SWINDON Supermarine fell to a 3-0 defeat in their opening Southern League Premier South fixture away at Hayes & Yeading on Saturday.

Francis Amartey opened the scoring for the hosts during the first half before Hassan Jalloh doubled Hayes & Yeading’s lead early into the second period.

Jamie Hanlon sealed the victory late on with a first-time finish after Martin Horsell had done well to keep out Amartey just prior.

Highworth Town also fell to defeat in their opening Southern League Division One South fixture away to Frome Town at the weekend.

In front of 867 in North Somerset, Highworth battled away despite several first-team regulars missing through injury before going down to a Jon Davies strike.

Highworth’s debutant goalkeeper Tom Clapp made a handful of excellent saves before the best chance of the game fell to Sean Wood early in the second period. Unfortunately for the Worthians, Wood could not quite hit the target with his header from an Edenborough cross.

The only goal followed shortly afterwards when Rex Mannings and Simpson combined to set up Davies on the edge of the penalty area and he slammed home into the bottom corner.

Royal Wootton Bassett Town secured the only positive result of the weekend following a 2-2 draw at home to Chipping Sodbury Town.

Macauley Dodson’s header deep into stoppage time rescued a point for Sam Collier’s men following an entertaining game at the Gerard Buxton Sports Ground.

Tom Moore’s goal put Bassett ahead, only for Lewis Bezer and Kye Simpson to turn the game on its head.

But with injury time coming to a close, debutant full back Khedive McIntosh worked a give-and-go with Gio Wrona from a throw in on the left side and delivered a towering cross to the far post.

An unmarked Dodson raced to the edge of the six-yard box and guided a looping header over Chipping Sodbury shot stopper Josh Langley and into the far corner.
