DEFENDING Division One champions Melksham Town A and the winners of 2016, Luxol St Andrews, remained locked together at the top of the table after a 2-2 draw on Saturday.

Paul Gittens' penalty gave Melksham a 1-0 lead before Ryan Bodmin followed up his own effort to head Luxol level on 55 minutes.

Tom Rooney pounced on a defensive lapse to put Luxol 2-1 up in the 65th minute but Jordan Kirk came to Melksham’s rescue three minutes from time.

In the first of back-to-back meetings between Stockton & Codford and Westbury United Development the former chalked up a 6-1 win that saw them move level on points with the top two.

A bizarre own goal from Joe Morse gave Stockton an early lead before Liam Flowers missed from the penalty spot.

Justin Preece did find the net to double Stockton’s advantage and Marc Lanfear’s effort for Westbury was just a consolation as Kieron Edwards, Sam McQueen, Reece Collyer, and Laurence Bartley netted, despite Owen Bartley missing another Stockton penalty.

Three Daggers threw away 2-0 and 4-2 leads against Hilperton United before grabbing a goal at the death to claim a 5-4 success that saw them move into fourth place.

Goals from Reuben Spong and Wayne Wheeler put Daggers two up but Tom Blackman and Graham Griffith levelled before Phil Hampson regained a half-time lead for Daggers.

Ryan Earny put them 4-2 ahead only for Blackman and Griffiths to grab a second each to restore parity again.

Earny struck his second with time running out to snatch victory.
