Carlton vs Coleshill Town

A strong start from Coleshill Town was rewarded after 19 minutes. Josh Willis’s through ball put Theo Rowe one on one with the keeper and he calmly placed the ball into the keeper’s bottom left hand corner.

Coleshill nearly doubled their lead when a mix up in the Carlton defence left George Washbourne through on goal, but he could only stab his shot wide of the post.

After 39 minutes, Carlton were level. Alex Howes through ball slipped through Alex Hardwick, down the Carlton right and his powerful shot hit the roof of the net.

Carllton quickly turned the game around on 43 minutes, when a brilliant cross by Niall Davie, down Carlton’s right side, was met by Hardwick and his thunderous header beat the keeper to give Carlton a 2-1 lead.

Carlton then added a third just before half time. Greg Tempest’s corner was met at the back post by Khyle Sargent,whose header looped over the keeper and extended Carlton’slead.

Coleshill tried to find a way back into the game, when Rowe combined easily with Zaquib Hussain down Coleshill’s left, however Rowe’s shot from the edge of the 18-yard box was well saved by Felix Annan.

Carlton added a fourth after 63 minutes, when Greg Tempest’s free kick from 25 yards out, was met at the back post by Lewis Durow, who volleyed the ball home.

Carlton rounded the game off with a quick break started by Howes, who drove at the defence and fed Romello Nangle. The Forward still had work to do, and his touch created space for him to fire pass the keeper into the bottom left corner, making the score 5-1 at 79 minutes. The goal rounded off a brilliant display from the Millers and puts them into the next round of the FA Trophy.
