ATHLETICO Marlborough produced the surprise result of the weekend as they inflicted a defeat on Highworth Town Sunday, ending their unbeaten start to the season in Swindon Sunday League Division Two.

The victory came after Jason Hull and Tom Stevens both registered twice, while George Kimber and Connor Marsden also found the back of the net in the 6-1 triumph against the team who started the day at the top of the table.

“It was fantastic to get the win against them, especially with the way in which we done it,” said Marlborough manager Ryan Perry.

“We knew it was going to be a hard game going by previous matches against them and the run they were on.

“But we prepared ourselves well and played some of the best football we’ve played since starting the team two seasons ago.”

Elsewhere in the division, Purton Redhouse moved to the top of the table as they picked up their fifth win of the season with a 6-3 success over Wanborough.

Eldene cemented their place in third as they kept up their perfect start to the season with a fourth win of the campaign when beating Croft Junior 5-2.

Royal Wootton Bassett Town picked up their second high-scoring win as they beat Save on Tyres Athletic 9-0, having defeated Stratton Saints 11-0 a week earlier.

Bottom of the table Rudis, who are yet to put a point on the board, came close to ending their poor start to the season as they narrowly lost out 5-4 to Nationwide.

Greyhound were the standout performers in Division One as they thumped AFC Freshbrook 15-1 at home.

Pacesetters Cleeve Tech are one point clear at the top with 13, courtesy of a narrow 2-1 triumph over the visiting Swiss Chalet.

The only other game in the top flight was between Rodbourne Real and AFC Gas and they shared the spoils in a six-goal thriller.

There was one league fixture in Division Three, in which Mannington won 7-4 away to Smart Movers as the rest of the teams played in the Bunny Uzzell Shield.

Northern Lights and Cricklade Park Rangers were both 4-3 winners against Sevenfield United and The Abbey Mead respectively.

Openwork United were beaten 3-0 at Chiseldon Sunday, while hosts Charles Geddes won 9-3 to Gorsehill Borough and PSV Swindon were 10-1 victors at Swindon Rovers.
