THE Chippenham & District Sunday League had a mixed day in the preliminary round of the Wiltshire Sunday Cup with seven of the 13 entries making it through to the first round proper.

Corsham CC Wildcats were the first team to book their place when opponents 75 Squared gave them a walkover.

The all-Chippenham league clash featuring Athleticow Moodrid and Sutton Benger went the way of first division Benger, who shocked their top-flight opponents with a 5-3 win.

James Weston's double, which included a penalty, Tom Merriman and a Ben Butterfield brace meant that Brad Whitbread’s two goals and Jamie Walters' effort were just consolations for Moodrid.

Semington FC were on the road at Salisbury League side Barford Hornets and despite two first-half goals from Dean Shaw they suffered a 4-2 loss.

Swindon League side Wanborough visited Faded FC at Beversbrook where Faded edged a 14-goal contest 8-6.

Adil Bakali top scored with three, Ferris Lamrabet scored twice with a goal each from Nassem Abourachid, Dan Jones and Zack Manna making up the eight.

Calne-based North Star Club made the long trek to Highworth Town (Sunday) were they suffered a 7-0 loss.

FC Bradford booked their place in the first round after defeating Openwork United 5-1, courtesy of goals from Lee Ridout, John Carrol, Mark Maguire and Ashley Styles who scored twice.

Goals from James Eatough and Matt Poole gave Old Road a 2-0 lead against Alderbury before the Salisbury League side hit back to claim a 3-2 success.

A new-look Somerford side reversed their fixture to the home of fellow Chippenham league outfit Sporting Box, who were making their debut in the competition.

It was the latter who were victorious against their top-flight opponents who played the game with 10 men on their way to a 4-3 loss.

Nick Ridout’s brace and a Dan King single counted for nothing as Joel Gregory, Jake Banks, Beau Clarke and Adam Greeves were on target for the winners.

The Castle Devizes hosted Swindon Rovers and as expected it was the home team who booked their passage to the first round.

However they had to come from behind before claiming a 6-1 win.

Joe Unsworth levelled things on 15 minutes with a finish from 18 yards, Dan Sloane’s 25-yard effort put Castle 2-1 and a penalty from Unsworth after Ben Jenks had been upended made it 3-1 at the break.

Liam Hill added number four with a nice run and finish on 55 minutes, Gary Campbell struck a long-range drive for 5-1 and Richard Macklin poked in at the far post from a Tom Perkins' effort to complete the half-dozen.

James Dix and Sean Horobin both scored consolations for The Foresters Arms, who were beaten 5-2 at home by Swindon Athletic.

A 5-3 victory for Cavalier saw them get the better of fellow Chippenham League side Westbury Cons.

Leigh Blanchard, Adam Bewley and Sam Rogers netted for Cavalier in a first half that saw Ryan Underwood and Lee Causon score for the Cons.

Gary McLaughlin got Cons’ back on level terms before Blanchard scored another two to claim his hat-trick and complete Cavalier’s tally.
