Purton made it eight goals in two games as they recorded back to back wins with an emphatic win over Melksham Town Reserves.

Purton started the strongly, and dominated proceedings for the majority of the first half.

It was defender Callum Hall who got things going after 10 minutes when a corner routine from the training ground paid off and he headed home from a great Lewis Tidy delivery.

Will Backhouse doubled their lead 10 minutes later with a superbly struck finish from the edge of the area, leaving the keeper with no chance.

Just before the break, a Raymond Lovell cross caught the Melksham keeper out and bounced over his head from distance, with Jack Duckers on hand to slot home to make the score 3-0 at the break. Whilst the management team were delighted with the first half display, they were very much aware of the threat Melksham had, so the instructions at half time were very much to keep things simple, keep creating and taking chances and put the game to bed.

Melksham had a 10 minute spell at the start of the second half where they created a number of chances, but were unable to test Luke Kuczynski in the Purton goal.

It was Purton who struck again when another corner routine ended with the ball falling to Mark Chatwin who hit a fantastic volley and contender for goal of the season from 25 yards.

The game was wrapped up on 85minutes when Chris Avery was fouled in the box and won a penalty, which was coolly converted by Will Backhouse for 5-0.

Pewsey Vale Development are the visitors to The Redhouse on Saturday in the Wiltshire Senior League.
