A Thumping Success

Rylands Way, 5th March 2011

It's been a long while since Wootton Bassett Town have recorded such a convincing victory in the Hellenic Premier Division, but Dave Turner's side did just that as they romped to three points against Abingdon Town, winning 4-1.

Of their nine previous league triumphs this season, just four have been by a two goals or more with three of those having come in the first month of the season. And since then, Bassett have received more than their fair share of thumpings. How good it felt though to finally inflict one once again.

The hosts took the lead on the quarter hour mark when Sam Collier fired home. It's also been a difficult time for him of late, with just two goals in his last twelve appearances. He showed his scoring instincts had not deserted him on the stroke of half time though when he bundled home a second, which was all that the hosts deserved for a dominant first half display.

Bassett's clean sheet remained intact until just seven minutes were left on the clock as Lance Williams found the back of the net for the seventh time in eight games to give his side a glimmer of hope.

But it would have been unjust had they got anything from this game. Alex Green - netting his tenth of the campaign - and Mitch Wyatt ensured they wouldn't, both scoring in the game's dying seconds to put gloss on an outstanding home performance.
