Royal Wootton Bassett Town Under 12 Blue's 100% record continued with an emphatic win in their first home game of the season in North Wilts League Division Two, whilst the Under 18s remained unbeaten with an assertive victory in Division One at the Gerard Buxton Sports Ground.

A convincing and deserved 6-2 victory saw the U12 Blues, who sit second in the league after three games with a game in hand, win comfortably. The victory means that they sustain their unbeaten record in Division Two. This was achieved by a confident hat-trick and a well-deserved player of the match award for Phanuel Asenso. A further three goals from Summer Jones, Sonny Parmaku and William Smith wrapped up a convincing victory for the team, who have now scored twenty-three goals from only three games this season. Next week sees a visit from FC Chippenham Youth Tigers, who are in tenth with one win from four. The U12 Blues will definitely be ones to watch this season.

Royal Wootton Bassett Town Under 18s remain unbeaten in their Division One campaign after a comprehensive 4-0 victory at home to Marlborough Youth. All four of the goals were converted by different goal scorers, showing the vast goal scoring options the U18s have. Nat Bell, Thomas Pitt and Matthew Purcell all opened their accounts for the season, whilst Howard Evans continued his hot run of scoring form after a brace last weekend. This makes Howard Bassett's top goal scorer so far with three goals to his name. The U18s sit comfortably on eight points in fourth after four games, with a seven point gap back to fifth. Next Sunday they will travel to Wanborough Juniors Yellow, who sit bottom with four losses from four.

The Under 14 Blue fell to their first loss of their Division Two campaign, after a narrow 2-0 defeat t the hands of AFC Corsham. After registering thirteen goals in their first two games, Bassett were unfortunate not to add to their high scoring start. Thomas Davis was awarded player of the match after a superb performance despite the 2-0 loss. Next Sunday will see the U14 Blues travel to Wims 11 Foothills, who have picked up six points from their first four games.

The Under 16s Yellows narrowly fell to a 4-2 defeat to Wroughton Youth White this weekend. Goals from Samuel Warner and Harvey Watkinson were unable to counter out the four goals from Wroughton, and saw the Yellows fall to their third defeat of the season. Samuel Warner added to his three goals of the season to make it four, whilst Harvey Watkinson made it three from four games. The result sees the Yellows sit fifth after playing the most games in the league. Next week sees the team travel to Purton Youth in North Wilts League Division Three. Purton sit bottom after failing to register a point from their first three games.

The Under 13 Blues suffered their first loss of the season to Malborough Youth, who remain unbeaten. Goals from Leon Hudson, who registered his second of the season, and Brandon Jack, who now sits on a very impressive eight for the campaign, were not enough to avoid a close 4-2 defeat. Bassett's U13 Blues still sit comfortably in third after four games in Division Two. Oliver Caskey was awarded player of the match for the Blues, who really think they can challenge up the top half of the table this season.

Unfortunately in U12s Division Four, Bassett's yellows fell victim to a 5-0 defeat. Draycott FC Sparks came full of confidence after registering nine points from nine. This win saw them remain top unbeaten. Bassett fought hard, and were beaten by the confidence brought by Draycott. The result leaves Bassett eighth in Division Four, registering one win from a hard set of opening fixtures.

In Under 14s Division Four, Bassett's Yellows fought hard, but were unfortunate after falling to a 14-3 defeat to league newcomers Liden Community. The Yellows put in strong challenges as well as a high work rate to try and overcome the unknown challenge of Liden, but this was not enough to become victorious in both teams' second game of the season. A stand out Finlay Marshall hat-trick was well willing to receive the player of the match award after two goals in the first half and the third in the second. Manger Josh Carey was still very proud of the team's performance, as they did not give into the relentless Liden. The Yellows face FC Abbey Meads Youth Purple next weekend, who sit second with seven points from their first four games.
