Mark Sharratt scoring both goals for the Centre, his first came on 20 minutes when he headed home a Richie Boore cross and his second arrived on 27 minutes.

The Mallard FC 4 Miller Sports B 2
AFTER having a poor result in the Knockout cup the previous weekend when they surrendered a 3-0 interval lead against Sutton Benger, The Mallard FC were apprehensive of their fellow newcomers, Miller Sports B who went into the game at Buckley Barracks after a great result in the cup and their confidence high.
The Mallard started well and controlled the game, with that came the first goal and what a screamer it was, hit sweetly by Jason Dawson and rocketing into the back of the net.
This gave the home team the lift they needed and they continued to push on for a second goal, Miller Sports had their opportunities and were unlucky not to take their chances.
The home team took advantage and captain Adam Foskett came in and calmly placed the ball in the back of the net to make it 2-0.
Miller Sports raced out of the blocks in the second half and pulled and early goal back through Harry Waylen this giving them confidence going into the second half.
However the visitors were put on the back foot again when Connor Dodds rifled hone another stunner for the Mallard, cutting in from the right hand side and smashing the ball past the keeper, superb finish by the youngster.
With the home team 3-1 up they let their foot off the pedal a bit and conceded once again, Harry Waylen scoring his second to put Miller back in the game and pressing for an equalising goal.
But their hard work was cut short as the home team went 4-2 up with the goal coming from Philip Jenks direct from a corner, it was a great start from the Northern Irish man on his debut for the club.
Trowbridge Rangers (Sunday) 3 Oakhill FC 4
TROWBRIDGE Rangers (Sunday) fresh from their first win of the season last term couldn’t conjure up back to back victories despite giving it their best shot at home to Chippenham-based Oakhill who came from 3-2 down to snatch a deserved 4-3 win in a game that they had dominated for long periods.
Robbie Burton gave Oakhill the early lead before Rangers got back on level terms through Ryan Bodman’s well taken equaliser.
Oakhill regained the lead in a first half that saw Rangers lose their captain Lim Gilbert and goalkeeper Martin Cowdrey through injury.
Rangers restored parity through Nathan Ball who slotted home from just inside the area. Impact substitute James Griffiths scrambled home a third for Rangers and they looked on course for a victory but were pegged back by a second of the morning from Burton.
With time running out, Clint Couzens netted what proved to be the Oakhill winner.
