SWISS Chalet opened their account in the Swindon Sunday League at the ninth time of asking at the weekend, registering a 6-1 win at AFC Freshbrook in Division One.

Craig Spreadborough’s side tasted victory in the Knockout Cup back in November but had previously gone pointless over their opening eight league games.

Although they remain at the foot off the table despite this success, it has lifted them up to within one point of Freshbrook above them.

Aaron Williams led the charge for Chalet with a hat-trick, Olly Armstrong chipped in with two and the rout was completed by Chris Reade.

Manager Spreadborough was thrilled to see his side break their duck and has now set his sights on climbing off the foot of the table.

“It is a bit of a relief, to be honest, although I do think it has been coming for us,” said Spreadborough.

“We have had a bit of reliability issue this season but that seems to be easing now and we’re starting to get a settled team together.

“I can’t thank the core group of players enough, really, they haven’t let their heads drop and have kept plugging away.

“It was a deserved win at the weekend and I think the players deserved it for the efforts they have put in this season.

“Hopefully we can kick on from here. We know we can’t compete with the top teams but we just want to try to finish the season as high up in the table as we can.”

At the other end of the table, Greyhound maintained their 100 per cent league record with a seventh successive victory after thrashing Jovial Monk an astonishing 16-0 at home.

Penhill United actually lead the way at the top, having played two games more than Greyhound, and kept their three-point cushion with a 7-1 win at home to Cleeve Tech.

FC Walcot climbed up to third after returning from Rodbourne Real with a 4-1 victory.

Division Two leaders Royal Wootton Bassett Town Sunday scored a perfect 10 goals as they maintained their slender one-point advantage at the top of the table.

Danny Groom’s troops easily swept aside bottom side Swindon Athletic on the road, with the basement boys at least managing to net one consolation.

Eldene are the side keeping Bassett honest at the summit, although they found life much tougher than the pace-setters and only edged out third-placed Highworth Town Sunday 3-2 at home.

Stratton Saints moved out of the bottom two thanks to a 7-2 success away at Save on Tyres Athletic, while Athletico Marlborough recorded a 3-1 home win over Croft Junior.

PSV Swindon were the only one of the 10 Division Three teams in action to keep a clean sheet as they triumphed 2-0 away at The Abbey Mead.

Unbeaten leaders AFC Mannington were without a game this weekend, which allowed second-placed Cricklade Park Rangers to trim the gap to eight points with a 6-3 win away at Smart Movers.

A 6-1 victory on the road at bottom side Sevenfields United kept Gorsehill Borough one point further back in third.

Chiseldon Sunday made it four away wins from the five fixtures, beating Paxton House United 7-2, with Northern Lights the only side to taste success at home with a 5-3 defeat of Openwork United.
