Thornbury Town continued their good form and maintained their title charge with a 0-4 win over Kidlington Development.

Kidlington started the day one place below Thornbury in the league, but found themselves completely outclassed by their opponents.

Both sides got off to promising starts with Kidlington having a flurry of chances early on with Jack Saul putting one chance narrowly wide after a great run through the Thornbury defence.

It was Thornbury who finally broke the deadlock though 25 minutes in to the match, Harry Brock cut in from the right wing to find Craig Lancastle who was brought down in the area.

Lancastle himself scored the resulting penalty.

It was a feisty encounter, with the referee called in to get involved on numerous occasions.

The first half was hotly contested, however Thornbury hung on to take the lead in at the break.

The second half started and it didn't take long for Thornbury to grab a hold of the game again, Lancastle netting his second, slotting the ball past the keeper from closer range.

Minutes later and it was 3-0, with that man Lancastle securing his hat-trick with aplomb.

Striking a fierce penalty in to the net after good work from Harry Brock.

Thornbury then went on to put the game beyond any doubt, as Harry Brock jumped to nod home to cap a fine display.

That left the score at 0-4, securing the points in the process.

With the win, Thornbury Town state their claim for the top two places in Division One West of the Hellenic League.

Next week, they travel to Cheltenham Saracens who now sit in 2nd place.

They are two points in front of Thornbury who have a game in hand as they continue their push for the title in their first season in the division.
