Table-topping Swindon Supermarine J proved too strong for the Whites, who fought admirably without ever really showing the cutting edge required to inflict their visitors’ first defeat of the season.
Half-term left the hosts understrength against a team who have now won all five of their North Wilts League matches this season, having finished as runners-up to the mighty Croft Reds in 2015-16.
As has been the case in almost every game this season, a number of the opposing players towered above their Colts counterparts and the home team always looked vulnerable at set-pieces – particularly with one Supermarine midfielder possessing a bullet-like throw in his arsenal.
The same player also grabbed the game’s two goals, heading home from a corner to break the deadlock 20 minutes into the contest and then settling it with a terrific drive from distance in the closing stages.
It was no less than Supermarine deserved and the damage would have been worse had it not been for an outstanding performance from keeper Max, who pulled off numerous reflex stops and commanded his box with authority.
Bradley was alert and committed at the heart of the defence and nullified Supermarine’s dangerous centre forward despite giving away a few inches in height. He was supported by Josh and Luke VDB, both of whom kept their concentration and made vital tackles as the visiting team pushed forward.
Luke S had his work cut out against an impressive and physical Supermarine midfield but stuck to his task and put his team on the front foot with some telling through balls in the first half. Tom showed great energy both in the engine room and on the right and struck a post when the game was goalless.
Liam F looked bright on the right flank after passing a late fitness test and was denied by the keeper after breaking through on goal. Toby and Callum also threatened to haul the Colts back into the game in the second half after determined runs from deep, while George’s trickery gave the Supermarine defence some awkward moments.
