Dan hits hat-trick of penalties as Social see off Colerne
CHIPPENHAM LEAGUE Dan Lardner scored a hat-trick of penalties as Biddestone Social battled back from 2-0 and 3-2 down to beat local rivals FC Colerne 5-3 on Sunday.
The defending SK Fruits Ltd Chippenham League Premier Division champions were trailing to two goals from Chris Dixon – a 25-yard thunderbolt and a spot-kick – before the first two Lardner penalties drew them level.
Ashley Pechey restored Colerne’s lead but Martin Johnson levelled before the break and then put Social ahead for the first time before Lardner sealed the points in the 89th minute.
Division 1 leaders Bradford Renegades were also made to work hard for their 4-2 success against bottom-of-the-table North Star A, whose goals came from Paul Green.

In Division 3, Joe Forester opened and closed the scoring as leaders Corsham Park Rangers beat Christian Malford 5-2.
Kent Kauppinen also bagged a brace and Kadir Ayhaw completed the nap hand, while goals from Scott Evans – who missed an early penalty – and Paul Knight kept the visitors in contention until the 86th minute.
FC North Wiltshire’s match against FC United of Chippenham was switched from an unplayable Stanley Park to their Leafy Lane home and the Division 4 leaders took full advantage to win 7-2.
