In the Premier Division, young substitute Harry Waylen marked his Melksham Town debut with a last-gasp equaliser to save his side’s blushes against bottom-of-the-table Bishop Sutton.
Darren Perrin’s men trailed 2-1, with Dan Kovacs grabbing the hosts’ first goal, before 17-year-old Waylen netted at the death to salvage a 2-2 draw.
In the Hellenic League, Wootton Bassett Town’s clash with Kidlington and Malmesbury Victoria’s trip to Hook Norton were both postponed due to waterlogged pitches.
