Royal Wootton Bassett Town Under 15 Blue advanced to the semi finals of the Wiltshire County Cup with a hard-fought 5-2 victory away against Castle Combe Colts.

In a preview of their North Wilts League Cup semi final clash, Bassett dealt excellently with the difficult conditions. Leading 3-2 at the interval despite playing against the wind in the opening period, Bassett scored twice more in the second half to make it through to the final four.

Leading scorer Kevin Prouse took his tally for the season to 25 with a hat-trick, while Harry Farrow and Jack Osbaldeston also found the net.

On their return to league action, the Under 16 Blues kept up the pressure on North Wilts League Division One leaders Cirencester Town Centurions with a convincing 7-2 victory away against Ferndale Rodbourne YCFC. Luca Robinson struck twice, with Michael Friend, Jack Langcaster, Jed Phillips, Thomas Pitt and Daniel Warre also on target. Bassett trail the leaders by five points while holding two games in hand.

A Callum Flay goal earned the Under 16 Yellows a vital point away against Fairford and Lechlade that keeps his side in the hunt for a top two finish in Division Two.

Elsewhere, there were four narrow defeats for Bassett teams.

Facing Robins for the second week in a row, the Under 13 Yellows suffered the same result as in the initial meeting, losing 2-1.

The Under 12 Blues were beaten by the same score in their home contest against Malmesbury Youth. Thomas Nicholls was on target for Bassett.

The Under 13 Blues fell to defeat by the odd goal as well, losing a thriller 5-4 at home against Bradford Town Youth Mustangs.

Meanwhile, the Under 14 Yellows put up a good fight against Croft Junior Blue before eventually succumbing to a 3-1 loss.
