MALVERN Vale Firsts enjoyed another goal feast with an 11-1 romp at ninth-placed Cheltenham Civil Service Thirds.

The Cheltenham League Division Three leaders put midfielder Ryan Upson, signed from Worcester City, straight into the starting line-up.

Vale had the perfect start when Matt Strangwood fired home from 12 yards after just two minutes.

But a minute later Civil Service cut through the defence to level, leaving returning keeper Marcin Celmer helpless.

Mario Vieira was sin binned for 10 minutes which seemed to bring Vale together.

Nick Jones crossed for Mig Passaro to fire into the far top corner to give Vale the lead again.

With Vieira back on the pitch, he skipped through the defence on 26 minutes before slotting home a solo effort.

On 40 minutes Upson fired an effort that rebounded back off the post and Strangwood made no mistake with the rebound.

Vale introduced four substitutes at half-time and bossed the second period with five goals in seven minutes.

Substitute Anthony Cakebread scored on 54 minutes with strike partner Kris Bottrell the provider.

Bottrell completed a four-minute hat-trick with assists from Jones, Alen Damadzic and Tom Stone.

On 61 minutes Upson set up Jones to calmly slot in a deserved goal after a tireless display.

Vale reached double figures when a Cakebread cross was diverted in by a home defender.

With a couple of minutes to go a long ball from Ethan Lambert caught the defence napping and Bottrell broke through to net his fourth.
