MELKSHAM Town have capped off a tumultuous period with the appointment of former Chippenham Town boss Mark Collier as the club's new manager.

Collier had taken over in an interim capacity, following the resignation of Richard Fey earlier this month, and had led the Black and Yellows to a thumping 5-1 win over Bristol Manor Farm in Southern League Division One South on Saturday before overseeing a 3-1 defeat at home to Sholing on Tuesday night.

Ben Brooks scored a hat-trick against Manor Farm and added to his tally in the midweek defeat. Sam Hendy added the other two at the weekend.

Elsewhere, Westbury United responded to a 3-2 defeat at home to Bideford on Saturday by beating Evesham United 2-0 in midweek.

On Saturday, Westbury were two goals and a man down in the second half after Ryan Bole was dismissed for two yellow cards in the 61st minute.

Matty Morris replied with a penalty of United's own, and Sammy Jordan equalised late on. But a sucker-punch by Bideford in added time snatched all three points away from the White Horse Men.

In midweek, Joe Stradling and Harvey Flippance netted as United bounced back in style.

In the Hellenic League Premier Division, Royal Wootton Bassett Town recovered from going 2-0 down to Fairford Town on Friday night to rescue a 2-2 draw.

Robbie James and Danny Gudger had put Fairford in front before a brace from Matt Bennett secured a point for Sam Collier's men.

Elsewhere, Bradford Town slipped to a 1-0 defeat at home to Lydney Town on Saturday - Steve Clark's goal was the difference.
