Motors romp home in Replay

F A VASE 2nd qualifying round replay



Vauxhall turned in their best display of the season so far, to blow a lively Cheadle Town side away and set up a First Round Proper meeting with Seaham Red Start next month.


The Motormen got off to a perfect start, with Kyle Scarisbrick firing home a right foot shot from just inside the area beyond the grasp of Cheadle keeper Dane Smith.  Ten minutes later Motors had doubled their advantage when a looping header, again from Scarisbrick deceived the visiting keeper to drop into the net. Cheadle were not without their our efforts and Rubeu Arbeu was particularly close with one shot across the face of goal which went only inches wide of the far post.


After the break, Motors wasted no time in extending their lead, when a great through ball put Ben Greenop through the middle and he finished in style to make it 3-0 on 47 minutes. Ten minutes later, another superb 40-yard pass played out from the back put Danny Cross in the clear on the left and his exquisite lob over the advancing keeper made it 4-0.


On 75 minutes, the lively Greenop raced through the visitors defence only to be cynically brought down by Liam Delaney.  The defender saw red and Cross converted the resultant spot kick for 5-0.  And four minutes later, the icing on the cake – a 30-yard piledriver from home captain Tom Mitchell, to seal a fantastic victory.  Even in the later stages, Cheadle kept plugging away and but for the fine saves of Matty Lavelle in the home goal, may well have made a game of it, but on this night, every Motors players turned up to put in a superb performance.
