Saturday 20th December 1980
Midland Combination Division 1
Coleshill Town 1 v 2 Smethwick Highfield (Later became Sandwell Borough)
Scorer: Lamb.


P16 W1 D3 L12 F12 A39 Pts5 Pos20/20


Team: Lamb.


SUNDAY MERCURY WROTE
Smethwick achieved manager Tony Willetts 20 point target by Chrismas with this win. Their opening goal came from Faulkner in the 16th minute and it was his first of the season. Coleshill then enjoyed a spell when they were well on top of the opposition and their equaliser in the 65th minute from Lamb came as no surprise. With ten minutes remaining for play Lyay pulled the game out of the fire and fooled Smethwick with a goal from nearly 30 yards when he fired on the turn with the Coleshill defenders expecting him to lay the ball off to his colleague Bromley.
