Coleshill Town 1 v 2 Stratford Town

Postby Alan Beckett » Mon Apr 30, 2018 4:01 pm

Saturday 23rd January 1982
Midland Combination Division One
Coleshill Town 1 v 2 Stratford Town
Coleshill: Kevin Tipton.
Stratford: Ballenger, O'Connell.

P20 W10 D4 L6 F30 A26 Pts24 Pos4/22

Team: Mark Hollins, Steve Polack, Ron Cartwright, Mark Bishop, Barry Tempest, Bob Dyer, Brad Russell, Gary Jones, Nigel Burrows, Kevin Tipton, Barry Canning. Sub Keith Shrimpton. Confirmed.

Coleshill put on some early pressure and were unlucky when a bad mistake by Braich gave the ball to Burrows who saw his shot go inches wide of the post. A great through ball from Bishop gave Tipton the first goal of the match when he fought off two defenders to score. A good ball from Cartwright saw Burrows shot go past the far post. From a free kick Stratford Town equalised through Ballenger against the run of play. A fierce shot by Jones was pushed over the bar by Spencer. Coleshill continued to pressurise the visitors defence, but could not capitalise on their chances.

The Sports Argus later wrote:
Keith Shrimpton made his debut for Coleshill Town. He had to wait for 65 minutes before he got on the field, but at the same time he saw his side go 2-1 down after Coleshill had taken an early lead. Stratford hit back with goals coming from Ballinger and O'Connell.
