WROUGHTON remain on course to complete a double in the Wiltshire League after booking their place in the Knockout Cup semi-finals at the weekend.

The Weir Field side, who currently hold a seven-point lead at the top of the Premier Division table, progressed with a 6-3 success over Purton in the quarter-finals.

William Backhouse put visitors Purton in front, but Shane Hibbert equalised for Wroughton. Aaron Maximen then fired the league leaders ahead but George Drewitt’s leveller sent the game to extra time.

A further five goals were scored in the additional 30 minutes, but Wroughton had the better of proceedings with four of them.

Hibbert scored three more to take his own tally for the day to four and Tom Dingle also netted, with Chris Avery getting Purton’s other goal.

With Wroughton’s two primary title rivals – Kintbury Rangers and Melksham Town Reserves – not in action over the weekend, the most high-profile result in league matches came towards the lower reaches of the table as a battling 3-2 win for Football ID over Cricklade Town moved them six points clear of the bottom two.

Fred Porter bagged a brace and Kyle Pogue-Elms also netted for Football ID, with Jonathan Peachey-Score and Sam Broadbank on target for Cricklade.

Malmesbury Victoria Development were the most convincing of the weekend winners as they saw off Marlborough Town 3-0.

Joe Tranter, Gareth Jones and Sam Jenner got the goals.

Ludgershall Sports were 3-1 winners over Corsham Town Reserves.

Efforts from Sam Walsh, Lewis Pickernell and Liam Courtney won the points for Sports as Corsham’s sole reply came through Darrin Moss.

Finally, Trowbridge Town and Shrewton United could not be separated in a thrilling 3-3 draw.

Trowbridge had twice led through Jake Sainsbury and Joshua Hard, but Shrewton were able to draw level on each occasion.

United then got themselves in front for the first time, only for Town to snatch a point in the last minute through Jordan Gullis.

The Shrewton goals came from Charlie Jackson, Ronan Clancy and Charlie Utterson.
