Pre-season programme ends with a defeat

By Derek Lloyd

Highworth Town 0 Wroughton 2

Wilts County League side Wroughton took the honours at the SaveOnTyres Stadium with 2 second half goals today.

In the first half TJ Bohane could have put the Worthians ahead but just failed to connect cleanly with a left wing cross and the ball sailed over the bar from close range. Nothing much else to report in the firs 45 mins as HT was reached with the score 0-0.

Curtis Meares made to decent early stops in the second half and although Highworth created half chances nothing clear cut was created.

Sean Hibbert fired in from 25 yards midway through the half with Isaac Douglas adding a second minutes later.

Sean Wood went close for Highworth with a 20 yard free kick but nothing else tested the visiting keeper.

FT 0-2
