Coventry Alliance Football League – Division One
Brinklow 1 - FC Polonia 0: A 69th minute strike from Morgan Pulford proved enough for Brinklow to record their first win of the season. The game proved to be a lively encounter which rested on a knife-edge throughout. Pulford came close to opening his account on 22 minutes only to see his shot hit the upright.
A red card saw the visitors go down to ten men two minutes before the interval although this seemed not to affect their performance as they continued to cause Brinklow problems. Martin Murphy in the Brinklow goal produce a fine one-handed save to deny Polonia on 54 minutes. The winner came after Pulford dispossessed a defender on the edge of the visitors' goal area and slipped the ball past the advancing keeper.
