The Coleshill 1st XI have slipped to the bottom of Division 1, following defeat at Pinkneys Green at the weekend.
With 5 matches left to play, Coleshill are 5 points adrift of Denham, and 40 points behind Littlewick Green – but with a game in hand over both.
Another reason for optimism is that – owing to the quirks of the fixture list – Coleshill are at home for all their remaining matches.
Here’s hoping home comforts can spur the team onto the great escape. That starts this Saturday as they take on 4th-placed Chalfont St Giles.
