CORSHAM Town boss Justin Flowers is hoping his side’s dramatic 3-2 victory away at previously undefeated Cheddar will help them rediscover last season’s form in Toolstation League Division One amid early inconsistencies, writes JONATHAN LEIGHFIELD.

Josh Bright’s spectacular last-minute volley secured all three points for a team that had failed to win in their previous three outings and had only netted once in that time.

After a goalless first half at Bowden’s Park, the home side put themselves in front before Flowers’ men turned the game on its head.

First, Ashley Alchin headed Corsham level before Josh Hard tapped home on the break.

Another home free-kick was converted in the 82nd minute before Corsham countered once more – Hard storming down the right and crossing for Bright to acrobatically volley the winning goal into the corner.

Revealing that it had been far from an ideal week in terms of preparation, Flowers was delighted to see his young group of players grind out an impressive win at one of the pre-season favourites for promotion.

Flowers said: “I think a win like that was coming because we’ve been playing alright, but we just haven’t had the luck that we got on Saturday – and we deserved it.

“We did well the week before and we were hoping to build on that, but we only had six first-team players available from the week before, so we had to do a lot of work in the week leading up to it.

“We brought in a few youngsters as squad players and we signed three players as well, two of whom went straight into the squad and played.

“It was a bit of an odd week, but luckily it all came together in the right way, so I was really pleased.”

With a third-place finish behind them last term, Corsham have struggled to knit together consistent results this time around despite fielding largely the same players from 2018-19.

Flowers felt the performances have often been up to the required standard so far, but a brush with Lady Luck hasn’t materialised as often as the Corsham coach would have liked.

However, Flowers said that potentially changed during their battling win at Cheddar and hoppes the result will inject some much-needed confidence into his playing squad as they aim to climb the table.

“We were hoping for a result like this to help us kick on,” said Flowers.

“The most disappointing thing about the results so far this season is that it has been most of the same team that did so well last season.

“It’s been difficult to pinpoint exactly why things haven’t gone as well as we’d like, so I felt we needed something like this to get us back on track.

“Hopefully that win will give us a lift and help us go on a good run.”

Elsewhere in Division One, Devizes Town claimed their second league win of the season thanks to a comfortable 3-0 success against Lebeq United at Nursteed Road.

An own goal got Devizes started midway through the first half before Luke Enderby converted a penalty following a foul on Sean McKeon.

Enderby cleared off the line shortly into the second half and Lebeq had a chance to halve the deficit from the penalty spot with seven minutes remaining.

However, Martin Mitchell dived away to his right to deny the visitors before McKeon made the points safe late on.

Warminster Town suffered a 2-1 defeat at home to Hengrove Athletic on Saturday.

Despite making the better start, Andy Crabtree’s men went behind early on as their visitors converted from a corner after 16 minutes.

Hengrove then doubled their lead after an hour before James Vincent pulled one back for the home side.

There were no further goals, but both sides finished with 10 men in a hotly-contested fixture.

Calne Town stopper Sam Thomson recorded his fifth clean sheet in seven matches as they and Longwell Green Sports shared a 0-0 draw.
