DAN Lardner scored the only goal of the game as Corsham Town Reserves beat Royal Wootton Bassett Town Development to move within a point of Wiltshire Senior League leaders Wroughton.

With the table toppers in Wiltshire Senior Cup action, Corsham had the chance to put the pressure on in second place.

Lardner ensured his side would do just that after clinically slotting into the corner 10 minutes before half-time.

Both goalkeepers were called into action to maintain the scoreline in the second half, but neither Adam House nor Dave Cardus were beaten and Corsham reigned victorious.

Purton missed the chance to move up to third – they were beaten 3-2 at home by Malmesbury Victoria Development.

Elliott Drage and Gareth Jones put the visitors ahead at half-time before Drage made it three in the 55th minute.

Joe English and Chris Avery reduced the deficit for Purton, but Malmesbury held on for the points.

Frome Collegians beat Ludgershall Sports 1-0 courtesy of substitute Tom Brown’s second-half strike while Marlborough Town against Pewsey Vale was postponed.

Elsewhere, there were three ties in the Wiltshire Senior Cup involving sides from the Wiltshire Senior League.

Trowbridge Town provided the shock of the last-16 stage as they dumped Devizes Town out 2-1.

Matt Dixon and Jacob Sainsbury were the heroes from Trowbridge while Matt Russell netted a consolation goal for the Western League side.

Shrewton United were unable to repeat their giant-killing heroics from the previous round – they beat Pewsey Vale 4-2 – against Corsham Town on Saturday, going down 3-0 to the Western League side.

Leigh Rogers put Corsham in front early on before an own-goal put the visitors two goals ahead at the break.

Rogers grabbed his second, and Corsham’s third, in the second half courtesy of a clever back-heel to put the tie beyond doubt.

Wroughton booked their spot in the last eight of the cup thanks to a goal apiece from Aaron Maximen and Shane Hibbert.

The visitors had Tom Price sent off for a foul at 1-0, but Stratton could not find an avenue back into the tie and they will now be afforded the chance to concentrate on their league progress.

Meanwhile, there was one tie in the Fountain Trophies Cup as defending champions Kintbury Rangers took on Holt.

While the score remained goalless at half-time, Kintbury found their stride in the second period and goals from Jake Rowe, Tom Mahoney and Shaun Thorp booked their spot in the second round.
