FC WALCOT started their Swindon Sunday League season in style as they thumped Swiss Chalet 22-1 away from home in Division One.

Dev Bryan and Levi Cox both scored four times, while Sam Ockwell, Lee Haywood, Jason Milhench and Kieron Jennings got two each.

Alex Hammond, Dean Hughes, Dennis Sorrentti and Thomas Price also got their names on the scoresheet to complete the rout, which included two own goals.

Walcot manager Lee White admitted he was pleased with the performance and claimed his side had made an early statement to the rest of the league.

“We got off to a good start and there was a good share of goals around the team as well, it was brilliant,” he said.

“I didn’t expect it to be high scoring but we got into a rhythm early on and the goals just kept coming really, it was ideal for me.

“We wanted to make a statement this year, last season we had a bit of a bad start so this year everyone is bang up for it, we mean business this year.”
