Salisbury & District League roundup - November 3/4
8:55pm Wednesday 7th November 2012 in Headlines
SOUTH Newton and Wishford bounced back from their defeat at Porton Sports by claiming all three points at Whiteparish.
They started slowly, but striker Dave Warburton opened the scoring, coolly slotting in his fourth goal of the season in the first half. Whiteparish began the second half brightly, but the away side soaked up the pressure well and started to turn defence into attack once more. Adam Payne latched onto a terrific through ball with 20 minutes to go and smashed in the second goal, and Newton moved up to second in the Premier Division.
Porton were on Wiltshire Cup duty, losing 3-2 at Seend United in Devizes.
They had the chance to go ahead when Dave Hartley was brought down in the box but Dano Jones put the penalty wide. Within 20 seconds, Seend were awarded one of their own which they converted, and they made it 2-0 before half time.
Martin Lewis volleyed Porton back into the tie in the second half, but the home team got a third on the break. Andy Fung superbly headed in with five minutes to go, but Porton couldn't force extra time.
