Town Fall To Late Strike

Coleshill only had themselves to blame after allowing relegation threatened Loughborough off the hook on Saturday. Coleshill should have had the game wrapped up in the first half but wasted several good opportunities. Town went behind early in the game but took the lead on 22 minutes with efforts from leading scorer Tim Hilton and a candidate for goal of the season from Paul Burns. At this stage there seemed to be only one outcome, more goals for the visitors, but Athletic came out fighting in the second period and deservedly too all three points. The winner came while Town were pushing for all three points in the last five minutes to ensure Athletics' survival.
