Coleshill had never played Shepshed Dynamo before 2013/14 but Dynamo only formed in 1994 and before that the football club was known as Shepshed Charterhouse or Shepshed Albion! The club encountered financial difficulties in 1994 and reformed under the new name in recognition of the help provided by local side Loughborough Dynamo.

Coleshill Town and Shepshed Albion were in the same league, the Midland Combination Premier, for one season only, 1993/94! My records for that particular season are vague! I have the results but little else. Town won the game at Pack Meadow 3-0 and Albion won the reverse fixture 3-1. The Manager that year was Bob Nimmons and during that time Coleshill played their 1000th game in the Midland Combination. Some names that played that year included: Jimmy Stafford, Colin Cooke, Jamie Harden, Steve Whipps, Errol Black, Neil Hughes and Marcus Macdonald.

The two sides met again in 2013/14 in the Midland Alliance. Shepshed had been in the Alliance before, in fact they were founder members in their first year as Dynamo and won the title the following year to gain promotion to the Southern League. They remained at Level 4 for sixteen years, although they were moved to the Northern League, before relegation to the United Counties League in 2019/20 but returned to the Northern League in 2021/22 where the sides have met for the last three seasons.

Both sides are struggling this term. Coleshill currently lying in 14th place with 28 points from 27 games, and Dynamo just one place, and two points below with 26 points, but Two games in hand.
