Another comprehensive performance from this young Melksham side. Full of skill, pace and commitment, they are a joy to watch. On a perfect pitch, they moved the ball quickly and decisively against a Downton side that never gave up and played a lot better than the one that played Calne only 3-4 weeks ago.
It was 4-0 at HT; all the goals well crafted and finished and probably should have been at least 2 more with the woodwork being hit. Downton could have had a couple but the home side's keeper is a real gem and made two great saves.
Second half was only 3-0 to the home side; Downton had a penalty after the home keeper brought down a Downton forward after he had been fed a poor back pass but he saved the effort easily. Baclk to the top of the table for these colts; they'll finish top but how long will this League last? It needs commitment from Wiltshire clubs but for some reason it just isn't happening right now.
