Melksham Town ended the week in second spot in the Toolstation Western League Premier Division after a 21st minute goal from Rob Hobbs handed them a 1-0 victory away at the in-form Hengrove Athletic on Saturday.

At the Ridings, a hat-trick from George Box led Chipping Sodbury Town to a surprise 3-1 victory over Bradford Town.

Sodbury hadn’t gained three points for over two months, and they found themselves level at the break after Bradford’s Matty Morris had cancelled out Box’s opener.

Box then struck midway through the second period to restore the home side’s lead, before completing his treble 5 minutes from time following a well worked counter-attack.

At the Hand Stadium, Brad Ausden’s penalty and a second half strike from Aidan Moyle led Willand Rovers to a 2-0 win away at Clevedon Town, while the fixture between Wellington and Hallen finished goalless.

Ben Allen and Joe Woodley starred for Longwell Green Sports during their 3-1 win over relegation rivals Wells City, and in Bath, Odd Down defeated Cadbury Heath 3-2, thanks to an opening minute goal from Ash McGrane and a pair of free-kicks from Lewis Dunn.

In the First Division, Westbury United completed the perfect week, defeating promotion rivals Keynsham Town 2-0 at Meadow Lane.

Following victory over Roman Glass on Wednesday evening, Westbury backed that up with another crucial three points, seeing off Keynsham, thanks to goals either side of the break from Joe Stradling and Josh Ferguson.

Roman Glass St George responded well to their defeat in midweek, winning 1-0 away at Welton Rovers, thanks to Joe Swift’s 59th minute penalty.

Jack Hopper’s brace, plus goals from Josh Brigham and Tom Slater led Devizes Town to a 4-0 triumph at home to Bishop Sutton, while a very healthy crowd of 264 were in attendance from Corsham Town’s goalless draw with Chippenham Park.

Despite losing star man Harry Vandervell to a 16th minute injury, Sherborne Town defeated Warminster Town 2-0, thanks to second half goals from Marc Caines and Tim Trevett.
