Hinckley AFC 1 - 3 Heather St John
Atletico were knocked out of the League Cup at the first hurdle, but an unfamiliar side, put in a respectful performance against a strong Coleshill side.

A side now in transition, AFC gave starting debuts to the Edwards brothers, Luke and Danny, and Ryan Baldwin, plus making his full debut was Chad Timson from the clubs Under 18s, as well as other AFC Under 18s Matt Jelfs coming on as a substitute. It was clear from the start that Heathers experienced players who joined them in the summer from Coleshill were going to dictate the play of the game. A brace of goals from Simeon Cobourne in the first half hour gave the Saints control of the game, but Steve Hart had already forced Ben Allsop to make some good saves, before eventually getting one past him, scoring a goal back for AFC right on the stroke of half time.

With a little positional re-shuffling at half time, Hinckley were much more competitive and the second half was much more open. Hart especially gave Allsop work to do, but couldn't quite beat the Saints keeper again. As the match drew to a close, and Heather's commanding back line were happy to soak up pressure, Tom Weale broke forward with the ball and with a neat one-two, finished off the move he started.
