WROUGHTON made it a perfect dozen wins in the Wiltshire League Premier Division this season with a 4-1 victory at home to Marlborough Town at the weekend.

The reigning champions have taken maximum points in the league so far this term and hold a four-point lead over nearest challengers Corsham Town Reserves and Purton – and have at least two games in hand on both too.

Louis O’Shea put Wroughton ahead at half-time before he grabbed his second of the game soon after the change of ends. Aaron Maximen’s goal and a Shane Hibbert penalty made it 4-0 before Ryan Banks bagged a consolation for Marlborough.

Wroughton are also celebrating off the pitch after receiving new kit, courtesy of Swindon-based company VTS Smart Repair.

The company is run by Wroughton joint-manager Simon Lowe, who said: “I have been involved with Wroughton since the age of two and my family have always had links to the club.

“I have since gone onto manage the first team alongside Ady Wilkinson. Last season was our first season together and we won the Wiltshire League title.

“I have now taken it on to sponsor the new home kit too.”

Elsewhere, Purton moved level on points in second place after a dominant 4-1 victory away at Stratton Juniors.

Tom McCulloch (2), Chris Avery and Sam Ockwell were all on target for Purton as Stratton replied through Scott Garrett.

Bottom side Pewsey Vale were unable to register their first win of the season as they went down 4-1 away at Melksham Town Reserves.

Dan Sibley bagged a brace for Melksham, while Harvey Flippance and Seth Wain were also on target. Craig Simmons got the sole Pewsey goal.

The most convincing win of the weekend was recorded by Kintbury Rangers as they triumphed 5-1 away at Ludgershall Sports.

Rangers’ goals were shared between five different scorers as Alex Smith, Callum Budd, Fabio Pinto, Danny Lachacz and Tom Mahoney all found the net. David Cotter struck for Sports.

Jason Tatum’s brace helped Cricklade Town edge a 4-3 thriller on the road at Frome Collegians, who had led 2-0 early on.

Bradley Farrell and Jonathan Peachey-Score got the other goals for Cricklade, while on target for Collegians were Ben Griffiths (2) and Barry Sandquest.

Finally, Royal Wootton Bassett Town Development triumphed 3-2 at home to Malmesbury Victoria Development.

A goal from Bassett’s Dale Richards was all that separated the sides at the break. Josh Bolton then extended the advantage before Richards scored again to put the home side 3-0 up.

Jake Fortune’s strike and a Mani Roper penalty gave Malmesbury hope of an astonishing comeback but Bassett held on to claim all three points.
