MALVERN Vale Firsts gained revenge over Worcestershire FA Saturday Minor Cup holders Bretforton Old Boys by thrashing them 8-1 to reach the competition's quarter-finals.

Beaten 5-3 in the cup last season by the same side, Vale built up a 4-1 lead by half-time.

Nick Jones, on his comeback from injury, fired over from close range but redeemed himself on 29 minutes with a simple finish after Andre Rodrigues did the hard work before squaring the ball.

Three minutes late Tom Stone was pushed in the back in the box and Matt Strangwood scored the resulting penalty.

Bret pulled one back on 36 minutes with a controversial penalty from keeper Simon Large after Alen Damadzic was ruled to have handled in his own area.

Vale restored their two-goal advantage just three minutes later when Stone fed Rodrigues who fired home from close range.

Just before the interval Vale scored their fourth when the in-form Miguel Passaro finished off Rodrigues' through-ball.

Jones got his second soon after the interval with a curling effort from the edge of the area.

On the hour mark Strangwood buried a half-volley from 30 yards to make it 6-1.

With seven minutes left Passaro scored two similar goals from the left side of the box to claim his third hat-trick of the season for Vale.
