BREMHILL became the third team to book a place in the semi-finals of this season’s Knockout Cup in the Wiltshire League with a 5-2 victory at home to Devizes Town Reserves on Saturday.

Joel Smedley and Alfie Presley got two goals each for Bremhill and Jack Pearson was also on target as they moved within one win of a place in the final. Ben Jenks and Lee Himsworth replied for Devizes.

Bremhill will now take on the winners of the last-eight clash between league leaders Melksham Town Reserves and Pewsey Vale Development, who are scheduled to meet this coming weekend.

Wroughton and Cricklade Town have already booked their places in the other semi.

In league matches, a solitary strike for Devan Bryan was enough for second-placed Cricklade to edge past Royal Wootton Bassett Town Development 1-0 at home and move within five points of Melksham at the top of the table, with the leaders having had no game at the weekend.

Kintbury Rangers are a further point back in third place following their 3-1 victory at home to Corsham Town Reserves.

Arron Mason gave Corsham the lead at the break but efforts from Shaun Thorp, Tom Mahoney and George Smith turned it around for Kintbury in the second half.

At the other end of the table, a brace from Gareth Jones helped Malmesbury Victoria Development climb out of the bottom two with a hard-fought 3-2 success on the road at basement boys Bassett Bulldogs.

Robin Collier was also on target for Vics, with Bassett responding through strikes from Colin Cochrane and Josh Dimond.

Trowbridge Town got the better of the most entertaining game of the weekend, seeing off Pewsey Vale Development in a 5-4 thriller after coming from 3-0 down at half-time.

Goals from Jacob Garrett, Tom Taylor and Mark Jones had Pewsey in total control but Trowbridge turned things around in stunning fashion.

Natti Morgan struck twice and Tom Caldicott, Kieran Taylor and Greg Richardson also hit the back of the net for Town in the second half. Tom Ballard notched Vale’s other goal.

Nathan Strong fired Ludgershall Sports to a 1-0 win at home to Marlborough Town and Wroughton were 2-1 victors over visitors Westbury United Reserves. Shane Hibbert got both goals for Wroughton as Joe Maloney notched for Westbury.
