IT WAS all change at the top of the Wiltshire Senior League Premier Division again on Saturday as Melksham Town Reserves regained pole position on a weather-affected afternoon.

Melksham roared back into goalscoring form as they smashed eight past Trowbridge Town to register their 14th win in 16 outings this term.

The Bees themselves are without a win in their last 10 matches and had no answer to a side that had also put six past them earlier on in the campaign.

With Melksham fielding several U18s players, they got among the goals as Seth Wain bagged a hat-trick.

Rhys Talmash scored twice, while Zac Hillier, Dan Watts and Jake Sainsbury also notched.

Melksham are two points clear at the top, with a game in hand on Cricklade Town, who surrendered top spot in the table after a second defeat of the season to last season’s champions Wroughton.

With five wins on the trot heading into the encounter, Cricklade were the form team and took the lead when Devan Bryan notched his 23rd goal of the season in the opening half.

Wroughton, though, were 4-2 winners when the sides met earlier in the campaign and they were back on level terms when top scorer Shane Hibbert equalised in the second half.

With the game heading for a draw Wroughton captain Chris Flanagan netted the winner as his side returned to third spot in the table.

Second-from-bottom Bassett Bulldogs gave a good account of themselves against Kintbury before succumbing to two late strikes in their clash.

Kintbury had won the previous meeting 7-0 but found the going tougher on this occasion before Tom Head and Lewis Sopp bagged goals late on to decide the points.

Bremhill claimed their fourth point of the season as they held mid-table Westbury United Reserves to a 1-1 draw.

Ferris Lamrabet opened the scoring for home side Westbury, but they were pegged back as Caine Bradbury restored parity for the strugglers.
