six of the best, with that man Edgington having the final say when he hammered home number seven.
