CHISELDON produced a five-star performance this weekend as they claimed victory over Brockhill United in Division One of the the Swindon & District League.

The 5-1 away win was their seventh triumph of the season, and their first game in over a month, as they have been without a fixture since November 25 due to postponements.

However, the away side showed little signs of rust as Tom Davis, Sam Palmer and Tom Duff all registered, while James Lovell chipped in with a brace to seal the win, much to the delight of manager, Stewart Parsons.

“It was our first game back after about six weeks but we weren’t too rusty and we dominated the game from start to finish,” said the Chiseldon boss.

“We have to put it into context because our opponents have had their problems this year and the result is nothing more than I expected going into it.

“It was 3-1 at half-time, then we finished them off in the second half quite comfortably. It could have been a few more.

“I think it is a fair result. We should have played better for a 5-1 result, but we will take it for our first game back after Christmas.

“It was the ideal fixture for us to have, it was a good game to come back to.”

The result means Parsons’ side are now third, one place and one point behind Marlborough Reserves, who Parsons wants to overtake in the second half of the season.

“Top spot is done and dusted unfortunately, but second place is definitely within our reach. It’s what we are aiming for and it’s what we think we can get,” he added.

“At the start of the season, we would have taken second place, so that would be a brilliant season.

“It is tight, but I think we can do it. It’ll make for a competitive second half of the season.”

Redhouse were also in action in Division One, and they were narrowly edged out 3-2 at Swindon AFC.

The visitors took control early on through goals from Daniel Ricketts and Ryan Thackray but Swindon turned it around as Callum Wells notched alongside Nathan Smith, who got two.

Owen Smith’s strike for Highworth Town Development wasn’t enough to secure all three points as they were beaten 3-1 by Marlborough Reserves.

Luke Little, Ben Crame and Sam Hall all added their names to the scoresheet for the hosts to complete the comeback.

Ruby Removals were the big winners over the weekend as they roared to a 13-1 victory over visiting North Swindon WMC, for whom Aiden Williams got one back.

Village Inn also made the most of home comforts as they completed a routine 4-0 win over Moredon.

New Town All Stars were unable to make it back-to-back victories as they suffered a 2-1 away defeat at the hands of Haydon Wick.

Fixtures were few and far between in the Premier Division, with just two games taking place on Saturday afternoon.

Stratton Juniors collected all three points when they came up against Supermarine DC, courtesy of a 3-2 win. Dan Harry and Brendor Nkegbe scored for Supermarine.

The only other game was between Wroughton and Ramsbury, which ended in a 1-1 draw at the Weir Field.

Premier Division rivals Tawny Owl and FC Dorcan battled it out for a place in the semi-finals of the Wiltshire Junior Cup and it was the former who kept up their charge for the silverware thanks to a 4-2 success.
