Solihull Borough spent most of this hard fought Midland Combination game with their backs to the wall and ended disappointed and the stronger and better organised Coleshill side cracked a stubborn defence in the final minutes. As so happens in football, Coleshill succeeded following the only period in 90 minutes when Borough were able to sustain a long period of attack. Borough could quite easily have gone ahead in this period when goalkeeper Hemmings was forced into two successive saves from new player, manager Ron Mason, who in a hectic period saw a goal bound effort kicked off the line by a desperate defender. Joey Burnett went close with a clever volley while Leroy Memans caused chaos with some tricky runs into the Coleshill penalty area. Then suddenly, a defence that had looked impenetrable melted away leaving Gary Jones with only Borough keeper Evans to beat and the trap was sprung. Borough reacted in typical fashion and pushed forward with determination but gaps were left in defence and Barry Canning, a late substitute, exploited this brilliantly to score a killer second goal for the visitors.
