WROUGHTON narrowly missed out on completing a double triumph in the Wiltshire League this season after losing 3-2 to chief trophy rivals Kintbury Rangers in the Knockout Cup final on Saturday.

The Weir Field side arrived for the final as Premier Division champions, but nearest challengers Kintbury stood in their way of adding cup success to that victory.

Rangers had the better of the play in the first half and took a 2-0 lead into the break courtesy of goals from Fabio Pinto and Jamie Gannon.

Kintbury moved further clear in the early stages of the second half as Shaun Thorp netted from the penalty spot to put his side three goals to the good.

From there, Wroughton mounted a brave fightback and efforts from Tom Price and Aaron Maximen cut the deficit to one goal, but time ran out on their attempt to force an equaliser and send the game to extra time.

Kintbury then completed a swift double over Wroughton as they claimed another 3-2 win over the champions when the two sides met in the league on Tuesday night.

Maximen and Shane Hibbert gave Wroughton a comfortable 2-0 lead at the break, but Rangers turned the game around in the second half.

George Smith scored a penalty either side of an own goal to hand Rangers an unlikely win.

The gap between the two teams stands at four points at present, but Kintbury can cut that to just one with a win on Thursday night when they travel to Purton in the final league fixture to take place this term.

Elsewhere at the weekend, Shrewton United sealed a third-placed finish with a thrilling 4-3 victory away at Malmesbury Victoria Development.

Dan Burton and Charlie Jackson put United 2-0 in front at half-time, but Vics improved in the second half and goals from Sam Brown and Gareth Jones levelled the scores.

Shrewton raised their game again and second from Jackson and one for Charlie Utterson restored their two-goal cushion, and although Harrison Archer gave Malmesbury a glimmer of hope again, it proved to be in vain.

Trowbridge Town beat Ludgershall Sports 2-0 courtesy of goals from Josh Hard and Alex Pippard.

Finally, Marlborough Town and Cricklade Town shared a 2-2 draw.

On target for Cricklade were Reece Gilliver and Michael Lees, while Aaron Presley and Kieran Maidment replied for Marlborough.
