MARSHFIELD dropped their first points of the season in their quest to become Trowbridge and District League Division One champions at the weekend when drawing 2-2 with Warminster United.

Though Tom Richards and Keiron Tarrant earned Marshfield a two-goal lead, United fought back to level the match after Chris Bridel and Liam Flowers scored one each.

Fellow title hopefuls Devizes Town Reserves took full advantage of Heytestbury’s game being called off and moved into second place following a confident 3-1 victory over Three Daggers.

Goals from Angus Webster, Ben Tylee and Richard Tandy closed Marshfield’s lead at the top to five points. Wayne Wheeler was on the scoresheet for Three Daggers.

Elsewhere, Hilperton United continued their purple patch of form by beating winless Warminster Town Reserves 7-1.

Alfie Francis led the way for Hilperton with a hat-trick with Ryan Underwood, Dan Plank, Joey Cunningham and an own goal making up the seven.

Sam McEntee struck for a spirited Warminster side who played the match with only 10 players.

In the final Division One game, Semington Magpies picked up their second win of the season to move into seventh.

They defeated Freshford United 3-0 – Ben Jenkins struck first for The Magpies from the spot then scored his second with a powerful header from a corner.

Kelvin Lockwood made it 3-0 just before the break following a lovely passing move involving Tony McElhone and Chris Berrelly.

In Division Two, Staverton won an eighth game on the spin to remain top of the league – this time Seend United were defeated.

A hat-trick from Alex Shaw, two from Brandon Mould and one from Charlie Barber kept up the perfect league record for Staverton.

Seend United’s consolation marker was scored by Tom Jones.

Meanwhile, KEW PR FC are hot on the heels of Staverton and also continue to boast a perfect league record after they made it six out of six when downing Westbury United Reserves 5-1.

All of KEW PR goals came in the first half with captain Ricky Trott scoring the first after six minutes with a back-post header.

Dave Percival scored the second after eight minutes and Mark Maguire added another with 11 played.

Pat Kapalka scored the fourth on 32 minutes before Maguire scored his second and KEW’s fifth shortly before the break. Westbury regrouped in the second half, playing much better and scored a consolation through Max Bishop.

Calne Eagles sit in third place, but lost ground on the leading pair after they lost 3-2 to The Stiffs - who picked up their second league win of the season.
