CORSHAM Town Reserves are the new leaders of the Wiltshire League Premier Division after a battling 2-1 victory away at Ludgershall Sports on Saturday.

Kintbury Rangers had started the day at the head of the standings but drop to fourth following a break from league action due to their involvement in the Berks & Bucks Senior Trophy at the weekend.

Corsham got the ball rolling early on against Ludgershall through a goal from Darrin Moss inside the opening 10 minutes, and he then turned provider to set up Dan Lardner to make it 2-0.

Although Sports were able to pull a goal back, Corsham held firm to climb into top spot.

Shrewton United sit second in the table, one point behind Corsham, after romping to a 5-2 success at home to Purton.

Zak McNally and Ronan Clancy put Shrewton 2-0 ahead but Purton cut the gap before the break through Chris Avery.

Saul Johnson restored Shrewton’s two-goal cushion before Clancy got his second of the game and a further effort from Alistair Carvell made it 5-1.

Purton grabbed another consolation through Joe Bailey 10 minutes from time but the damage had already been done.

Third-placed Wroughton are only below Shrewton on goal difference and remain the only side still able to boast a 100 per cent league record this season.

The Weir Field side made it five victories out of five with a 3-2 win at home to Royal Wootton Bassett Town Development and have two games in hand on both sides above them.

Jordan Lea and Kyle Parker put Wroughton two goals to the good before Charlie McCuish pulled one back for Bassett.

Parker looked to have settled any Wroughton nerves with his second of the game, only for McCuish to complete a brace of his own, although the home side survived an anxious conclusion to collect another three points.

At the other end of the table, Pewsey Vale Development remain bottom without a point to their name after being thrashed 6-0 at Stratton Juniors.

Oliver Surridge and Scott Garrett both scored twice for Stratton, with one each from Rory Marchant and Nathaniel Harrison completing the rout.

Max Scholefield got the only goal of the game as Cricklade Town defeated Trowbridge Town 1-0 on the road.

Holt were 4-2 winners at home to Marlborough Town after Joe Moloney bagged a brace.

Dexter Chipeni and Scott Baker also got a goal each for Holt as Marlborough replied through Robert Harland and an Aaron Presley penalty.

Finally, Harrison Archer got both goals as Malmesbury Victoria claimed a 2-0 victory away at Frome Collegians.
