LOUIS O’Shea scored a hat-trick to help his AFC Mannington team win the game of the day involving Swindon Sunday League sides at the weekend.

In their Wiltshire Sunday Cup first-round clash against Nationwide, Mannington won 7-4 to make smooth progress in the county competition.

O’Shea’s trio was added to by single efforts from Jordan Lea, Tommy Ouldridge, Callum Wilkinson and Euan Turner.

Andrew Goodchild scored twice for Nationwide, while Thomas Holtham and Ben Langley added to the visitors’ tally.

Meanwhile, Atletico Marlborough are also through to the next round after beating Swindon Rovers 7-3.

Gorsehill Borough saw off Ridgeway Rovers 7-2, while Rudis needed extra-time to defeat York Athletic and book their place in the second round.

Following a 4-4 draw at the end of 90 minutes, Rudis struck twice in the extra half-hour to claim a thrilling victory against the Salisbury side.

Highworth Town Sunday’s trip down to the southern tip of the county was a wasted one after they lost 4-0 away to West Harnham.

Woodland Edge’s away trip to Bromham also ended in disappointment after a narrow 4-3 loss.

But another Swindon side to make it through in the county cup was Croft Junior.

They beat Chippenham League outfit FC North Wiltshire 2-0, while PSV Swindon joined them after downing Durrington 2-1 away from home.

It was not such good news for Swindon Saracens and Smartmovers, however.

Saracens lost 4-1 away to Lion & Fiddle, while Smartmovers fell 4-0 away at New Inn Wacker.

Despite a goal from Jamie Tuck, Openwork United are also out following a 4-1 defeat at home to A2B Taxis FC.

Swiss Chalet were beaten heavily on their travels – losing 7-0 away at Tidworth Town – while Sevenfields United did not fare any better on home turf after going down 7-3 against Worton & Cheverell.

Purton Redhouse received a walkover victory against Chalke Valley, as did Uppercuts in their home fixture against Laverstock & Ford.

Chiseldon were on the wrong end of a walkover, though, as they did not play their fixture away at Langford United.

Elsewhere in league matches, AFC Stratton maintained their 100 per cent start in Division Three following a 2-0 victory away at Bakers Sunday.

Tom Bracey’s 20th-minute strike put Stratton in front before Alasdair Little’s goal just after the hour mark made the points safe.

Covingham United also won – earning a 4-0 victory at home to Woven.

Dan Hulse (2), Joshua Fox and Harry Pollock got the goals
