The First Division action got underway on Friday evening, with Wells overturning an early deficit to defeat Oldland Abbotonians 4-1. The hosts went ahead in the opening minute of the game through Cash Vinall, but it was all downhill from there for the O’s who conceded an equaliser midway through the first half to Harry Foster. Tom Hill then handed Wells the lead three minutes before the interval, with Foster scoring twice during the second half to claim a hat-trick.

Saturday’s standout result occurred at the Southfields Rec, where Radstock Town stormed to a 7-2 victory at home to Corsham Town. The two sides played out a pair of draws last season, but it was the Miners who laid down an early season marker this time around with the ever-prolific James Rustell bagging a hat-trick. Further goals for the home side came from Morgan Skipp, Sam Gregory, Scott Gregory and Jack Biddiscombe, with Josh Bright and Jamal Chevolleau scoring consolation strikes for the stunned Reds.

Bishop Sutton responded excellently to their opening day defeat, beating Welton Rovers 3-0 despite suffering two red cards in the first half. Sutton claimed a 19th minute lead at West Clewes when Sam Downes reacted quickest to a loose ball in the box, but the visitors then threatened to undo all of their hard work, losing both Nathan Rendell and Adam Mahdi just prior to half-time. The nine-men battled on in the second half, capitalising on a Rovers sin bin to add two goals to their lead, with Downes’ second goal of the afternoon wrapping up a memorable victory.

Stuart Windsor scored his second double in the space of a week to lead Calne Town to a 3-0 win away at Lebeq United. Having accounted for both of the Lilywhites goals in their victory last weekend, Windsor struck twice after the interval at Oaklands Park, either side of a Josh Hard effort to maintain Calne’s winning start.

Wincanton Town sit third at the end of game-week two, eventually coming out on top by three goals to two in a topsy-turvy affair away at Bishops Lydeard. Dan Golden scored the only goal in the first half to put Wincanton ahead, before Miles Quick levelled affairs seven minutes after the interval. Town’s lead was restored 20 minutes from time thanks to Matt Howell, with the home side hitting back instantly via the penalty spot through Luke Bryant. The points looked set to be shared, but Wincanton’s star man Toby Dolton Cole had other ideas, and after opening his account last weekend, their top scorer from last season made it two in two with an 83rd minute winner.

Sherborne Town secured their first three points of the season, with goals from Ash Clarke and debutant Alex Murphy leading them to a 2-1 victory away at Longwell Green Sports.

Warminster Town were also successful on their travels, beating Devizes 3-1 in an entertaining early-season Wiltshire derby. Warminster are now one of 13 sides to have three points from two games, with Jack Miluk, Charlie Walton and debutant Francois Allen all grabbing goals in the victory, while Devizes suffered a second defeat despite drawing level at the end of the first half through Jack Hopper.

Almondsbury were also successful by three goals to one, with their first win of the campaign coming away at the winless Ashton & Backwell United. Having drawn a blank at home last weekend, the Almonds will be happy with their productive afternoon in front of goal at the Lancer Scott Stadium where Greg Parr, Matt Davies and Dan Lane all found the back of the net.

Portishead were another side to claim their first win of the campaign, with goals from Luke Coghlan, Paddy Royal and substitute Dan Parslow helping them defeat Bristol Telephones 3-0.
