Under 12 Blues stun leaders

Sunday 02 December 2018 - by Stuart Smedley (Updated on 02 December 2018 at 20:47)

Royal Wootton Bassett Town Under 12 Blue recorded an outstanding 2-1 victory away against North Wilts League Division Two leaders Devizes Town Youth.

And that result meant they became the first team to take points off Devizes this season, with their hosts having recorded seven wins from their previous seven league games, including a 5-1 triumph against Bassett only last weekend.

But in their rematch, Bassett came from a goal down to take the points as Cameron Iles and Jamie Black found the net.

The win brings Bassett back into touch with the sides in mid-table as they seek to climb up the standings.

Also coming from behind to triumph this weekend were the Under 16 Yellows. They twice trailed Malmesbury Youth Tornadoes, but goals from Adam Carter (2), Tom Lawrence and Cameron Wootten delivered a 4-2 for Bassett that brings to an end a run of consecutive defeats in Division Two.

Elsewhere, the Under 16 Blues pulled within two points of Division One pacesetters Cirencester Town Centurions with a more straightforward 7-1 triumph away against Chippenham Town Youth.

Michael Friend and Luca Robinson both netted braces, while Nat Bell, Jed Phillips and Daniel Warre completed the scoring.

Doubles from Harry Farrow and Finlay Whittaker-Orton secured a 4-1 win for the Under 15 Blues against South Cerney that keeps the pressure on Division One leaders FC Chippenham Youth White.

The Under 13 Yellow and Under 12 Yellow teams were also victorious.

The former climbed a place in Division Two by virtue of their 3-1 away win against Blunsdon Youth, while the latter saw off Fairford and Lechlade 4-2 thanks to Daniel Seedall's hat-trick and a further Herbie Snell goal to make it two wins on the trot.

Though not claiming all three points, the Under 14 Yellows recorded an impressive 2-2 draw at home against Purton Youth, having lost 8-4 to the same team last weekend.

Meanwhile, the Under 13 Blues gave Division One leaders Swindon Supermarine a run for their money, but ultimately were beaten by the odd goal in three.

There were defeats for the Under 14 Blues (0-4 against Robins) and Under 15 Yellows (0-4 against Highworth Town Juniors C), with the latter side seeing the security of their current position in second place in Division Three weakened.
