ROYAL Wootton Bassett recorded the club’s fourth consecutive victory following a 2-0 success at home to Thornbury Town last weekend.

As the only Wiltshire side to play on Saturday - due to FA Cup qualifying action and Bradford Town’s postponed game away at Westfields - Bassett represented the county brilliantly and moved up to second in the Hellenic League Premier thanks to their best ever start at this level.

Bassett’s latest triumph - their second against Thornbury so far this season after a 4-0 victory in the FA Cup - was a relatively comfortable one.

It was sealed courtesy of Alan Griffin’s brace, with the in-form forward netting for the fifth consecutive game.

His first came from the penalty spot six minutes before half time as he coolly tucked the ball away into the bottom left corner, out of reach of Thornbury ‘keeper Kurtis Parkin who did manage to guess correctly.

Griffin’s second arrived a matter of minutes later. Having rattled the crossbar, he spun and finished decisively to give his side a commanding half time lead that they would not relinquish.

Sam Collier’s side is set to be back in action on Wednesday evening against Brimscombe & Thrupp.

Elsewhere, Westbury United lost 2-1 at home to Shrivenham in the Hellenic League on Tuesday evening.

Jonathan Peachey-Score scored a fine solo goal before Scott Garrett doubled Shrivvy’s lead in the first half.

Sammy Jordan pulled one back for Westbury, who - despite hitting the post and bar thereafter - were unable to find a deserved equaliser in the second half.

Calne Town is also set for midweek action, with the Wiltshire outfit preparing to host Tuffley Rovers on Wednesday evening.
