City of Bath 2nds hit the goal trail to pinch final promotion place from Chippenham A
Ten different players got their names on the scoresheet as City of Bath men's 2nds clinched promotion from Davis Wood League East Central 1 with a 14-0 demolition of visiting Marlborough B at Kingswood School.
The 2nds went into the final day of the season locked together on points with second-placed Chippenham A, whose goal difference was plus-three better.
Chippenham themselves thrashed a scratch Team Bath Buccs Ancient Mariners F side 8-1 – the losers’ goal coming from Mark Talboys – but it was not enough as City pipped them at the post for the runners-up spot behind champions North Wilts.
An unstoppable City side grabbed a succession of great team goals, with skipper Tim Waldron leading the way with a hat-trick.
