Royal Wootton Bassett Town's return to league action was a chastening experience as they were well beaten 6-1 by Westfields, the Hellenic League Premier Division newcomers demonstrating why they are considered one of the favourites for the title this season.

The visitors were a class above and in control throughout. They went ahead early, Aidan Thomas beating the offside trap to latch onto a good through ball before slotting home. Richard Greaves then doubled their advantage from the spot after Tom Cole was caught out from a long ball and conceded a penalty.

Their lead was further extended just before the hour mark when a well-worked move was finished off by Greaves drilling home a right wing cross from six yards out.

Bassett did grab a goal back as Alfie Presley headed in from Gio Wrona's fine delivery.

But any hopes of a possible comeback were quickly doused as Thomas seized upon sloppy defending to restore the visitors' three goal advantage.

Their last two goals of the evening both arrived in outstanding style. Craig Jones grabbed the fifth before Keanu Cooper completed the rout.
