DEVIZES Town manager Darran Walters has announced Saturday’s game at home to Chard Town will be his last in charge of the club following a frustrating season in charge of the Wiltshire side.

Devizes need only a point to ensure they finish the season in 11th place, but Walters believes the club could have finished higher if selection remained consistent throughout the campaign.

And having come away with a solitary point from their two Wiltshire ties against Corsham Town and Warminster Town, respectively, the Devizes manager believes the two Easter-weekend games serve as the perfect microcosm of their entire season.

He said: “This weekend sums the season up. I’ve got no arguments with either result to be fair.

“We chop and change players from game to game, four, five or six players every game and you can see that has an effect in the performances and results. That’s football these days at this level.

“We’re not the only side that has to deal with that, but it doesn’t make it easy for the manager, hence why I’ve got one game left and I’m getting out of it.”

Devizes kicked off the weekend with a hard-fought 2-0 defeat to Corsham Town.

Holding the game at 0-0 for 65 minutes, Walters’ men finally scored when Josh Bright burst through and slotted the ball home before the Corsham striker wiggled his way out of the corner to squeeze the ball into the net as the clock struck 90.

Reflecting on a tough day for his side, Walters said: “We were struggling for a team a little bit on Friday – I think I only had six regular first-team players available.

“Playing against a decent side, it was always going to be difficult, but we kept it pretty tight for 70 minutes or so and one defensive error let them in. The better side on the day won.”

On Easter Monday, Devizes claimed a point as Matthew Russell’s late first-half goal cancelled out Harry Barnes’ opener for Warminster.

Elsewhere over the Easter weekend, Corsham followed up their victory over Devizes by throwing a two-goal lead away to end up losing 3-2 away at Cheddar.

Warminster drew their Good Friday game 0-0 away at Wells City while Calne were thumped 3-0 at home Welton Rovers on Easter Monday.

Chippenham Park drew their only game of the weekend 2-2 on Monday.

Park’s rearranged fixture against Calne Town was also due to be played on Wednesday evening.
