5:00pm Monday 9th September 2013 in News
After two games Bath Road FC find themselves top of Division Four.
The league newcomers followed up last week's victory over The Mallard with a 7-3 win at Trowbridge Rangers.
Tom Blackman put Rangers ahead but they found themselves 4-1 down at the break as goals from Matt White, Ryan Hopkins, James Hernandez and a delightful lob from White for his second of the morning hot back for Road.
A second from Blackman saw Rangers reduced the deficit, but further goals from Hopkins, Hernandez and Carl Johnson made up the Bath Road seven.
Ryan Bodman scored a third for Rangers after the visitors to Trowbridge had completed their win.
Bremhill View Boys 10 Melksham Forest Community Centre 2
MELKSHAM Forest Community Centre suffered a 10-2 mauling at Bremhill View Boys in what was their first game in the League.
Steve Badger and Luke Fisher were on target for Forest who were chopped down to size by goals from Stuart Windsor who scored four of his side's 10.
Billy Gleed, Ben Redford, Liam Jones, Lawrence Elliott and a double from Luke DeBoer completed the double figures.
Cavalier FC 1 Miller Sports B 7
IT WAS a red letter day for the Miller Sports up as Tim Knight's second string followed up the success of his club's A side with a 7-1 win at Cavalier FC, whose wait for a win continues.
Dan Rance was the Cavalier’s lone marksman as Harry Waylen scored a hat-trick on his debut for the Miller boys.
The youngster opened and finished the scoring and got one in-between that made up his three. Other scorers were Steve Roberts with two and Nathan Drew and Richard Moules.
Corsham Centre Youth 4 Oakhill FC 2
CORSHAM Centre Youth opened their campaign with hard fought game against a tenacious Oakhill who made the Centre work hard for their 4-2 success.
Oakhill were out the blocks first and had numerous opportunities with only poor finishing goalkeeper Thomson or centre backs Stuart Tutty or man of the match Kevin Hodgekinson preventing any scoring.
On 35 minutes Simon Gray pulled the ball back from a tight angle for Liam Ralph to bundle the ball over the line, but Oakhill’s never-say-die attitude saw then equalise on 40 minutes though Robbie Burton.
The second half saw the Centre get into the ascendency. On 65 minutes Adam Shipman knocked in the rebound after James Lye’s chip had been superbly saved. Oakhill responded to level the match at 2-2 thanks to Clint Couzens fine strike.
With Nick Gingell and 16-year-old Max Shackleford coming off the bench Centre’s game picked up and the tempo increased. On 75 minutes Gingell turned in the area bringing an excellent save from keeper only for Simon Gray to knock in the rebound.
On 85 minutes an excellent through ball from Lye saw Gray expertly bring the ball under control and smash home his second and the Centre’s fourth to secure a first win for one of the title favourites over another of the sides who are expected to do well this term.
Cross Keys Rowde 3 White Horse (Sunday) B 0
WHITE Horse (Sunday) B and host Cross Keys Rowde were involved in their first ever league match, Rowde taking the honours.
Tom Castleman gave the home team a half-time lead. A second from Castleman doubled the villagers lead before Mark Roach fired in a third to complete the home team's triumph.
