WITH the first team unexpectedly out of action attention turned to Swindon College Old Boys’ second team who wrapped up the Dorset & Wilts Three North title at the weekend.

The second string sealed the league crown with a convincing 61-21 away win over Trowbridge 3rd on Saturday afternoon.

Luke Sawyer weighed in with four tries, Ben Cross and Joe Smedley both crossed twice, while Tom Porter also claimed solitary score.

Gary Bandy chipped in with two conversions but it was Dan Thomas by taking his tally for the day to 12 points following six conversions.

The win capped off an impressive campaign for the side, who have suffered just one defeat in 18 games so far this term.

The result meant they are 12 points clear of second-placed rivals Alfred’s Nomads, who have also wrapped up the runners up spot.

The club’s first team, who were crowned champions of the Berks, Bucks & Oxon Premier division last month, were due to host second-from-bottom strugglers Risborough this weekend.

But Martin Lloyd’s troops were handed an unscheduled week off as the away team cancelled the fixture on Friday night as they were unable to raise a side for the game.

However both teams are back in action this weekend as the first team travel to third-placed Slough, who go into the game on the back of a 31-22 win over bottom-half outfit Abingdon.

College’s second string have a local derby to look forward to as they host lowly Supermarine II who have won just one game since the turn of the year.
