THAME travelled to Witney for tough game which they came through with a 4-2 win to give them the top spot in Division Four after two games.

Snuggs put Thame in the lead and Brown capitalised on more Thame pressure to lift the ball over the keeper from close range for 2-0.

After the break Thame’s dominance began to take it’s toll as Witney had a player sin-binned and Merrick rubbed salt in the wound by making it 3-0 to the visitors.

Witney pulled one back but Birkett put the game to bed with a penalty stroke.

Witney pulled a consolation back in the dying minutes.

Meanwhile, the Mens seconds really found their form in their second league fixture of the season with key players Steve Potter, Laurence Archer and David Bruggink returning to the squad in a 3-1 win over Abingdon.

Thame’s goals all came in the first half. The first, ten minutes in from man of the match Bruggink.

Archer scored the second from a well worked short corner routine and Bruggink then came back with a third leaving Thame comfortably ahead.

Abingdon returned from half-time with fighting spirit but determined defensive play from Ben McKeown and Tom Harris held the scoreline for some 15 minutes before Abingdon spotted a gap, seized the opportunity, and scored the second half’s only goal.
