Meir KA's top of the table clash with Coleshill Town ended 1-1 when a late, late penalty from Mark Charnley rescued a point for the visitors. There were few chances in a tight first hour but Alan Hope got the breakthrough for Meir in the 80th minute.

P12 W7 D4 L1 F30 A13 Pts25 Pos2/21

Team: Mark Charnley. (Confirmed) Squad taken from Programme: Craig Glover GK, Justin Wiseman, Craig Whitmore, Pat Dunworth, Wayne Fisher, Andy Burham, Andy Taylor, Des Seivwright, Mark Charnley, Lee Lavery, Jason Harris, Paul Mountney, Dave Travis, Rob Sweeney, Loz Cairns.

Premier pacesetters Coleshill Town have discovered the price of success - with five of their players on the wanted list of other clubs. Manager Martin Sockett believes he has a squad capable of claiming the title - and such has been their form that they have attracted a host of seven day approaches. Bedworth United have followed Stratford Town in targeting Ricky Smith, while Evesham United have declared their interest in Des Seivwright. David Lloyd FC were after Gary Smith and Massey Ferguson were tracking Neil Frost, while Tividale have enquired about striker Paul Mountney. Ironically, the injuries which meant Sockett having to re-shuffle his team have also left three of those wanted players on the casualty list, rather than the exit list. Ricky Smith is struggling with a knee injury, while namesake Gary faces a lengthy lay off after rupturing his ankle ligaments. Frost too could be out up until Christmas because of a hamstring problem. Sockett, whose side lost 1-0 at home to title challengers Worcester Athletico last time out, has been left with eight players on the sidelines. But he has boosted his Pack Meadow squad with the arrival of Gary Hardwick.
