MALVERN Town enjoyed a Buildbase FA Vase romp in the sun with a 5-2 victory over NKF Burbage.

Saturday's win at Stourport Swifts' Walshes Meadow booked a first round proper visit to Coventry outfit GNP Sports from Midland League Division One on Saturday, October 12.

The 13th minute proved to be lucky for Malvern when a long throw-in found Harry Clark who cut inside to fire home the opener.

Town doubled their advantage when a corner was only half-cleared by the keeper and James Febery looped his header into the net.

Ethan Moran and Sam Hunt went close before Matt Turner was denied by the alert keeper.

A low Burbage strike flashed wide but then Malvern made it 3-0 when Moran curled in a stunner.

George Hayes and Clark were thwarted by the keeper while Haydn Whitcombe saved an effort comfortably at the other end.

But Malvern won a penalty for handball just before half-time and Turner fired home from the spot.

Within minutes Turner was fouled inside the area and this time Matt Fusco buried the spot-kick for a five-goal interval lead.

Moran forced a second-half save and substitute Ben Miller lifted the ball just over following a good run.

But Burbage pulled a goal back on the hour mark with another penalty.

Malvern tried to restore their five-goal lead with Turner going close and Clark hitting the post as well as the bar later on with an acrobatic effort.

With 20 minutes left Burbage squandered an opening but they kept pressing and bagged a second consolation goal.

Malvern head to Tytherington Rocks in Hellenic League Division One West on Saturday (3pm).

Malvern: Whitcombe, Hayes (Smith 82), Hunt, A Sauntson, J Sauntson, J Febery, Moran (Miller 54), Craven (Loader 58), Turner, Fusco, Clark. Subs not used: B Febery, Weaver.

Meanwhile, Town's reserves claimed their second win in a row courtesy of a 3-1 triumph at Kingstone Rovers.

After falling behind in the Herefordshire FA League Premier Division clash, goals from Henry Dyde, Dave Hadden and Matt Curtis secured victory.

Malvern visit Shobdon on Saturday (2.30pm).
