Coleshill Chronicle Wrote: This week I find Coleshill Town swimming in troubled waters, the famed Green & White of yesteryear having become frayed and faded. Their long serving secretary Bernard Knight has seen his team carry off most of the honours this game has to offer and when I spoke to him after his teams heavy 6-2 defeat at the hands of South Yardley his faith in his team remains unmoved. “The ball is not running for us and we are not so powerful” he commented “but one day we will spring a surprise.” If Bernard’s never say die spirit can find its way through to his players then the gloom should be short lived. H.R. Masters. The man who was mainly responsible for Town’s heavy defeat was Ray Holmes the Yardley leader who scored five, much to the disgust of Billy Holmes the visitors centre half. Billy could find no answer to Ray’s quest for goals and Gary Cooper had an unhappy afternoon so much so that he is given a rest for the Charity Cup clash with Hurley.
