FAIRFORD Town made it two wins in the Hellenic League Premier Division in four days with a sensational 7-1 romp against Ardley United on Tuesday night.

Jody Bevan’s side triumphed 2-0 at Easington Sports at the weekend and carried that good form into their return to home turf at Cinder Lane against Ardley.

Fairford got off to a dream start and broke the deadlock inside the opening minute when Aiden Bennett poked home after Ben Lodge’s initial effort had come back off the post.

Lodge was able to get on the scoresheet himself soon afterwards after being played in on goal by Connor Thompson.

An own goal put the hosts 3-0 to the good as John Watson’s cross cannoned off the Ardley keeper’s legs and ended up in the net.

Lodge got his second of the night after being set up by Harvey Scholes, who also provided the next as Ellis Dunton headed home a corner to see Bevan’s troops take a 5-0 lead into half-time.

The one-way traffic continued after the restart as Bennett also brought up his brace on the night after being played in by Mason Thompson.

Ben Saunders then got himself on the scoresheet not long after coming off the bench to bring up Fairford’s magnificent seven.

Although Ardley had the final word by netting a late consolation, it did little to take the gloss off a fine night for Fairford.

Shrivenham had also been due in action in the Hellenic Premier Division but saw their home game against Easington postponed owing to the wet weather.

Swindon Supermarine’s scheduled Southern League Challenge Cup clash at home to Frome Town was also called off.

Marine are back in action as early as Wednesday evening as they travel to Bradford Town in the quarter-finals of the Wiltshire Premier Shield.

Swindon Town, Chippenham Town and Salisbury were victorious in their own last-eight ties a week ago.

Highworth Town also saw their Tuesday night fixture fall foul of the weather.

The Worthians were due to travel to Winchester City in Southern League Division One South.
