Scrivens On The Mark To Sink Poor Coleshill
A Sriven hat-trick destroyed Coleshill as the Police ran riot. Scriven opened their account after good work between Dorrian and Grimshaw created the opening for him. A solo effort from Keen put the home side well in command as they continued to press. Coleshill keeper Sammons did well to thwart the busy Dorrian with a reflex save but could do nothing about a spectacular overhead kick from Brown which flew in. Dorrian had a hand in the Police's fourth goal, Scriven burst through onto his pinpoint cross with the Coleshill defence static. Scriven completed his hat-trick before the break from the penalty spot after Keen was brought down on another ambitious run. Keen scored his second after the interval, blasting home a free kick.

Police Skate To Success
Coleshill Town were hit by a five goal blitz as West Midlands Police skated over an icy ground to destroy the visitors defence with accurate finishing. Scriven began the spree for Police in the 15th minute, following good work by Dorrian and Grimshaw. Coleshill's keeper Sammons was left stranded shortly afterwards as Keen ran onto a long through ball and hit a hard, low shot into the corner of the net. Sammons could only punch the ball away from another Police sortie and Brown netted goal number three with an opportunist overhead kick. Coleshill's rearguard was again exposed allowing Scriven to head home a cross from Dorrian. Poor Coleshill were really struggling at this stage and when they conceded a penalty for a foul on Keen there was Scriven, eager to complete his hat-trick, with a well struck spot kick. There was no respite for Coleshill at the start of the second half when from a free kick Keen blasted past a wall of defenders.
