Perfect ten

Sunday 26 November 2017 - by Stuart Smedley (Updated on 27 November 2017 at 10:12)

Jacob Rendell-Haines was on fire for Royal Wootton Bassett Town Under 13 Blues as he struck six goals in an 8-3 win over Marlborough Youth Mavericks, to make it a perfect ten wins out of ten in North Wilts League Division Two for his team.

Those goals took the sharpshooting striker to an amazing 34 goals for the season. Joey Warren, meanwhile, added the other two Bassett goals, giving him 18 for the campaign so far.

The Under 13 Blues are one of four Bassett sides who sit top of their respective tables.

Joining them at the summit are the Under 14 Blues, Under 15 Blues and Under 15 Yellow, all of whom recorded victories this weekend.

A sound defensive display and strikes from Otis Lewis and Scott Taylor delivered a 2-0 triumph for the Under 14 Blues against FC Abbey Meads Strikers. They now have a three point lead at the top of Division One, though second place FC Chippenham Youth White do have two games in hand.

The Under 15 Yellows preserved their 100% record in Division Three against Lydiard Youth Black. However, they were pushed all the way by their mid-table opponents, ultimately prevailing by the odd goal in five. Scoring for Bassett were Callum Flay, Joshua Irving and Jack Timbrell.

The Under 15 Blues were awarded the points against Cirencester Town Gladiators.

On Saturday, the Under 12 Girls bounced back from consecutive defeats in style, dominating FC Chippenham Youth Amethyst in a 14-0 win.

The girls produced a great, all-round team display, and six different players got on the scoresheet. Leading scorer Poppy Wannell struck six, while there were braces for Lucia Green, Rosie Jones, Darcie Little, and further goals from Edie Harris and Hollie O'Driscoll.

There was disappointment for the Under 12 Blues, who fell to a 5-1 loss against Cirencester Town Centurions in their North Wilts League Cup quarter final. Harvey Fulton scored Bassett's consolation.

Elsewhere, there were narrow defeats for the Under 18 Blues (2-1 against Swindon Rangers) and Under 18 Yellow (1-0 against league leader Marlborough Youth), and the Under 13 Yellows fell to a 4-1 loss against Purton Youth.
