WARMINSTER Town upset the odds on Saturday when beating table topping Calne Town by a goal at Weymouth Street in Division One of the Toolstation League.

Ben Redford’s Calne had lost only two of their 12 Division One fixtures prior to kick-off at the weekend, but Ian Jeffery’s first-half penalty was all Warminster required to record their fifth win of the season.

Andy Crabtree’s side consequently moved up to 14th, with 15 points secured from 12 games – and the Warminster boss insists he viewed a performance he knows his squad is capable of delivering.

Consistency seems to be the trait Crabtree is searching for. And with Division One, Les Phillips Cup and FA Vase ties set to take place in the next 10 days, Crabtree wants to see players step up to their capable mark.

He said: “We knew what we had to do (against Calne) and stuck at it, which is very pleasing.

“Calne are a good team. Tables don’t lie, they’re top of the league for a reason and they don’t often concede goals.

“We knew it would be a tough game, but our boys produced what we’re capable of.

“I’m pleased with the level we’re performing at.

“Saturday was the first time we have played a league game in a while, it was nice to get back into league action – that’s our bread and butter.

“A cup run is a distraction, but it’s a welcome distraction. The boys all look forward to it, and we now know who we’re playing.”

Warminster have a minimum of eight fixtures to fulfil before the turn of the year, and Crabtree is pleased by the numbers he has available at his disposal.

This weekend, they make the short-trip to Bristol to face Almondsbury in the league – a team that has faced similar inconsistency issues to Warminster having won as many games as they have lost.

Crabtree added: “Games are coming thick and fast. We’ve got a tough run up until Christmas, not that any runs are easy.

“Almondsbury will be a tough one for us. They came from behind last weekend which proves they have character.

“The performance we delivered on Saturday we need to start producing week in, week out.

“I know they’re capable of it, it’s whether they apply themselves in the right manner.”

Elsewhere in the Wiltshire Senior, Corsham Town recorded a confidence boosting win after they beat Shrewton United by three goals away from home.

Meanwhile, Trowbridge Town hosted Devizes Town in the same competition.

Surprisingly, Trowbridge came out on top - winning 2-1.
