LAST year’s Wiltshire League champions Wroughton stretched their unbeaten run to six games following a 6-2 win over Pewsey Vale Development.

Assistant manager Paul Bowden reckons the Weir Field club have a stronger squad than last year after recording their sixth win of the campaign.

New additions Glenn Armstrong and Dave Coleman both got on the scoresheet, the former scoring two, as Shane Hibbert, Chris Flanagan and Riegan Cook also notched.

Bowden believes the score could have been more had Mark Love’s side been more prolific.

“It was comfortable, we dominated the game from start to finish,” he said “I thought we should have scored more but I’m happy with the result. We have played eight games, lost one and drawn one. They were both midweek games where we struggled to get a side.

“On Saturdays we should be fine. We have a stronger squad this year. Glenn Armstrong wasn’t playing last year and we signed Dave Coleman from Royal Wootton Bassett.

“We are in a stronger position than we were last year, but the pressure is going to be there from the beginning.

“I think the league is going to be stronger. It will be a lot tighter than last year. We have a good mix in the group and the players seem eager.”

Only goal difference separates Wroughton with Cricklade Town, who are the early pace-setters in the Premier Division.

Both teams have 19 points, as Cricklade added three more this weekend with a 5-2 win at home to Bassett Bulldogs.

Third-placed Kintbury Rangers kept up their recent form as Westbury United Reserves proved no match for the visitors, who claimed a 6-2 win.

Trowbridge Town were able to undo their recent dip in form with a 3-1 home win at the expense of Marlborough Town, for their first win in three.

Malmesbury Victoria Development failed to build on last week’s maiden win, as they fell well short against Shrewton who ran out as 5-1 winners.

Bremhill United will have to wait another week for a win as they lost 3-2 at home to Royal Wootton Bassett Development, they’re the only side yet to register a league win.

Newcomers Purton are struggling to get to grips with their new surroundings, as they were beaten by hosts Ludgershall Sports 3-2.
