8:52am Thursday 15th August 2013 in Sport
WOOTTON Bassett Town tasted defeat on their first competitive match at the Corinium Stadium as they were beaten by local rivals Highworth Town last night.
Shaun Carter headed Jeff Roberts' men in front in the first half but the visitors' Elliot Knight captilisied on a mistake by Bassett keeper Luke Kuczynski to stab home a second half equaliser.
Then, with 83 minutes on the clock, Darren Smart poked in the winner for Highworth before the hosts' Shaun Terry was shown a second yellow card for dissent.
Roberts' men host Sydenhams League outfit Totton & Ealing in the Extra Preliminary Round of the FA Cup this weekend before travelling to Binfield in the league next Monday.
