CORSHAM Town manager Justin Flowers is pleased with the progression his side are showing after they toiled to a 1-0 win over Wiltshire rivals Chippenham Park in Toolstation League Division One on Saturday, writes JONATHAN LEIGHFIELD.

Jamal Chevolleau scored the only goal of the game just after the hour, latching onto a through ball and firing low into the bottom corner to help record Town’s fifth win a row.

Flowers felt his side showed great character in the victory and acknowledged that they would have been unlikely to produce the same result earlier in the year.

Corsham’s three previous wins were all claimed by a single goal too, and Flowers believes the different styles they have achieved those results by shows how far they have come as a team.

He said: “We were the better side all day, to be honest. Park only had one shot on target right at the end, so it was one of those games where we just had to be patient.

“At the start of the season, I don’t think we would have been able to get the win, so it’s really good to see that progression.

“That keeps the run going too. We’ve had one loss this year and we’re just trying to keep that run going until the end of the season, really.”

Central to Corsham’s recent run of excellent form has been striker Chevolleau.

The in-form goal-getter has bagged six in his previous four appearances, and has single-handedly produced the strikes that have helped Corsham claim 15 points from the last 15 available.

Flowers could not be more proud of his frontman, and believes he could become one of the best strikers in the league before too long.

Flowers said: “Jamal has been brilliant. Not just his performances, but I believe he’s now scored 10 goals in 11 starts now.

“Whenever he starts, he scores, and he’s been a massive reason as to why we’ve been getting the results recently.

“Last week, he got a hat-trick and he got a winning goal this week.

“While the whole team is playing well, it does really help to have someone who can score goals like that.

“I spoke to him this week and I told him that I believe he could be one of the best strikers in the league.”

Elsewhere, Calne Town’s Matthew Hudson scored late before being sent off as the Bremhill View side beat Longwell Green Sports 1-0.

Warminster Town drew 2-2 against Bishop Sutton, while Devizes Town were well beaten at home to Portishead Town, going down 3-0.
