WILTSHIRE LEAGUE: Bassett romp home against Marlborough
6:00am Tuesday 15th October 2013 in Sport
THERE was very little Wiltshire League action at the weekend due to the involvement of teams in the Wiltshire Senior Cup, but five fixtures did take place.
Wootton Bassett Dev kept up their title challenge in Division One with a 6-0 home victory over Marlborough reserves.
The experienced Dennis King bagged four goals and Jake Kitchin and Lewis Taylor also registered.
Bassett boss Dave Terry said: “It’s tough because everyone wants to take a point off us or beat us because of where we are in the league.
“We had to be patient on Saturday when moving the ball from the midfielders to the forwards, but four of our efforts were good goals inside the box.
“It wasn’t as easy as the scoreline suggested but it was a good all-round performance from the lads.
“We’re confident we can do well this season but it’s early days and there’s a long way to go.”
Elsewhere in the division, Intel slipped further off the pace at the top with a 1-0 defeat to league leaders Melksham reserves.
In the Premier Division, Purton reserves’ miserable campaign continued as they were sunk 2-0 at Corsham reserves.
