First published in Sport

FAIRFORD are through to the next round of the Hellenic League's Floodlit Cup after thumping local rivals Shrivenham 6-2 at soggy Cinder Lane.

Paul Sanders had given Shrivvy an early lead but after that the high-flying Division One West outfit took control against their top flight counterparts, helped in large part by three own goals.

Callum Parsons, Shannon Pocock and Henry Trass made up the half dozen with Warren Fuller giving Shrivenham just a glimmer of hope when he temporarily reduced arrears to 3-2 in the second half.

Chippenham's Southern Premier recovery continued with an impressive 3-0 win over Totton at Hardenhuish Park.

Tom Knighton's close-range double either side of the break put the Bluebirds in control and Lee Phillips' header on 65 minutes sealed the points and lifted Nathan Rudge's team into ninth in the table.

Cirencester Town's Gloucestershire Challenge Trophy tie with Cheltenham Town was called off due to a waterlogged pitch.
