Coleshill remain focused as Bromsgrove visit in the FA cup
Writes the Coleshill Herald


COLESHILL Town go in search of more cup glory this Saturday as they host Bromsgrove Sporting in the preliminary round of the FA Cup.

The Colemen, from the Midland Premier, secured a stunning 10-0 win over Division One outfit Nuneaton Griff in the previous round of the world-renowned competition.

Now they face another Division One side but chairman Paul Billing is taking nothing for granted against Bromsgrove.

"It will be a tough game for us," said Billing. "On paper, people will expect us to progress but we need to make sure that we do a professional job.


"To be fair, with Paul Casey as our manager, there's no way that the players will be anything but professional.

"He will have them well prepared and hopefully we can get the right result and keep the cup run going.

"There should be a decent crowd as Bromsgrove will bring a fair few fans with them. I think they will come and have a go so I am excited about what should be a good game this weekend."

Coleshill endured a mixed Bank Holiday weekend, losing 2-0 to Lye Town on Saturday before thrashing Boldmere St Michaels 3-0 on Monday.

The results leave Coleshill second in the table, three points behind leaders Basford United.

"Lye came and did a really good job on us on Saturday," said Billing. "They competed very hard and they had a plan which worked very well.

"We had plenty of chances to win the game and should have been out of sight in the first half.

"Their keeper made some stunning saves and he was a key factor for them.

"They then netted from long range, with the effort taking a deflection and then caught us on the break for the second.

"It was good to bounce back against Boldmere.

"It was a really even first half but we got the opening goal just before the break and there was only one side in it from that point on to be honest," he added.
