MALVERN Town Reserves were in seventh heaven as they blew away Tenbury Town with a 7-0 win in the Herefordshire FA League Premier Division.

Blustery wind made conditions tricky for both sides but hosts Malvern went ahead after just three minutes through Dave Hadden from 12 yards.

On 11 minutes Jack Cullity found the net with a sweet strike and it was three by the 20 mark as Ben Price finished off another slick move.

The pacy Hadden weighed in with his second to make it 4-0 at half-time.

It took 10 minutes after the restart for Malvern to score again as Price notched his second.

Hadden was denied by a penalty save but on 72 minutes he broke through before unselfishly squaring for Henry Dyde to tap in.

Malvern wrapped up the scoring late on when Lanre Giwa slotted home from close range.

Manager Peter Daffin said: “This was a good team performance, especially in the first half against a strong wind.

“We kept the ball well with some short, sharp passing as we used the width of the pitch to stretch our visitors’ defence.

“It was good to see the lads take on board the things we’ve worked on in training.

"Our finishing was good and we scored some impressive goals.

“Defensively we looked solid and the midfield worked hard so it was a good day for us.”

The teams play the return fixture on Saturday (2.30pm).
