Three fixtures to look at in the Shoestring-Chargrill sponsored Chippenham & District Sunday League Division 1 with Beeches FC the team that have a break from competitive action this week. Lets take a look.
Lavis FC vs Sporting Box FC
Both teams were not scheduled a fixture last weekend so this represents the only fixture where both sides will be opening their account for the 2021/22 season.
Lavis FC of course were victorious in the RP Clarke Sheds & Fencing sponsored WG Parr Trophy last season and Aaron Latchems’ men are tough to overlook with a number of decent players to choose from, and will be hoping for goals from Jack Booth and the prolific Derek ‘DJ’ Wheeler who has been in red hot form for his Saturday side.
But Sporting Box are no pushovers and if Nathan Baldwin can find the net, then it could inspire them to victory in this season opener, and with seven new players added to the team, they shouldn’t be written off.
Pack Horse FC vs Sutton Benger FC
Pack Horse opened up last week with a resounding win by a margin that saw them hit double figures albeit against one of the CDSFL’s newcomers who may have been slightly overawed by their opponents.
Sutton Benger are sure to provide a stiffer test this week and that is for sure and although these sides met in a friendly which Pack Horse won by 2 goals to nil, Kai Flack will be looking to the fact that he has a few more of his players at his disposal this time around for their Division 1 opener despite opening with a loss in the Wiltshire FA Sunday Cup last week.
Royal Oak FC vs Biddestone FC
Royal Oak will certainly hope to be able to follow on from last weeks result where they managed to pick up the win and score 5 goals in the process and you would be brave man to bet against that this week.
Biddestone FC opened their account with a loss at lower division opponents in Spires Athletic but they were buoyed by the fact that they were on the scoresheet twice and if they can tighten up defensively then they can be a threat.
