Team: Mark Hollins, Steve Pollack, Ron Cartwright, Mark Bishop, Barry Tempest, Bob Dyer, Turner, Brad Russell, Kevin Tipton, Nigel Burrows, Barry Canning. Sub Robert Woodward. Confirmed.

Evesham had three players making their debuts and skipper Kevin Deehan back after suspension for the visit of fourth in the table Coleshill. With the wind at their backs Evesham made all the running from the start. Sheehan forced Hollins to make two early saves at the near post from inswinging corners. Then, in the sixth minute, Deehan supplied a perfect cross for Keith Bull to head Evesham into the lead. Evesham keeper Berry was injured as Coleshill made a quick attempt to get back on level terms, but the best chance fell to Evesham in the 17th minute when Thompson interview a poor back pass by Cartwright. McGeehan shot just wide with Hollins struggling to get back to his line. Evesham, keen to move away from the bottom of the table, were proving a handful for title contenders Coleshill. After their shock early lead Evesham continued to push forward and McGeehan missed two good chances to put Evesham further ahead.
