James Taylor

Devizes men's 1's faced top of the table Marlborough at home in another local derby in conference North. In one of their strongest team performances, the home side ran out comfortable 2-0 victors.
In a solid first half Devizes dominated possession and territory but couldn't find a finishing touch, with the Marlborough keeper pulling off a number of key saves. The pressure told and Roger Edwards converted a short corner routine, followed shortly by a deflected finish for Ollie Smith just before half time.
Despite spending the majority of the second period on top; helped by numerical advantages; Devizes couldn't find a 3rd to kill off the tie, with Roger Edwards seeing a Penalty flick saved as well as a plethora of further stops from the away keeper. A desperate last 5 minutes saw the men in black endure a barrage of attacks, but held firm for the victory and clean sheet.
