We lost 3-2 to West Wilts, in a very tight game. Chances for both teams were sparse in the first half, with Wilts striking after 15 minutes through a fortunate carry of the ball from a foot for a tap in. They doubled their lead after 25 minutes with a well worked deflection at the back post from a short corner.
Coming out at 2-0 for the second half Devizes spread the play more, but couldn't break through, passing accuracy deteriorated and was punished by a quick break and a lovely lobbed finish into the roof of the net from Wilts for 3-0. The home team showed character to drag themselves back in the last 10 minutes, first earning a flick which Roger Edwards dispatched, then a deflected goal from Andy Tookey led to a frantic last 5 minutes, Devizes unable to earn the draw.
