CRICKLADE Town recorded a second 6-0 triumph in seven days as they maintained their four-point advantage at the top of the Wiltshire League Premier Division on Saturday.

The Leisure Centre side, who had thrashed Marlborough Town away from home by a half dozen the previous weekend, repeated the trick against Pewsey Vale Development on home turf while again maintaining a clean sheet at the other end.

Matty Bennett did the bulk of the damage for the victors, scoring four times while top scorer Devan Bryan also notched again and Reece Gilliver added the other.

Free-scoring Melksham Town Reserves moved into joint second spot with Kintbury Rangers as they took their remarkable goal tally for the campaign to date to 44 from just nine games.

Bassett Bulldogs were the victims this time, shipping 12 without reply as Jake Sainsbury and Dan Sibley both helped themselves to hat-tricks.

Leading scorer Callum Demkiv and Shaun Benison both added doubles, while Tom Jones and Will Stead were also on target.

Kintbury are third on goal difference after a 4-1 victory against Royal Wootton Bassett Development, Luke Johnson, Shaun Thorp, Liam Thorne and Fabio Pinto finding the net, while Ryan Withers was Bassett’s marksman.

Wroughton responded to the previous week’s defeat by Melksham as they put Shrewton United to the sword 3-0.

Shane Hibbert scored twice with Tom Dingle adding the other for the reigning champions who are fourth.

Westbury United Reserves are two points behind them in fifth after being held to a 2-2 draw at Ludgershall Sports despite goals from Ferris Lamrabet and Conner Mackay.

Purton’s quiet improvement continued as they registered a third consecutive clean sheet with a 1-0 win at home to Corsham Town Reserves, Chris Avery scoring the only goal of the game.

One goal was also all that was required for Devizes Town Reserves, who edged Malmesbury Victoria Development to make it four matches without defeat.

Honours were even in Calne as Bremhill and Trowbridge Town shared four goals.

Arnold N’Cube and Edidiong Essien netted for the home side but they were pegged back as Craig Sheppard and Natti Morgan found the net for the Bees, who also missed a penalty.
