BAKERS Arms took over at the top of the Swindon & District League Premier Division table as they edged out Ashton Keynes in their top-three battle at Sevenfields Rec.

With previous leaders Tawny Own seeing their match against Swindon Spitfires postponed due to the weather conditions, Arms leaped above them and a point ahead in the standings as a single goal proved enough for victory.

Elsewhere FC Dorcan moved up into fourth spot in the standings as they downed bottom-placed Swindon Centurians Spectrum 2-0 at Cricklade Road.

Both sides missed chances in an end-to-end contest in a goalless first half, but Dorcan got the breakthrough after the break as Joel Ofori tucked away the opening goal.

With Centurians pressing for the equaliser, they were caught on 84 minutes as Dorcan earned a penalty and Scott Drew stepped up to tuck away the second.

A see-saw clash between Lower Stratton and Supermarine DC went the way of the former 4-2 as they remained in mid-table.

Richard Clark opened the scoring for Stratton, but they found themselves behind at half-time as Charlie Archer and Cameron Shrubb both notched to put Marine in front.

A Jamie Stones brace turned the game on its head again and as Marine pressed for parity again, Gavin Kay’s solo effort finally decided it.

Wheatsheaf remained fifth in the table as they saw off Wroughton 5-1.

Mason Lach’s brace put the visitors in control at the Weir Field before Wroughton cut the deficit.

However, Charlie Gillett also notched twice to effectively end home hope and Clint Lomax added the icing on the cake with the fifth.

There was a shock in Division One as Ruby Removals’ serene progress towards the title was halted by Highworth Town Development.

Ruby were chasing a perfect 10 after nine previous victories to start the campaign but found themselves beaten for the first time this season as Adam Bartlett’s back-heeled goal decided the contest in favour of fifth-placed Highworth.

Bottom side Brockhill found themselves on the wrong end of a 6-0 scoreline as they were thumped by Moredon, who moved up to seventh.

Haydon Wick recorded their second win of the season as they defeated mid-table Redhouse 4-2.
