Wootton Bassett A continued their fine start to the season making it six wins out of six in Division Four of the Swindon and District League.

Facing a tough game against Delta Reds C, Wootton Bassett had to tighten up their defence for this clash in order to secure a 45-32 success.

Liz Kelly was on top form for Wootton Bassett enjoying a great shooting game while Holly Woodbridge offered superb support in the centre court to take home the player of the match award for the second straight week.

Unfortunately Wootton Bassett B weren’t so lucky, taking on Croft D, who are currently lying second in Division Four, eventually losing 47-33.

It is not all bad though considering the B team was only promoted this season and they are sitting in third place behind Croft D and Wootton Bassett A, the only two teams they have lost to so far.

Wootton Bassett’s B string also boasts some exceptional young players who are developing well this season. The club has also introduced a junior team to continue growing the club.

In Division Five, Marlborough versus Lawn E was a thrilling match, with Marlborough only five behind going into the final quarter.

Lawn E eventually won by a single goal, with Marlborough scoring just moments after the final whistle and almost achieving the draw.

Raychem had an extremely strong match against Corsham in Division One, winning 69-21.

The team dominated from the first whistle with pinpoint precision passing by the centre court players with Haley Roberts was awarded player of the match.

Newly-promoted Raychem B lost their match to Moredon A 46-54, but took many positives from the game, drawing the second quarter.

Lawn got back to winning ways with another clean sweep of divisional wins last week

In Division Two, Lawn B beat Raychem C 55-34, with Goal Shooter Abby Simpson awarded the player of the match as a result of the excellent shooting and circle movement.

Burmah A played Nationwide A with the score pretty much neck and neck in the final quarter.

Burmah’s new recruit, Lauren Rogers, had a fantastic debut game and took the Burmah player of the match title with her team winning 46-39. Burmah B also played a Nationwide side, taking on Nationwide B in Division Two and again secured the win, 44-32 with Jodie tucker securing the Burmah player of the match.

Also in Division Two, Abbey Meads A beat Fairford A 50-32.

Having drawn in the first quarter, Fairford went nine behind in quarter two and never recovered from there.

Abbey’s strong Centre and extremely tall Goal Shooter made it a tough match. Abbey Meads A are undefeated this season with Fairford A sitting fourth in the table. Angie Burrell was given player of the match for Fairford.

Delta Reds are looking for new players of all ages and experience welcome. Training is at Kingsdown Sports Centre 7-9pm Wednesdays. Call Chris on 01793 320993 to find out more.
