Walsall Wood made it into the Midland Combination Premier Division before Coleshill but after finishing bottom two years running they were relegated in the same year as Town got promoted, 1975. It was another couple of years before the two were in the same division, from 1978/79. They then did battle every year until 1992 when Wood moved to the Staffordshire Senior League. During that time Walsall Wood merged with Walsall Sportsco to become Walsall Borough. The name changed back again in time for the two to come together again for the 2006/07 and 2007/08 seasons, again in the Mid Com Prem and then again in the Alliance/MFL for two seasons!

The last time the two sides met was in the Midland Football League, League Cup Final at the Bescot Stadium. Both sides were after a "double" trophy haul with Town lifting the Premier League Runners Up Cup and Walsall crowned champions of Division One. For Coleshill it was game 58 of a very long and hard season and was one game too far as they disappointedly lost the Final 2-1.

Interestingly the two sides have only ever met in a Cup competition twice with Wood winning them both 2-1.
