WESTBURY United moved up to seventh in Southern League Division One South following a 4-1 victory over Cinderford Town on Saturday.

In United’s first season at the level, the White Horse Men are now just a point away from the play-off positions thanks to a 10th win of the campaign.

Gary Higdon kicked Westbury off to flyer after volleying the opening goal in during the first minute.

Joe Stradling doubled the hosts’ lead after reacting quickest to acrobatically turn the ball home from a corner which bounced off the post.

And before the break, Harvey Flippance beat the offside trap to slam home a third goal for dominant Westbury.

The home side made the points safe in the 61st minute when Higdon notched his second of the day – heading in from Ryan Bole’s pin-point delivery.

Felix Miles grabbed a consolation goal for Cinderford in stoppage time, frustrating goalkeeper Jonny Hill on an otherwise excellent afternoon.

Meanwhile, league and Wiltshire rivals, Melksham Town drew 1-1 away at Wimborne Town last weekend.

Mark Collier’s side took the lead in the 10th minute through the ever-reliable Albie Hopkins.

Visiting goalkeeper Mac Boyd then made an excellent save to preserve Melksham’s lead shortly before half-time.

Collier’s men made it just three minutes of the second half before conceding the equaliser, however.

Hopkins crunched a shot off the bar with 20 minutes to play, and Boyd produced another smart save from a late free-kick to preserve a point for Melksham.

In the Hellenic League Premier Division, Bradford Town were thumped 6-1 at home by Malvern Town - Ben Wickens netted the Bobcats' consolation.
