Coleshill players are urged to make history in FA Vase
Writes the Coleshill Herald

MANAGER Paul Casey takes his Coleshill Town squad to Leicestershire in the FA Vase this Saturday with the message: 'Let's make history'.

Coleshill travel to East Midlands Counties League side Holwell Sports in the second round of the national competition knowing that a win will take the club further than they have ever been before.

Casey said: "That's what I will be reminding the players – that they can make history.

"Coleshill has never got to the last 32 of the FA Vase and we have a chance to achieve that.

"This set of players could be a group that people involved in the club talk about and remember for many years to come.

"There's no greater incentive than that.

"All we need to do now is go out onto that pitch on Saturday afternoon, enjoy the occasion, do ourselves justice and get a positive result.

"There's no reason why we can't either.

"Holwell are a good side but so are we. We have had a great campaign so far.

"We have youth and experience in our camp and we have shown in the Vase that we can beat anyone on our day.

"We have gone away to the likes of Malvern, Nuneaton and Long Eaton United and won already.

"It's been a tough road for us to get this far and I am not ready for the journey to end yet.

"It will be hard. They are strong at home and will probably have around 200 fans getting at us.

"But we will go out and give it our all on the day. We are treating this as a cup final and we are really excited about the game in front of us."

Coleshill go into the cup tie on the back of a 3-1 victory over Alvechurch in the Midland Alliance.

The win saw them leap-frog their opponents and move up to seventh in the table.

"It was a great win against Alvechurch," said Casey. "We played a lot of good football and dominated the game. We could have scored more.

"We didn't pick up any new injuries either and it was the first time this season that we have beaten a side above us in the Alliance.

"So it's all positive from our point of view and we take a lot from that game into the FA Vase clash.

"Hopefully we can build on that win now and celebrate a famous cup success this weekend."

Casey has a full strength squad to choose from apart from the cup-tied Dan Holgate and Jazz Luckie.
