TROWBRIDGE Town Reserves, who recorded an excellent 3-2 success over Luxol St Andrews in the A&B Cup last weekend, failed to build on that success as they suffered a 2-0 loss at Division One leaders and defending champions Melksham Town A.

After a goalless first half Melksham’s substitute Jack Woolsgrove broke the deadlock on 70 minutes and then sealed the victory with his second of the game.

Waleed Bakali was the unlikely goalscoring hero for Freshford United as they claimed a 4-1 win at Calne Eagles.

After Kubilay De’Vanney had given Freshford the lead from a Dave Percival assist, Bakali stole the show with a hat-trick.

He headed home a Nick Ross cross for 2-0 and another header from a Percival corner saw him claim his second of the game before he fired in from close range to complete his three-timer. Mickey Taraskevics replied for Calne.

After being dumped out the A&B Cup last weekend by Hilperton United, Stockton & Codford travelled to Whaddon Lane looking to avenge their 4-2 loss but the hosts eventually ran out 3-2 victors, but only after throwing away a 2-0 interval lead.

Hilperton led 2-0 courtesy of goals from Jams Clifford and Tom Blackman before Stockton staged a second-half revival with Aaron Donaldson and Brendan Hind from the penalty spot getting them back on level terms.

Like last week Hilperton produced the goods when it mattered, with Chris Foley having his corner turned into the net by the Codford keeper to hand Hilperton maximum points.

One up at home to Warminster Town Reserves, Luxol St Andrews smashed in eight in the second half for a 9-0 win.

Nick Taylor whose goal separated the teams at the break netted five of the nine, Kieran Hard with two and singles for Ashley Bodman and Mark Reynolds made up the total.
