Spectrum Complete First Win – Premier Division Round Up

Spectrum recorded their first win of the league campaign as they saw off North Swindon WMC 3-2.

Centre back Aaran Taylor gave Spectrum the lead with a bullett header from a corner before scoring a second through Aaron Northcott after a sweeping counter attack.

Dwaine Dodson halved the arrears for North Swindon but Northcott was on hand again to give Spectrum a two goal cushion once more.

A late goal from substitute Sheldon Milsom was little more than a consolation for North Swindon leaving Spectrum boss Bryan Watson pleased with the outcome.

“I’m relieved to get our first win of the season and now hope we can push on with a bit of confidence,” Watson said.

“We lost several senior players last season which have been a big miss and it’s taking time for the new players to gel, so this is very much a transitional season for us.

“We are beginning to play some decent stuff at times as players are getting more familiar with each other’s game, and I expect us to continue to progress each game moving forward.

“I thought we fully deserved our win on Saturday and we should have won by more. Credit to the opposition as they didn’t give up and kept fighting to the end.

“Their keeper had an excellent game, saving a penalty and making two top drawer saves.

“Overall I’m happy to get the win but we still have a long way to go to get to the standards we expect.

“The key now is to push on and keep improving each game.”

Elsewhere, Deers Leap moved into third place in the Premier Division standings thanks to a 5-1 success over FC Dorcan.

Michael Chivers and Daniel Hiscocks were on target in the first half to give Deers Leap a commanding lead.

Adam Bedwell briefly pulled FC Dorcan back into the match but further goals from Aston Glover and Levi Kuenen (2) secured a resounding victory.

Swindon Spitfires and Ramsbury played out a thrilling 4-4 draw at South Marston Rec.

Joshua Archer bagged a brace for the Spitfires with Luke Burroughs and Nolan Paul also on target for the hosts.

There were two goals apiece for Matthew Darvell and Gareth Brown as Ramsbury and Swindon Spitfires both settled for a share of the points.

Village Inn’s struggles continued as they were beaten 4-1 at home by Sportz Central.
