Shaw and Penrose in Princes Strike
Two goals in two minutes midway through the second half from Albert Shaw and Stuart Penrose gave revitalised Princes End the points against a Coleshill side who have scored only once in the last five outings. Coleshill began brightly and nearly opened their account in the 25th minute when Paul Jones had a 20 yard shot well saved by the diving Mick Dyas following good work by Peter Willis. Princes End went in front after 57 minutes when David Edwards crossed for Shaw to head home from close range. Within two minutes Princes End added a second when Mitch Carr played the ball into the path of Penrose who fired a low shot into the corner of the net from 15 yards.

COLESHILL CHRONICLE WROTE
3-2 Up, Town Lose As Rangers Score Three Goals In The Last Eight Minutes
Three goals in the last eight minutes put paid to Coleshill Town’s hopes of shocking reigning league champions Sherwood Rangers on Saturday. At the time they lead 3-2 after a fighting recovery from 2-0 down in the first ten minutes but an injury to goal-keeper Cooper helped the rangers to hammer home three in a late fling. Sherwood’s first goal bore the suspicion of off-side as outside right Burke swooped in to give Cooper no chance. Minutes later the same player moved onto a loose ball to hammer it home. These set backs helped Coleshill to get their forwards going in retaliation and with two minutes to go before the interval Jimmy Henry notched a reply. The second half was only 15 minutes old when the Town shot the equaliser. A spooned pass from Tony Pugh was guided home by Roy Middleton. Sherwood were now looking a jaded outfit and where set back further when Whitehouse directed a perfect ball to Ian Ewan who made no mistake with the finishing blow. The Town were now moving in grand style but when a shot from Middleton stuck in the mud inches from the line to be cleared by a covering Sherwood defender, Coleshill’s black patch set in. Sherwood outside left Smith netted twice with a single from Burke to complete his hat-trick and Coleshill went down 5-3.

FROM THE COLESHILL CHRONICLE ARCHIVES
Warwickshire And The War
Warwickshire’s Heavy Loss
A Mined Trench
The Daily Chronicle special correspondent in North-East France illustrates the bitterness of the Germans with a painful incident. He says “A section of the Warwickshire’s, by a desperate rush, gained the advanced German trench, only to find it evacuated. Next moment a fearful explosion rent the air and a platoon of our men were thrown in all directions. The trench had been mined, with sad results to that part of the Warwickshire Regiment”.
LATEST WAR NEWS
Creeping Along The Coast
Allies Established At St George’s
The news from the west front is that along the coast from Nieuport the progress of the Allies continues steadily. Having lost the hamlet of St George’s through what they describe as a “surprise attack” the Germans have subjected the place to a violent bombardment, despite which the defenders have established themselves on a defensive basis.
THIS WEEK will also be in every home game programme.
