TADLEY Calleva A went top of the Basingstoke and District Saturday League Division One, a point clear of Basingstoke Royals after beating Basingstoke United 8-2.

United took a second minute lead through Gus Reis after a half save by keeper Gary Harper.

A clever back heel by Peter White following a Charlie Saunders corner saw Tadley level and on 22 minutes Gary Hibbs put them in front after a shot from Kye Theodore was parried.

Ashley Saunders made it 3-1 and by the break Theodore opened his account from a Peter White assist.

White scored his second three minutes into the second half to make it 5-1 and then after White was brought down in the box, Theodore put away the spot kick.

Luke Allison then put Theodore through for him to complete his hat-trick, his third in a row, Stephen Burgess number eight, before United scored their second through sub George Collins.

There was just the one game in Division Two, after Chineham could not raise a team to play leaders Herriard Sports.

They received the three points and move seven points clear of second placed Overton United B.

The game that was played saw AFC Aldermaston A defeated Origin 4-3, with the winner from Vincent Kennedy coming very late in the game.

It was new signing Jazz Powers who opened the scoring for Origin in the 16th minute, but their lead lasted just four minutes as Mick Legg sliced a clearance into his own net.

Aldermaston were soon in front when Kevin Hill scored from a penalty. In the 50th minute, Bradley Hawkins played a one two with Powers to regain the Origin lead and when Hawkins scored from a penalty after Powers was fouled, it looked like the points would go their way leading 3-2.

It was not to be as with 10 minutes to go goalkeeper Dave Hawkins made a mess of the shot by Kennedy that ended up in the net and then he was beaten again with a deflected shot from Kennedy near the end.
