2017/18: Bromsgrove Sporting (Midland Football League Premier Division)

Ten days ago Coventry Sphinx's start to the 2017/18 season seemed to explode into life. The 1-0 scoreline in our defeat against Shepshed Dynamo here at Sphinx Drive doesn't begin to tell the story of one of the most bizarre halves of football I've seen in a while.

2017/18: Shepshed Dynamo (Midland Football League Premier Division)

There's no getting away from the fact that it was a disappointing start to the season for Coventry Sphinx. After a positive summer, seeing the team knocked out of the FA Cup at the first opportunity was difficult to swallow. With important players missing in key positions, I'd been expecting a tricky afternoon. We got that and more.

2017/18: Boldmere St Michael's (FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round)

For all the bluster at the elite levels of the game, the FA Cup is still special to the rest of us. There's no better way to start the season than with a cup tie, and we open ours with today's visit from Boldmere St Michael's and a chance to translate the progress of the last twelve months into a rather better outcome than we managed at this stage last year.
