CHIPPENHAM & DISTRICT SUNDAY LEAGUE DIVISION FOUR PREVIEW: Newcomers bid to put down early marker
5:00pm Friday 6th September 2013 in News
LAST week's big winners in Division Four were Bath Road FC, who went flying out of the blocks with an 8-2 win over fellow newcomers The Mallard.
Bath Road will look to follow that success up with another three points when they visit Trowbridge Rangers (Sunday), who were unable to raise a team last weekend.
Melksham Forest Community Centre will start their season at Bremhill View Boys and Chris Edes hosts are predicted to pick up a second successive victory following from their 4-2 win over Miller Sports B.
Cavalier will have home advantage for their meeting with Miller Sports B but that will count for nothing as Andy Holman’s side have managed just one win on home soil in their 18 previous attempts.
Miller will be bidding for their first-ever win in the league while Cavalier will be looking for a second in 29 games.
Corsham Centre Youth are among the favourites to challenging for the top spot come next April, but Oakhill, who looked to be a completely different side from last season and who started with a 7-3 triumph over Cavalier, will be out to give them a run for their money.
White Horse (Sunday) B were left kicking their heels last weekend after Trowbridge Rangers (Sunday) pulled out of their planned fixture due to a shortage of players, so Chris Webber’s side will try again this weekend to start their league campaign when they visit Cross Keys Rowde. who themselves failed to play their game at Melksham Forest.
