SHRIVENHAM boss Gareth Davies felt his team should have hit double figures this weekend after thumping Hellenic League Division One West basement boys Tytherington Rocks 7-0 on the road.

The visitors' scorers included Jamie Prictor, with a double, new signing MaCauley Dodson, Luke Cordery, Sam Ockwell, Lewis Petrie and Nathan Blackford.

After a month without a competitive fixture due to postponements, Davies said it was good to finally get his players out on the pitch again.

“Saturday could have been a cricket score. It is one of those difficult games where even though they are bottom of the league, you still have to collect three points,” said Davies.

“I felt a bit sorry for them, to be fair. They tried but we wanted three points and that is what we got, so we are happy.

“We needed a game after not playing for a month. We were a bit rusty in places but it’s not a bad one to come into as it gave us a bit of confidence.

“Before the game we said we’d like to score an early goal. That would get their heads down and two minutes in, we got the first one.

“We just did things right. There were times where we could have done a bit more but we did what we needed to do.

“At half-time the game was pretty much over as a contest and we just told the lads to be professional in the second half as you could see they were a little bit bored.

“It was a weird game.”

Elsewhere, New College suffered their 20th defeat of the season, losing 4-0 to Woodstock Town over the weekend.

In the Premier Division, Royal Wootton Bassett Town were unable to stop the rot as they fell to a disappointing 2-0 defeat to bottom-of-the-table Burnham.

Matty Sinclair gave Burnham the lead early in the second half and Calvin Morgan wrapped up the win with a late strike.

Conor Lynch struck twice for Jody Bevan’s Fairford Town as they shared a 2-2 draw at home to Abingdon United.

Elsewhere, Premier Division leaders Highworth Town were due to be involved in Supplementary Cup action away to Shortwood United Reserves but they had their game cancelled due to a frozen pitch.
