NEW Swiss Chalet manager Tom Head made a winning start to his new Sunday League role at the weekend, beating Coleshill Youth 4-3.

A brace from Steven Nesbitt with support from Simon Jenkins and Mark Deveralle guided Swiss Chalet to a fine margin win against a Coleshill side that has won more than half of their games this season.

Head, who took the Swiss Chalet reins from Craig Spreadborough - who will now act as club secretary - last week, said his side has the ability to compete in Division One.

He said: “We knew it wouldn’t be an easy game but the team stuck together and earned a deserved three points.

“We had a couple of men drop out on Saturday night but if we continue to play how we did we’ll stand a good chance of climbing the league table.

“The core of our team is good. But we’ve had postponements and late drop outs this season.

“But right now the players are keen to be on the pitch. For me it’s about keeping our seven regular members while trying to either get a few new ones in or others to step up.

“Going forward we want to work out the best team. We might look to bring in some new players.”

Swiss Chalet moved off the bottom of the Division One table following Sunday’s win, and Head hopes the club’s second win of the season can inspire further positive results.

“The team is struggling but I think we can get out of this situation,” said Head.

“We’ve got the players, it’s about making them gel on the pitch.

“The next few games are winnable and it’s not a bad start for me.”

Elsewhere in Division One table topping Greyhound FC cruised to comfortable 4-1 win against mid-table AFC Gas to strengthen their grip on the league.

Greyhound remain unbeaten this season having won all 10 of their fixtures. FC Walcot are six points behind but have a game in hand and a favourable goal difference.

Cleeve Tech FC were the other winners on Saturday.

Jason Cummins’ men put six past Jovial Monk FC to move onto 19 points from 13 games.

This weekend sees two league fixtures take place as AFC Gas host Cleeve Tech while Swiss Chalet will travel to Jovial Monk.

Meanwhile two teams are in Wiltshire County Sunday Cup action.

Greyhound FC will travel to Melksham while Penhill United host Tidworth Town.

In Division Two, league leaders Eldene FC maintained their unbeaten record this season with a 5-2 win against Purton Red House.

The win means Eldene move five points clear of second placed Royal Wootton Bassett Town.

Athletico Marlborough, Croft Junior, Save on Tyres Athletic and Stratton Saints also won.

In Division Three the title race appears a forgone conclusion as AFC Mannington picked up their 13th successive league win to move 11 points clear of Cricklade Park Rangers with a game in hand.
