WILTSHIRE LEAGUE: Trueman comes out of retirement in Blyskawica win
6:00am Tuesday 17th September 2013 in Sport
BOSS Phil Trueman came out of playing retirement as Blyskawica secured a third successive win in beating Ludgershall Sports 2-1, writes LEE CLARK.
The home side took the lead when Jeremy Hope met an Ashley Chapman cross 15 minutes into the first half, before Mason Strong equalised.
Ludgershall were harshly denied a penalty moments later and shortly after the break, Chris Mills slid in to restore Blyskawica’s one-goal advantage.
Despite being down to 10 men due to injury, Blyskawica held out under heavy pressure in the final half hour.
Southbrook lost ground on their rivals as they were held to a 1-1 draw by visitors Devizes reserves.
The home side took the lead on the stroke of half time through Reece Gilliver, but five minutes into the second period, Devizes capitalised on a weak back pass to level.
Supermarine Sports Club kept the pressure on league leaders Shrewton with a solid 2-0 victory at Chippenham Youth.
In a physical contest, Jason Milhench put Supermarine in front from 18 yards, before Talif Hamza doubled their advantage with around 20 minutes remaining.
The victory could have been more comprehensive, had Dean Hughes not squandered numerous chances for the South Marston club.
Purton reserves suffered yet another defeat away at Marlborough, with a 2-0 loss leaving them at the basement of the Premier Division.
Elsewhere, Wroughton were hammered 8-1 by Shrewton and Trowbridge maintained their strong start with a comfortable 4-0 victory at Vale of Pewsey.
A brace for Otis Young put the Bees in the driving seat before Ian Groves and Tarik Yachou rounded off an impressive victory.
In Division One, Blunsdon’s poor start to the season shows no sign of stopping after they slumped to a 4-0 loss at home to Marlborough reserves.
Intel continued their good form with a 5-0 thrashing of Wroughton reserves, keeping them in the top half of the table.
Wootton Bassett Dev came out victorious in a nine-goal thriller at early pace-setters Melksham.
Braces from Dennis King, Max Kitchin and Lewis Petrie gave Bassett a 6-3 victory and moved them level on points with the league leaders.
