Share this

Tawny Owl were able to overcome Sportz Central to remain on top of the Swindon & District Premier Division, writes Josh Bird.

Despite a comfortable-looking 4-0 scoreline, Tawny didn’t have it all their own way as they sought a fifth consecutive success.

Tawny were guilty of squandering several first half opportunities including a missed penalty from Danny Cole with the rebound striking the crossbar.

And after a goalless first half,  Tawny eventually became more clinical with goals from Cole, Lewis Waldon, Reece Chaplin and Scott Price eventually earning them a deserved three points.

Swindon Spitfires remain unbeaten in the Premier Division after recording a 2-2 against Swindon Centurians.

Joshua Ukoha and Samuel Long were on target for second-placed Spitfires whilst Paul Aust and Allan Hawthorne made sure the Centurians earned a share of the spoils.

A Jake Hudson brace helped return Bassett Bulldogs to winning ways and moved them into third.

There were also goals from Riccardo Serratore, Nick Harrison and Mark Adams as the Bulldogs saw off Village Inn 5-2. Roger Mundy bagged a brace for Village Inn.

Deers Leap are fourth after a 4-2 home success over North Swindon WMC with goals from Daniel Hiscocks (2), Matthew Hiscocks and Ashton Glover.

Ramsbury were condemned to a second defeat of the league season by FC Dorcan.

Matthew Darvell opened the scoring for Ramsbury but FC Dorcan were able to take control as goals from Danny Horwood, Carl Read and Jake Kitchin put them in a commanding position. Darvell was on target again but it couldn’t prevent a 3-2 reverse.

In Division One, Sport 4 Pinehurst maintained their 100 percent winning record with a narrow 2-1 success at Core Construction.

Neil Mitcham gave Core Construction a half time lead but two goals in the final ten minutes earned Pinehurst three more points.

Haydon Wick produced a fine performance to earn a 2-0 away victory at third placed Moredon.

Marc Bailey opened the scoring before a fine pass from right back James Mingard set up Yasuhiro Ohno for Haydon Wick’s second before the interval.

Bailey then saw a second half penalty saved by the Moredon stopper as the scoreline finished 2-0.

Lyneham thumped Chiseldon 8-2 to move into fourth in Division One.

Chiseldon went ahead twice through Arron Smith and Luke Mitchell but a hat-trick from Mark Holt as well as goals from Adam Crawford (2), Matthew Kennedy (2) and Stuart Curran comfortably saw the hosts over the winning line.

Marlborough Reserves earned their second win of the season, comfortably seeing off Swindon AFC 9-1.
