A GOALLESS draw for Kintbury Rangers handed Wroughton the initiative in the Wiltshire League Premier Division title battle.

Kintbury were held to a stalemate away at Trowbridge Town, meaning they could only cut the gap on Wroughton to six points and will stay in arrears even if they win their game in hand.

Wroughton were preoccupied by the Knockout Cup at the weekend and ensured they stayed on course for a double with a battling 3-2 victory over bottom side Pewsey Vale Development in the semi-finals.

Shane Hibbert, Jamie McLaughlin and Riegan Cook gave Wroughton what seemed a comfortable 3-0 cushion, only for them to be given a big scare when goals from Taylor Edwards and Connor Marsden reduced the gap to one.

However, time ran out on Pewsey’s attempts to grab another goal and send the contest to extra-time.

That 3-2 scoreline was matched in two league games, as Cricklade Town won at home to Football ID and Purton triumphed away at Shrewton United.

Will Backhouse was the hero for Purton as he scored all three goals, with Lee Himsworth netting twice in vain for Shrewton.

Meanwhile, goals from Elliott Corp, Joey Broadbank and Ryan Lovitt won the points for Cricklade as Caine Bradbury and Dan Warre replied for Football ID.

The final league match saw Marlborough Town roar to a 3-0 success at Devizes Town Reserves thanks to goals from Nathan Good, Aaron Presley and Chris Deane.
