CALNE Town took four points from two games this week, but a sombre mood continues to hang over the club.

The funeral of chairman Brian Hillier was due to take place at St Mary’s Church, Calne yesterday afternoon.

Calne secretary Andy Brewer admitted football had been a secondary concern for the squad in recent times.

He said: “I don’t think the players have been in the right frame of mind. I think they are just shocked with it all.”

In spite of difficult times at Bremhill View, The Lilywhites came from behind to defeat Bishop Sutton 2-1 at home on Saturday.

Calne were 1-0 down after 10 minutes but hotshot forward Dan Lardner levelled matters after the break.

With a quarter of an hour to go, substitute Glenn Armstrong scored the decisive goal as he converted a penalty after Ben Fitch had been fouled.

The Lilywhites fought back to take a point in a 3-3 thriller at home to Brislington on Wednesday evening.

Calne went 2-0 down to two early goals but Ben Moore pulled one back with a header from a corner.

Brislington restored their two-goal advantage seconds after the break before the home comeback started.

Alex Rigley hit home from an acute angle and with 15 minutes to go, Dan Lardner pulled Calne level.

The home side might have snatched it at the death but Ben Moore hit the post.

Calne have suffered a blow with the news that goalkeeper Steve Allison will be out for up to three months with a broken arm.

He sustained the injury days before the Bishop Sutton game when he fell off a ladder at work.

Reserve team goalkeeper Jamie Bartlett played against Bishop Sutton but Highworth Town’s 21-year-old stopper Kurtis Sharkey was between the sticks against Brislington.
