WILTSHIRE LEAGUE: Supermarine Sports see off Trowbridge
SUPERMARINE Sports Club beat former Hellenic League side Trowbridge on Saturday, despite turning up at Woodmarsh with only 11 players.
The South Marston side triumphed 2-1 over the Bees in the Wiltshire League Premier Division to continue their good start to the season.
Both goals were scored by former Highworth striker Talif Hamza, who struck twice within the space of a few minutes in the first half.
Trowbridge scored from a free kick not long after the restart and although the hosts piled the pressure on in the closing stages, they could not find an equaliser.
Supermarine, formerly known as Madames, won promotion to the Premier Division last season and boss Pete Milhench feels they have proved their worth at that standard.
“Before the game Trowbridge were taking the mickey out of us because we only had 11 players,” he said.
“They thought we were a little club that shouldn’t have been in their league.
“We aren’t a big club, we’re just a bunch of lads that want to play football and we turned up and played our game.
“This Saturday we proved we’re not in the league just to make up the numbers.”
Elsewhere in the division, braces from Tom Kopinski and Jeremy Hope gave Blyskawica a 4-3 win over Corsham reserves.
Wroughton were thumped 7-1 by visitors Ludgershall while Marlborough drew 1-1 at Devizes reserves.
Purton reserves picked up their first point of the season as they shared a 2-2 draw with Chippenham Youth.
Adam Devine and an own goal allowed Tony Webb’s men to get off the mark.
Boss Webb said: “We’re a completely new team and it’s been a tough few weeks for us.
“We’ve been completely rebuilding the side and results have not reflected how hard people are working.
“It’s about developing the youth players and getting them through the system now.”
In Division One, Wootton Bassett Dev kept up their 100 per cent record with a 7-3 demolition of Sarum Youth Seniors.
Intel drew level on points with Malmesbury reserves after beating their rivals 2-1.
Blunsdon were hammered 6-1 by Melksham reserves while Wroughton reserves were sunk 3-1 at Marlborough reserves.
