Leamington 1 Coleshill Town 0 - 15/02/03 - Midland
Combination Premier Division
Taken from the Leamington Courier Online
Brakes maintained their lead at the top of the ICIS Midland Combination Premier Division thanks to a fine second-half strike from captain Steve Thompson.
Mid-table Coleshill played some attractive counter-attacking football but the home side dominated and had only themselves to blame for not winning more convincingly. Within the first 20 minutes, leading striker Paul Nicholls had two good chances to score and Thompson saw a goalbound shot ricochet off the legs of Coleshill keeper Danny Smith.
The best opening came in the 34th minute when a Harj Dhesi trademark free kick from outside the penalty area came back into play off the crossbar. Coleshill had a good chance to make Brakes pay for their missed opportunities when, just before half-time, Karl Morris was clear through on goal but he blasted his shot high over the bar into the crowd on the North Bank.
