Davidson double act fires Under 15 Yellows to crushing win

Sunday 10 February 2019 - by Stuart Smedley (Updated on 10 February 2019 at 17:14)

Samuel and Jacob Davidson helped fire Royal Wootton Bassett Town Under 15 Yellow to a crushing 9-1 win against Malmesbury Youth Falcons that took them to the top of North Wilts League Division Three.

The former fired a hat-trick and the latter a brace in their convincing victory, with further goals being provided by Samuel Case, Tristan McKay and Sebastian Turner.

Bassett have just one more game to play and are top of Division Three, three points clear of Fairford and Lechlade Revenants who have three games in hand.

Whether Bassett can secure a top two finish will ultimately depend on them winning their final game and hoping current third place side Highworth Town Juniors C, who are also three points back, dropping points in their final four matches.

Whatever happens, it has been an impressive campaign for the team after they recorded only one point in 2017-2018.

Meanwhile, the Under 18 and 16 Blues recorded important wins as they continue to chase North Wilts League Division One titles.

The Under 18 Blues struck five without reply against Brinkworth Cats, that increased their lead at the top to six points. Brinkworth are now seven behind, with Malmesbury Victoria Youth DT a further point back with two games in hand.

A 5-1 victory at home against Shrivenham saw the Under 16 Blues narrow the gap with current leaders Cirencester Town Centurions to five points. And Bassett still possess two games in hand, meaning they can leapfrog Cirencester should they triumph in those fixtures.

They are due to face the Centurions in consecutive weeks in mid-March.

Elsewhere, Bassett's Under 15 Blues fell to a 5-2 defeat against Swindon Supermarine J in their Wiltshire County Cup semi-final.

Bassett trailed 2-0 at half time and, despite getting goals back through Rhys Farrow and Kevin Prouse from the penalty spot, they were unable to claw back the deficit.

While no doubt disappointed about missing out on the County Cup final, there's still plenty for the team to play for in what has been an excellent season.

The Blues currently sit second in North Wilts League Division One, with a five point lead over third place Supermarine.

And they have the chance to reach the North Wilts League Cup final, with a semi-final tie against Castle Combe Colts set for the end of March.

In other league action, the Under 14 Yellows were unable to build on their win last time out as they were beaten 4-1 at home by Division Three leaders Wroughton Youth White.

The Under 12 Blues also suffered defeat against the team currently topping the table in Division Two, narrowly losing 2-0 against Stratton Juniors Bears.

It was a day to forget for the Under 16 Yellows, who lost 10-1 at home against Cirencester Town.
